Mod's Mountain Dew Cake (Rcdc)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

I wanted to make this because of my boyfriend and one of our very nice mutual friends, Doug (Mod), who are basically Mountain Dew addicts. Soda cakes perplexed me at first, but they turn out to be very yummy. Doug claimed if I started making this, he'd lock me in his basement doomed to make cakes forever and that my boyfriend would never see me again! This recipe is very Mountian Dew-yum! Nicknamed the Really Cool Dew Cake (RCDC). I don't like many other recipes of this simply because they have a lot of lemon or pineapple or coconut and it detracts from the Mountain Dew...which of course is the main point for my boys. It even has a Mountian Dew glaze.. If you'd rather ice (or do both!), that's okay too. See my Pineapple icing recipe (#187414) for that!

I'm not a Mt. Dew fan, choosing originally to make it for fans, yet wow, what a gorgeous and delicious cake! Guess that makes me a fan of the cake. This is going into my Best of 2010 Cookbook. Thanks, kayla carnage. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.

This cake has a lovely flavour. I didn't find the mountain dew taste in the cake itself that strong so I agree that vanilla pudding mix is best to bring out that flavour. The glaze brings out the mountain dew flavour so I'd definitely use mountain dew in the topping again. It is sweet but not too sweet if you take smaller slices. It is very moist so next time I'll try using less oil. Thanks for this lovely recipe! Made for PAC Spring 2010.

Yahoo! I have been a fan of Mountain Dew since it first came out in the early sixties (yes, it is that old!). I don't know why I haven't thought of a cake made with Mtn Dew, but I am glad that I chose this one to try. Yes, it is sweet, but just take smaller pieces! Needless to say, I enjoyed this recipe tremendously. Thnx for sharing it, kayla carnage. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted!
