I’ve been wanting to try to make a soda-pop cake. It’s not something that was on my to-do list, but something I thought about from time-to-time (especially every-time there’s a certain commercial on)
The recipe’s really simple, but it’s way to big for me and my husband, so I halved it and made an 8 inch cake
8 inch Soda-pop cake
Put frozen fruit in the bottom of an ungreased 8 inch cake pan
*(You can use fresh or thawed fruit too)
Spoon 2 cups dry cake mix on top of fruit
Pour 1 cup of soda-pop on the cake mix
Bake at 350° for 30 minutes to 1 hour or until nicely brown and done.
*The reason for the broad baking time is that I used frozen fruit and it took my cake an hour to bake. I suspect if I had of used fresh or thawed fruit that it may have taken less time… but I could be wrong.
If you make this cake with fresh or thawed fruit and it takes less baking time, come back and comment and let me know.
The only thing I would do different with this cake is that I would take a small spoon and dip up some of the soda-pop and dampen all the cake mix so it wouldn’t have dry mix in spots on top.
This recipe is that it tastes a lot better than it looks.
My husband says it’s delicious and I agree.
Also, if a person wanted a smaller cake all you’d half to do is half the measurements, bake it in a smaller pan and watch the baking time carefully until it’s fully cooked.
My Bff says her son-in-law told her that he recently had some orange crush cake and it was one of the best tasting cakes he’s had.
So, I guess you know what my next cake will be. 😉
Have you ever made a soda-pop cake?
What fruit and flavors of soft drink and cake mix did you use?
Wishing you all a sweet rest of the week.
Mmm that looks tasty especially those colours!
Welcome to my blog.
Thanks so much for visiting and leaving me a happy comment.
I hope you’ll visit again sometime.
It’s times like this I realise I’ve lead a sheltered life, I’ve never come across soda pop cake before, I’ll have to give it a whirl 🙂
Perhaps you have been sheltered too much. Blogging makes us all a little jaded when it comes to tempting delicious foody posts.
If you make a soda-pop cake let me know how it does for you. 🙂
I’ve never heard of this either. There used to be something called a ‘coca cola cake’ but it was chocolate. I’m totally intrigued.
As a second thought, I wonder how pineapple would be as the fruit and orange crush as the soda? See? You’ve got my little mind just whirling away. LOL.
Wow Renee that sounds tangy and delicious. I may have to give that a try. Yummm.
I know your creative mind will come up with some tasty treats and the desserts.
I hope you’ll share your creations. 🙂
I’d heard of a cola cake but not what it was made with. I didn’t even know it was chocolate. I may have to give that a try sometime too. I enjoy easy desserts. 🙂
Weight watchers has a recipe for a chocolate Diet Coke cake. It’s just chocolate cake mix, and 8 ounces of Diet Coke. At least, I think that’s all there is; I haven’t made it in a long time! But it’s very good.
Your cake looks delish!
I’ve not heard of the weight watcher cake. It sounds tasty too. I may have to give it a try.
Thanks so much. I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out.
Interesting!! I’d never heard of this.
Cool. It’s so fun when I can share a new idea or recipe.The cakes an easy tasty treat.
Might have to try one of these sometime. The varieties are endless!
I’ve been thinking up all sorts of combos that one could make. If you give this a try, I hope you’ll come back and let me know what combo you used. 🙂
