8 inch Soda-Pop Cake

IMG_8501I’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


IMG_84748 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. 😉
Stay tuned…

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.

    • Hi Charisma
      Welcome to my blog.
      Thanks so much for visiting and leaving me a happy comment.
      I hope you’ll visit again sometime.


  1. 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. 🙂


      • 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. 🙂


    • Hey Renee
      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. 🙂


  2. 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!


    • Hi Dianna
      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.


    • Hey Patti
      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. 🙂
