If you need a quick and easy dessert with few ingredients, you’re going to love this strawberry soda cake. Not only is it easy to make, but this 2 ingredient dessert is also super cheap! So it’s perfect for feeding a crowd on a budget.

All you need is a box of strawberry cake mix and a can of cream soda to make this cake. No eggs, no oil. Seriously.

This strawberry cake is the third soda cake I’ve made. I had to try making a cake with soda and cake mix just to see if it worked, so the kids and I made a Lemon Lime Soda Cake with yellow cake mix and a can of Sprite.

That was so easy that we made an Orange Soda Cake with Orange Crush and cake mix — an orange creamsicle cake! Soda cakes are incredibly light, fluffy and fun to make!

How to Make a Cake with Cake Mix and Soda

To make this strawberry soda cake, just add the cake mix to a large mixing bowl. Then, pour the can of cream soda into the bowl. Any brand of cake mix and soda works here.

The fun thing about making a soda cake is when the pop hits the cake mix, it fizzes up like crazy. Double, double, toil and trouble!

Mix the ingredients together until they’re well combined. You’ll get a nice Pepto Bismol-colored cake batter!

Pour the batter into a prepared baking dish, and bake! Seriously, you guys — It doesn’t get any easier than this!

How to Frost a Soda Cake

You can use your favorite frosting. But since these cakes are so light, I usually frost them with whipped topping — Cool Whip.

Diet Soda Cake

You can use diet soda to cut the calories if you want. You can also use light whipped topping for frosting.
