Here’s How You Can Easily Make Cake Box Mixes From Home

The vast majority of people love baked goods, but they don’t have the time or ability to make these yummy items from scratch. That’s why we’ve got a quick and easy hack for you that will have you baking cakes all the time!

This hack is called soda cake, and it was revealed in a viral Facebook post.

“Soda cake. No eggs, no oil,” the post stated, going on to give instructions. “Just add a can of soda to the cake mix and bake per directions on the cake box. That’s it. Done.”

How simple does that sound?!

The key to this trick is knowing which soda and cake combinations are the best, so here are the best ones:

Strawberry shortcake cake mix and cream soda
Ginger spice cake and ginger ale
Devil’s food cake and Diet Coke
Chocolate cake and root beer
Lemon cake and Sprite
Cherry chip cake and Dr. Pepper

“It would appear that no cake recipe is as easy to follow as the one printed on the back of a cake mix box. But there is something easier, dear cake-lovers,” read another post on this. “Swap all but the cake mix for a bottle of soda. Stir 12 ounces of a carbonated beverage into your prepackaged cake flour, plop the mixture into a pan and bake it in the oven as directed on the box. There you have it: cake.”

People all over the globe can’t get enough of this trick!

“I’ve tried this several times. Comes out so moist! You can use just about any soda with any mix! Give it a try!” one user wrote, another adding, “I have done the orange crush (diet) and white cake mix and baked as directed, nothing else… let cool and cover with cool whip and everyone loved it.”

I can’t wait to try this out myself!
