1 12 oz. can of Diet Soda
Fat Free Whipped Topping

Topping (Optional)
1 pkg of sugar free, fat free pudding
1/2 tub of Fat Free Whipped Topping

This cake is my family's favorite dessert. I got the recipe from a girlfriend at work. The original recipe used orange diet soda, and an orange cake mix but I have experimented with different mixes and sodas.


Here are my favorite cake combinations:


Yellow cake mix - Diet Lemon-lime soda (Sprite)


Chocolate cake mix - Diet Pepsi or Coke


Devils Food cake mix - Diet Dr. Pepper


German Chocolate cake mix - Diet Pepsi or Coke


Pineapple cake mix - Diet Lemon-lime soda (Sprite)


Orange cake mix - Diet orange soda or lemon-lime soda(Sprite)


My favorite topping combinations:


Chocolate pudding - Peaches


Cheesecake pudding - Pineapple


Vanilla pudding - Mandarin oranges


You can also benefit from my failures. Here are a few hints for a great cake every time.


Be sure you use a 'Moist' cake mix. I really like the Pillsbury Moist Supreme Reduced Sugar cake mix. I have used the Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe, and several of the store brand mixes. They all seem to work fine.


Don't use Fresca for your diet soda.


Be sure your batter has a good consistency. You may need to add a little more soda if you are measuring from a 2 liter bottle.


I don't put my topping on the cake until I am ready to serve.


This cake is very moist. If you don't plan to eat it all in a couple of days, you may want to freeze part of it.
