Soda Pop Cupcakes

Makes 12
* 340g (12oz) Vanilla cake mix
* 1 Cup (250ml) Raspberry Soft Drink (soda).
Method: Preheat Oven to 180C/360F. Into a large bowl, pour the cake mix, then add the soda (soft drink). Stir together with a wooden spoon the mixture evenly among each. Bake for 15 minutes or until puffy and cooked thru. 

I stole these from the 4 ingredients website.  

These popped up a couple of times on my facebook feed a couple of weeks ago so I tried it as a cake which was a disaster never to be spoken of again (think undercooked cake and shockingly made icing) but the idea was right.  I will try orange drink with chocolate icing next time and make them into cupcakes not a whole cake!!  

Something easy and simple for Open Slather with One Mother Hen


  1. Where were these easy recipes when K was little ??????????????????
    Have the best day !

  2. serious?? lol
    I'm curious can you post me one to try?

  3. What?! cake mix and fizzy drink. I can't believe it actually works, I may have just found cakes for the little misses birthdays :)
    I've just borrowed two 4 ingredient cook books from the library, some good recipes in them :)

  4. Wow, how cool! I will definitely have to experiment with this. My sister always puts lemonade in her scone mixture :)

  5. Was just thinking I need more lunch box recipes. Somehow I don't think they will last that long. The boys are gonna love these!!

  6. Wow! Genius idea... 2 ingredients only. Thanks for the tip on not trying to turn it into a cake. Will stick to cupcakes. I've also tried soda in pancakes, with just a bit of flour and maybe a little milk... very easy and the soda makes the texture really light and fluffy... same concept as these cupcakes I think
