Easy Cherry Chip and Cola Cake Recipe

What's  your favorite soda?  Cream?  Birch beer?   Orange?Vanilla?  Black Cherry?  Coke? Pick one of your favorites or what  you have on hand and one package of cake mix.  That's the easy recipe for a two ingredient cake.

Make the cake this way and save putting in eggs, oil, and those calories.  You can use a diet soda if you like.

  1. Use a room temperature can of soda. 
  2. Empty the cake mix in a bowl and form a well to pour the soda into, then use your mixer or a wooden spoon to blend. 
  3. Use a larger bowl than you might normally use as the soda will foam up and you don't want it to overflow the sides (forming the well should prevent that.)

I used to buy mixed cans of soda from Shop-Rite and Pathmark when I lived back East.  Any flavors they had, I could pick what I wanted.  There was none of the, "you are forced to buy a package already selected for you," as now.  Where you live are you able to pick and choose your flavors that way?   I have a soda about once a month, so it's not an issue, but I do like freedom of choice.

I used the "Betty Crocker Super Moist Cherry Chip" because I thought it would go nicely with Coca Cola. You can use a different type of cake mix.  The Hershey's, "Chocolate Lover's Frosting" was a recipe from the container of Hershey's Cocoa.  Chocolate and Cherries, I have to say, "YUMMM! ♥♥♥"

Hope you enjoy this easy recipe.  I like to be in and out of the kitchen when it's summery and hot and this cake allows that.  Thanks for stopping by and also for clicking on the poll.  I think I will link this post up at Katherine's Favorite Things and at Terry's Link it up Thursday.

I voted ;o) Gloria, this is an excellent idea for cake! I have to admit, I am not a pop drinker, but I do like a can once and awhile. Now I am thinking what kind of combination would be good! I love root beer, gingerale, and cream soda! This is going to be fun! Take Care ;o)

Yes, can you believe you don't need the eggs and oil, etc. it's so easy. I might try this with another flavor, too. Enjoy!
