Easy cake made with 1 can of pop, in the microwave Easy cake made with 1 can of pop, in the microwave
Number of Servings: 16


    10 serving Pillsbury Moist Supreme White Premium cake mix 1/10
    12 oz shasta caffeine free black cherry (by WTFE12345)

    Can use any cake mix brand and flavor
    Use any flavor of pop you think would compliment the cake flavor, can use diet for even less calories and sugar.


It is simple, just take any cake mix you would like, white, strawberry, yellow, confetti etc and mix in 1 can of pop. I prefer Shasta as it comes in many flavors, you can also use diet Shasta for even fewer calories and sugar (I just had a regular one on hand).

Simply pour your cake mix and can of pop into a bowl, you can stir with a spoon or use the mixer. I prefer the mixer because it mixes better and makes it even more light and fluffy.

Spray a plastic container (that has a lid) I prefer a square container as it fits perfectly in my microwave. Cover the container with a lid and put it in the microwave for 8 minutes. The lid will pop up, that is ok! LEt it cook then carefully remove and enjoy. Sometimes I add icing or whipcream and other times I don't, it is so light and moist it honestly doesn't need anything else added to it on top.

You can make any variety you would like, I often do a yellow cake with cream soda and while it is still hot put a small amount of chocolate icing on top so it melts in (really only need a couple spoons). If you like orange, you can do a white cake with orange Shasta and then add coolwhip on top for a dreamsicle cake. Strawberry with fresh strawberries and whipcream on top is also delicious.

Cooking times may vary depending on your container and microwave wattage. The first couple of tries might be a hit or miss until you figure out your settings and what container works the best. I have a big square Glad container that I prefer as it cooks it evenly and in the 8 minutes each and every time.

This cake is SO moist and flavorful, you really wouldn't think so, but it is. It is very springy and airy, if you ice it, it will probably tear and crumble the top depending on your icing. I like to do it when it is hot so the icing melts into it and then you only need a fraction of the icing you would normally use.

Possibilities are endless, for less than $2 you can experiment and find the perfect fit for you. The container I use makes 16, 1.4oz slices at around 100 calories a slice.
