Makes 24 low fat yummy moist lemon-up cupcakes! I like them with no icing but a low fat alternative to regular icing is 1 pack dream whip with 1 small pack of fat free vanilla pudding or simply sprinkle cupcakes with icing sugar.

    These are so good and easy to make. By the way, 12oz is a can of diet 7-up in case you buy a 2 liter bottle. - 4/20/10

  • I love these! It satisfied my craving for lemon cake. I pair it with a cup of skim milk for a wholesome, filling snack worth only 4 weight watchers points plus!! - 6/3/12

  • You could also add a little lemon zest either in or on top. That would be out of this world! - 3/26/11

  • these come out sooo awesome and moist! I had to cook them a lot longer than regular cupcakes. Just do the toothpick test and you'll be fine. - 8/23/09

  • I was skeptical too but I love these cupcakes. The cake mix box says 180 calories for the mix and no calories in Diet 7-up so it seems like calorie count should be less for 24 cupcakes. - 6/29/08

  • This was the first recipe that I tried with the soda and box mix combo.I must admit I was very skeptical, they worked out surprisingly good! I'm not a lemon lover, but my boyfriend is, and it past his taste test. The only thing I added was 2 egg whites, but they still didn't rise like regular ones. - 6/19/08
