Inside The Kitchen: Cake Made With Seltzer (No Egg, No Oil)


My mother told me she saw a chef make a cake using diet coke as a substitute for the oil and eggs that you would add to a mix from the box. This was very intriguing to me!!!! She came over last night to watch the kids so Bill and I can have a date┬ánight and then made the cake which actually tasted good. We used seltzer instead of diet coke because I’m not a fan of diet products.

Here’s the recipe (and you are going to laugh at how easy it is to make).

Click on the continue reading link below to see the full recipe (showing my kids in action).


Pour the cake mix box and a can of seltzer into your mixer… and mix.


Take a pint of strawberries and cut up half of them. Put them in the mixer and toss together. Place in pan and follow directions from box for baking.


Let the kids have some fun with the spoon.




After it cools, put icing and decorate with whole strawberries.


By the time I came home… this is what the cake looked like. My mother gave the kids free range.

  1. Wow.. that sounds awesome! I’m always looking for new ways to cook with my kids… we will have to try this!!

    Thanks for the advice.

    BTW… totally jealous of your mixer. After I get my dutch oven, that KitchenAid is my next guilty pleasure purchase!

      i think the fruit made it too moist….it was crumbly…..the original recipe calls for diet soda (weight watchers recipe)…the kids will have a ball either way….have fun!!
