Recipe for the Un-Cook – Diet Coke Cake

I heard about Diet Coke cupcakes and I had to try them.  Word on the street is that these cupcakes, when frosted with fat free Cool Whip are only 1 Weight Watcher point.  I don’t count points anymore but I was still intrigued.  Here is the recipe.

To Get:

1 box of chocolate cake mix (your choice)

1 can of Diet Coke or Pepsi

To Do:

Mix the diet soda and cake mix together

Dump in the pan (I made one big cake instead of cup cakes)

Follow the cooking instructions on the box

Frost with your choice of Frosting

It’s that easy people and it’s really really good.  My only observation is that the cake is hard to cut because it was really crumbly.  I frosted mine with a light layer of regular chocolate frosting so that upped the calorie count but still, I figured I was saving enough with the cake part to splurge.  Now this isn’t healthy or nutritionally beneficial by any means but its a quick and easy way to get your chocolate fix.

Seriously? Coke in cake? What did Chris think?

Comment by Nicole Lawler

He was skeptical at first but he ended up liking it. I think if he didn’t see me adding the Diet Coke he wouldn’t even have noticed a difference between that and regular cake.
