If I told you these cupcakes only have 2 ingredients, would you believe me? I wouldn’t if I hadn’t made them myself, all it took was a box of cake mix and a can of soda.
When I first learned about soda cakes, I was quite leery, I mean the box instructions have you adding 3 to 4 extra ingredients. So my thought is how in the world can I just mix in one can of soda and have a cupcake as delicious as homemade.
I decided to try anyway, and let me tell you I was more than excited about the results. They were so moist and delicious. They pretty much melted in my mouth.
I would have never imagined a can of soda would make a cake so moist. I will for sure be making these again, and even trying some different sodas.
If you try out this recipe, I would love to know what soda you use, even email me with your photos!
