Lemon cake mix, lime carbonated water, cherry preserves.
This is an extremely easy cake or cupcake recipe that any kid can help out with!
1 box of cake mix
1 12 ounce can of soda (or any carbonated beverage
Pour dry mix into bowl, add beverage of your choice, and stir well. Bake as directed on package.
Just a few notes:
- Kids can help! No eggs to crack, no measuring needed. My son loves to pour the soda in and mix it up.
- You can use any flavor of cake mix, and any carbonated beverage.
- I did not come up with this recipe, I was told about it.
- I might try this with Hansen's all natural diet soda and a lower sugar cake mix next time, to make it a bit healthier (note, I didn't say healthy :) It's still cake)
