Super easy cake or cupcakes, the kitchen "cheaters" way

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)

Have you tried this yet? If so, what's your favorite combination? If not, what's your favorite "cheat" type recipe (substituting for simpler ingredients)?
