“Fresh Up” with 7 Up: 2-Ingredient Cupcakes!

DSC_5845-001

My name is Mary and I’m a lazy baker. . . I’m happy to use a short cut for a cake or cupcakes, especially during the dog days of summer.

DSC_5851-001

I saw this quick and easy cupcake/ cake formula on Pinterest. These cupcakes couldn’t be easier, made with just two ingredients~ a 12 ounce can of soda and a boxed cake mix!

I used a Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix and a can of 7-Up for additional lemon flavor.

Just cake mix and a can of lemon-lime soda. . . no oil, eggs or water. You can use a diet soda or flavored carbonated water to save additional calories, reducing the fat and sugar in these cupcakes if prefer.

Follow the directions on the box for mixing (minus the other ingredients).  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 18 – 23 minutes or until cupcakes test done with a toothpick.

Voila! Lemon cupcakes from a box and a can of soda~ as easy to make as they are to eat!

You can satisfy your sweet tooth with endless combinations of cake mix and soda or flavored carbonated water when you’re too busy or lazy to bake.

Use a chocolate cake mix + cola, root beer, or cherry cola

White or yellow cake mix + lemon-lime soda, ginger ale, or flavored carbonated water

Spice cake or Carrot cake mix + ginger ale

Red Velvet cake mix + cola or cherry cola

Use your favorite frosting on these soda cupcakes

and decorate with a straw for fun . . .
