Easy Soda Cake

If you have never tasted a soda cake, you might not believe it. This cake is so simple. It is a strawberry cake mix and Sprite and that is it. This creates a fluffy and moist cake that everyone will love. Top the cake with powdered sugar, Cool Whip or store bought icing. You can also leave the cake as it, with no frosting, for a lighter dessert. You can also turn this cake into a poke cake by poking holes into the finished cake and pouring sweetened condensed milk into the holes, similar to this Chocolate Ganache Berry Poke Cake.

If you are looking for a more traditional strawberry cake, you will love Strawberry Bundt Cake.

What Does Strawberry Soda Cake Taste Like

Sprite has a citrusy taste and that complements the taste os the strawberry cake very well. The cake will taste like strawberry cake with a little bit of citrus. While this cake does have a sweetness, it is not overly sweet like some cakes can taste. Unlike some cake mix cakes, this cake is light and fluffy.

How to Store 2 Ingredients Cake

Once you have made this cake and it has cooled, you can wrap the cake pan with plastic wrap. You can also cover it with a lid. You want to make sure the cake is protected from the air, whether you keep it in the cake pan or you slice it and put it in an airtight container. This will keep the cake fresh and prevent it from going stale. This cake is best stored at room temperature to maintain the moist texture.

Can Cake Made with Soda Be Frozen

When you have more cake than you can eat before it goes bad, you can freeze it. I like to cut the cake into pieces before freezing it because then we can take a slice or 2 out at a time without having to thaw all of the cake. Wrap the cake well and put it in freezer bags before moving it to the freezer

    I started making cakes about 15 years ago. We’d demonstrate in microwave with the microwavable Tupperware. My first was a chocolate cake with Cherry Coke. Moist. Light. Perfect!

    1. Hi Stacy. I haven’t tried that but I don’t think it would have the same effect. You could however replace the water in the boxed cake mix instructions with milk.

  2. This sounded so good I did it! I baked mine in 2 loaf pans but it sank in the middle. Wouldnt win a beauty contest but It was tasty & moist.
    Thanks for ideas! Plan to try others.

    1. I have made many different flavors of cake using this method. My husband is allergic to eggs so finding this hack as a godsend!

    1. We don’t think it’s overload, but feel free to use Sprite instead if you prefer.
