Great idea...but you should use real soda or club soda/seltzer water so that you don't get all the artificial sweeteners. You could also use soda with real sugar, not high fructose corn syrup. It would kind of defeat the purpose of it being low calorie, but you could do that for special -special occasions ;) item not reviewed by moderator and published

Just saw Sunny Anderson do this on Rachael Ray. Looked delish! Long ago someone made this and I now recall it was do good! Has anyone tried this with Bob's Mill gluten free chocolate cake mix? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I use 1/4 cup applesauce as a bonding and moisture agent in the mix. If you don't add something else to it, the cake is very messy &amp; crumbly. I use regular 7Up, instead of diet. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Okay so my mom told me about this cake and i must say...i love eat raw cake batter (i know its a no-no) but when i made it with the diet soda it tasted just as good raw as it did with eggs and oil...i am in love!!!! p.s. I did betty crockers super moist yellow cake + sprite zero item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is extremely unsafe! Diet soda/artificial sweeteners should NOT be heated up. The aspartame can start to turn into formaldehyde and slowly poison and KILL you! Those of you thinking about trying this, please don't! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I&amp;#39;ve been seeing this Diet Soda Cake all over the internet lately. I am currently doing Weight Watchers, with a good amount of success, but miss sweets. So I decided to try this out. Instead of diet soda, I used seltzer water to avoid the aspartame. I should also say that I am not a huge fan of boxed cake mixes and have never much cared for their flavor. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by the texture of the cake, which came out very light and fluffy. But the taste is just not good. It tastes really artificial and I could barely finish one cupcake. I&amp;#39;m still intrigued by the idea, though, and might try using seltzer water in a from scratch cake. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I first find out about this at Weight Watchers about 25 years ago. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This cake was tasty and I reduced the amount of soda because my cake mix package was a little smaller. I mixed devil's food cake and Dr. Pepper 10. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tried this today using chocolate cake mix and diet coke, Great taste, very light. I noticed that the recipe calls for a box of cake mix 18.25oz. I did notice not all cake mixes were 18.25 oz. This may be the reason one posters cake cut messy. I will never make a cake using eggs and oil again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

It said soda not seltzer water. Follow the directions and then complain. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Seltzer would taste like alkasltzer. Uck!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sounds like a pretty good idea! I try to avoid artificial sweeteners, too. Bob Kluver: I think she meant that it tasted artificial because it's BOXED CAKE MIX, which has so much more artificial stuff than real cake! item not reviewed by moderator and published
