Super Eazy, No Fuss, Just Fizzy

Sprite Cake

I went for something a little easier after last week’s colorful cake casualty. This one is an enhanced box mix recipe and uses Sprite and pudding mix to pump it up. You know… there must be something wrong with the universe when a box mix cake comes out better than one I made from scratch. But I won’t complain too much because it was really good and oh so moist inside. See……

Sprite Cake

Simple Sprite Cake

1 white cake mix
4 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 box instant vanilla pudding (3 oz. size)
8 oz. can of Sprite (the mini one)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease and flour two 9 inch cake pans.
  • Mix ingredients on low until combined and then increase speed to medium and mix for about 2 minutes.
  • Pour batter into pans and bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Recipe amended from here.

Make it simple all the way and tear open a can of vanilla ready-made frosting… (don’t worry I won’t tell) or you can use this really easy frosting recipe:

Buttercream Frosting
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1b. 10X powdered sugar
1-3 teaspoons milk, half and half or cream

  • Using a mixer, cream softened butter and vanilla with until smooth.
  • Add sugar gradually, allowing butter and sugar to cream together before adding more.
  • If you want it a little creamier, add a teaspoon of milk at a time and beat on high until you get the right texture.

Delicious!! I used this recipe as cupcakes for my son’s 2nd birthday party, but used strawberry cake mix and strawberry soda. I topped it with a home made cream cheese frosting. It was a hit!!

Can you mix all the ingredients by hand? I’m planning on making cupcakes out of this for my baby shower next weekend and love sprite so finding this was very exciting :)

In process of making this recipe now, I can tell from the smell of the cake that’s its going to be a winner. I did buy store bought icing. Will make it from scratch next time. You are awesome bakerella! You continue not to lead us wrong with your recipes.
