The Ultimate Baking Hack

? Have your cake and eat it too! ?

This one is an oldie but a goodie. Take your favorite cake mix, and instead of the usual eggs and oil or butter, simply use diet soda instead! If it sounds crazy, well, that’s because it is. But somehow it works. I don’t know the science behind it and I won’t pretend to, but I can vouch for the taste test, and this truly works.

If you’re in the boat that believes diet soda is evil, then I suggest not trying this. But if you are trying to reduce your calories, or specifically watching your fat intake, this little hack will definitely help. If you want to try this, stick with the rule of thumb that your cake mix and soda should match. So for chocolate, use a darker soda like coke. For vanilla, use a light soda like 7 Up.
