Three Ingredient Cake

As promised, here is the recipe for my Three Ingredient Cake.

This fabulously easy cake is delicious and moist, and it's lowfat too!  Forget the oil and eggs.  You won't miss them, I promise!
This recipe was inspired by Lady with the Red Rocker's 2 Ingredient cake (which, by the way, is super delish).

The 2 ingredient cake bakes up very light and fluffy...yum!
But, sometimes I like to build and stack and sculpt my special birthday cakes, and I love using fondant.  So fluffy doesn't always work.  I need a cake with a bit more structure.  Denser, but in a moist, scrumptious kind of way.
Well, this recipe is the perfect trifecta...Delicious, Sturdy and So EASY!
And it has a killer secret ingredient...

For Zack's Lego birthday cake I chose Yellow cake with vanilla & lemon-lime flavor.

I filled it with Cherry preserves and iced with cream cheese frosting.

Are you ready for the secret?

"Lemon-lime" flavor is secret code for Diet Sprite!
Intriguing...soda in cake.  In the 2 ingredient cake that's all there is.  Cake mix and soda.  Light, fluffy, joyful!

In the Three Ingredient Cake: Cake mix, Soda and Yogurt (preferably rich, creamy, fat free, greek)

So, here's the general recipe:
1 box your favorite cake mix
8 ounces soda (whatever flavor sounds yummy with your cake mix)
6 ounces yogurt (nonfat or lowfat Greek - again, whatever flavor is appealing to you)

Mix together with electric mixer for 2 minutes.  Bake using the instructions on the box.  Frost and decorate.
For Zack's cake, I used:
1 box Yellow cake mix
8 oz Diet Sprite
6 oz Chobani nonfat greek yogurt
Mix.  Bake.  Decorate.  Prepare yourself for the compliments. ENJOY!

  5. I've heard of adding a package of instant jello to moisten a cake but I'll have to give the soda and yogurt a try... healthier is always better. :)
