Why is this a 'diet' cake? Looks good! I can see you sprinkled powdered sugar on it instead of ooooey gooooey frosting...that's a good start. What else did you do to make it diet...apple sauce instead of oil?

There's a thread about this somewhere but I'll be darned if I can find it....

All it is is any chocolate cake mix and one 12 oz can of diet Dr. Pepper.....that's it!

The Diet Cake thread is not in The Cat Lounge it's in the PL, but basically it's just a cake mix with a can of diet soda in it and that's all and you bake as directed but do not put any other ingredients in it, and I made it with a Diet Dr. Pepper and it was delicious!

Looks yummy!

Does it have to be Dr Pepper?

Nope whatever you want, but the 'darker' sodas seemingly work better with chocolate mix. I made mine with Diet Coke

So just cake mix and and cola type pop? No eggs, oil or anything like that? Does the cake taste like the dr pepper or Diet coke?

Just the cake mix and stir in a regular sized can of Diet Pop and pour into muffin tins or a cake tin.

It just tastes like cake. I couldn't taste the pop at all and I know a few others who tried said the same thing. The taste is slightly different, I also found it slightly more moist

If it tastes as good as it look, you have a winner there.

it is more moist....and kinda spongy. It ends up being only 3 WW points for a large piece. If you want to save more calories, eat it with no icing (you don't really need it, the cake is that good) add a dallop of fat free cool whip!

That's so weird...my mom was just asking me about this yesterday. I Never heard of it.

I remember the applesauce substitute...but the brownies tasted like chocolate applesauce.

Has anyone tried it with Diet cola made with Splenda? I can't drink regular diet pop because Aspartame (the main sweetener) gives me all kinds of problems, including headaches.

I have a low-fat lemon cake recipe (it's so yummy and moist, that not only did my brother eat a HUGE piece, each of his children had at least two pieces) that a friend gave me a while back. If anyone wants it, pm me and I'll send it when I get home to my recipe book.
