My chocolate cola cupcakes came out so well that I decided to try new variations. This white cake and cream soda version reminded me of angel food cake, but was a lot less work. I baked this in a 9 x 13 pan but I think I’ll try the ring pan or my bundt pan next time.

Almost Angel Food Cake
There are several versions of cake or cupcakes with pop as an ingredient online but, given the ingredients, I suspect this Betty Crocker version is the original: https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/two-ingredient-soda-pop-cupcakes/3cbb154a-60b4-4250-bc2a-70909d1b924a. And with only two ingredients, it doesn’t get much simpler.
However, some of the reviews said the resulting cupcakes were dry and crumbly. When I read the back of the box, I realized that the liquid from the pop that was going in was a lesser volume than the liquid being left out (eggs, oil, water). So I put two of the eggs back in when I tried the recipe and the result was moist and luscious.
1 box Betty Crocker white cake mix (the size that makes a 13 x 9 cake)
1 ½ cups cream soda
Combine ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until smooth. Pour into cake pan(s) of desired size. Bake according to directions on the cake mix box, using the longer time.
