This is such a great trick…replace the eggs, oil, and water that you normally add to a cake mix, with 12 ounces of your favorite soda! When I first heard this I thought it sounded totally gross…then I was intrigued, then I thought…I have to try this!! Best. Decision. Ever. I used a grapefruit soda – but I think that gingerale would be yummy too!
Stupidly Easy Grapefruit Cake!
- 1 box White Cake Mix (I like Duncan Hines...but use your own favorite!)
- 12oz Grapefruit Soda (I use Trader Joe's Italian Grapefruit Soda)
- 1/2 cup Grapefruit Segments (This is optional...but I find it to be yummy! I use the Del Monte jarred grapefruit segments - but you can go fresh if you want!)
The 1/2 cup measurement for the grapefruit segments is approximate - you can do more or less to taste. I usually set my timer for a bit less than the recommended baking time, and then check frequently during the last minutes of baking...don't want to overcook it!
I recommend a whipped cream frosting for this cake!
