Testing the 2 ingredient cake in a 6 inch Fat Daddios Pan

Happy February my readers in 2021!

I have been super busy with baking and I can’t wait to show you all what I have tested, tasted and tried. 


I was recently surfing YouTube for a 7 UP Cake recipe because they are so delicious and I wanted to bake one. I then ran across a 2 ingredient cake mix hack. This has been out since the 50’s but it’s my first time hearing about it so I wanted to give it a go. 


For this super easy 7UP cake, all you need is a yellow cake mix or white cake mix box and add 12 ounces of 7UP to it and mix it, then pour it in a cake pan and bake according to cooking times.


I baked my cake in a 6x4 inch deep Fat Daddios pan at 350 degrees for 45 min and it came out great.

For this type of pan, I sprayed it lightly with Bakers Joy spray and lined it with a 6 inch parchment paper on the bottom and sprayed it lightly too so that the cake would pop out easily and it did.

Now for the glaze, I searched online and tried one that only contained 2 ingredients as well and they were 1 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of 7UP. There was another variation I tried that consisted of lemon juice, vanilla and powdered sugar by 7UP’s website but it tasted really weird.

So, I scrapped it and went for the 2 ingredient found here https://divascancook.com/7-up-pound-cake-recipe-glazed-homemade/ 

plus a homemade 7UP cake is attached to the recipe which I may try at a later time.

Here are the results.


As for my soda cake, It was very soft, scrumptious and moist and it looked great with that drizzled glaze on top. My daughter and hubby loved the taste but I wasn’t too sold on the taste probably because I really like the ones I have purchased at Aldi’s or where ever they are sold.  This bad boy here! LOL

All in all it's not that bad but definitely an acquired taste so you would have to be your own critic or taste tester. The good thing it’s not overpowering with sweetness. I'm thinking from scratch will be best.:)

So, have you tried this type of cake hack before with 7 UP or other sodas? If so what are your thoughts on it?
