This 2 ingredient strawberry cake is amazing and so easy to make! It’s egg free, moist, and lower in calories, but you won’t miss a thing.
I love easy desserts and just recipes in general, that is where this 2 ingredient strawberry cake comes into play. You know when you are planning on baking something but realize you are out of eggs (or can’t eat eggs), or you’re supposed to bring a treat to this afternoon’s potluck and you have less than an hour to do it in. Well this cake is perfect for that, or to make just because. It’s super moist, has fewer calories since you need no eggs or oil to make it, and if you use a light version of everything you can really call it a skinny cake! It reminds me of the strawberry cake in a mug we make pretty often, just in a larger form so you can share. 😉 (affiliate links present)
Want to know what’s in it?
It’s not brand or even flavor specific. Meaning you could use Sprite or 7 up, and even use chocolate cake instead of strawberry if you’d rather. I have to tell you I was a bit skeptical when my friend mentioned she had made this and it was pretty good, so I had to try it myself. It’s not as though I am necessarily watching my weight, but if I could have a bit more…..I’d be down with that. 😉 Use a 13×9 pan or a I prefer using a pretty bundt pan for cakes myself.
You could use a lot of different frostings for this 2 ingredient strawberry cake too.
- Melt a tub of ready made frosting and pour it on
- Mix powdered sugar and water and pour that “frosting”/ glaze on
- Use whipped topping (light or regular, like I did)
- 1 can Lemon Lime soda 12 oz.
- 1 box cake mix
- 1 tub whipped topping optional
- sliced fruit to top optional
Add cake mix and soda in a bowl. Use a mixer on low to mix and make sure no lumps are left. Spray bundt pan or cake pan with non stick spray and pour cake mixture in. Set oven to time on cake box (ours was 350) and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until cake springs back when touched in the middle.
I will say it a bit more dense than a traditional cake with egg and oil but it is a very slight difference in our opinion (asked kids too). Garnished with some fresh fruits it is really a pretty cake and perfect for picnics, barbecues, and especially during the Summer when there are tons of fruits to choose from! Use lemon cake mix and make a tropical version with coconut sprinkled on top and pineapple tidbits.
