2 Ingredient Strawberry Cake

This 2 ingredient strawberry cake is amazing and so easy to make! It’s an egg free dessert and super moist, plus it’s lower in calories however you won’t miss a thing because this cake is delicious! Some call it soda pop 2 ingredient cake but I call it a throw together dump dessert that everyone raves about when they taste it!

2 ingredient strawberry cake

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 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. (originally published 4/17)

Believe it or not this comes out super moist. There are a lot fewer calories since you need no eggs or oil to make it. If you use a light version of everything you can really call it a skinny cake!

  • This 2 ingredient cake reminds me of the strawberry cake in a mug we make pretty often, just in a larger form so you can share. 😉
  • A great thing about this soda cake recipe is you can use any flavor or brand you like!

Easy strawberry cake

  1. Box of cake mix – I like this one
  2. A 13×9″ pan or a I prefer using a pretty bundt cake pan for cakes myself
  3. Can of soda
    1. we used lemon lime but if you could find strawberry soda that would be even better
    2. people have asked about club soda, I haven’t used it but it wouldn’t be very sweet

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. 😉

Frosting options are:

  1. Melt a tub of ready made frosting and pour it on with a sprinkle of chocolate chips
  2. Mix powdered sugar and water and pour that “frosting”/ glaze on
  3. Use whipped topping (light or regular, like I did)

Soda Pop cake

  • Just Chocolate cake mix + chocolate soda
  • Chocolate cake mix + Coke (I did this and made peanut butter filled cupcakes in jars with it)
  • Lemon or yellow cake mix + lemon lime soda
  • Spice cake mix + ginger ale with whipped cream on top
  • Another quickie under 30 minutes – Angel food cake mix and crushed pineapple we call pineapple angel food cake – that’s fat free

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 pineapple cake mix and make a tropical cake with coconut sprinkled on top and pineapple tidbits. All you do is combine cake mix with liquid, pour in prepared cake pan and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Here is what our final product looked like and how we decorated it. I mean that part is totally up to you. If you put it on a cooling rack right out of the oven you could melt frosting and pour that on top.

Let it harden just a bit, slice and serve with ice cream on top. I have a printable recipe card at the bottom of this post with nutritional information listed according to what we used.

Time needed: 30 minutes.

2 Ingredient Cake

  1. Prepare

    Add cake mix and your soda pop in a large bowl.  It is best to use a mixer on low to mix and make sure no lumps are left. 

    Spray the inside of your bundt pan or cake pan with non stick spray and pour cake mixture in.  Set oven to time on cake box (ours was 350).

  2. Bake

    Now bake for approximately 30 minutes or until cake springs back when touched in the middle.

  3. Decorate

    Allow it to cool. Put a cake plate on top and quickly flip it over. Use a defrosted tub of whipped topping to coat the top and lay fruit on top of that. Chocolate bits or sprinkles are nice options as well.

I use a strawberry cake mix and Fanta strawberry pop to make cupcakes. They fell in the middle and stuck to the cupcake liners . They taste great, but what can be done about the other two issues.... use oil in the mixture? Spraying the liners sounds messy, but that may help?

Trying it now with a pineapple Supreme mix and half a pineapple soda with plain seltzer the rest. Wish me luck

Would soda stream sodas work?? What about a homemade cake mix??

They should both be fine using the same measurements

Is the cake going to be moist. Somewhat skeptical about it. Will it have good taste without eggs and butter?

Hey Justine, thanks for all your wonderful recipes! Can these oven cake recipes be cooked in the instant pot? If so, does the recipe have to change or just using the method for instant pot? If it would be fairly simple would you explain? Either here or to my email. This way I could have these wonderful deserts without the oven. Thank you!

Best cake I have made in the IP was a coffee cake. You can search Instant Pot coffee cake on my site and try that. Just note that others will take on a very different, more dense texture
