For those of you who can do gluten, this is a super simple, quick to whip up cake that even non-allergic people enjoy. It's really a non-recipe kind of recipe. Ready?
Simple Birthday Cake
1 box safe cake mix
1 can soda pop or carbonated beverage of choice
Preheat oven. This is important, because the cake goes together super fast, and needs to go straight into the oven. Pour dry cake mix into a large bowl. Pour soda on top. Mix until blended. Pour into well greased pan and bake according to instructions on box. That's it.
This does make a very soft cake, which does not hold up quite well enough to make it a layer cake, and it will stick a little to your cupcake wrapper. But it is yummy, and easy, and the kids don't mind licking the wrapper to get every last bite.
We have had great flavor with Fanta orange soda, 7-up and Sprite. Coke was ok, and Dr. Pepper was kinda strange. Be bold. Try any flavor. It might surprise you.
I'm working on a slightly improved version of this simple cake, and I'll let you know when I have it down. So far the preliminary trial looks AMAZING. I hope to share soon.
