Two Ingredient Strawberry Cupcakes

DSCN0231-1

I saw this gorgeous cake on Pinterest and if I could have gone through the monitor for just one bite I would have! You can see the beautiful photo if you go to the blog Lady With The Red Rocker.


I've seen recipes like this using a variety of different boxed cake mixes and just a can of diet cola. I've always wanted to try making cupcakes using this method. 


I picked up my ingredients last week, but only got around to making these cupcakes this past weekend. Of course I neglected to buy diet 7-UP! I never drink pop and if I do I never drink diet. I've never been able to develop a taste for it. Yes, I still call it pop instead of soda. I grew up calling it that and I guess you can't teach an old dog new tricks!

My cupcakes may not look as pretty as the cake, but they taste pretty darn good! I'd definitely make these again. While out and about today I picked up a boxed spice cake mix. I think I saw a recipe for muffins using that and a can of pumpkin. That's the next combination I'm going to try.

1 box strawberry cake mix
12 oz diet 7-UP (or regular)


Combine the cake mix and the 7-UP in bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well blended. I baked it at 325° like she suggested. They were done when a cake tester came out clean. I also frosted them with light Cool Whip.
