This is a great cake recipe for those that are dieting… probably the oldest recipe in the book, but I just love it! Lots of variations with cake batters and cokes that you can mix, but this one is my favorite since I love chocolate cake and Diet Cherry Coke!
1 (18 ounce) devil food chocolate cake mix
1 (12 ounce) can Diet Cherry Coke (you can substitute for your coke of choice)
¾ cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
1 (8 ounce) container of cool whip (or you can whip up your own whip cream but this is a "lighter" version)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease a 9x13 pan (you can use a cupcake tin as well)
Combine cake mix, Diet Cherry Coke and chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl. Mix on low to medium speed until all ingredients are combined.
You will be tempted to add the eggs and oil… DON’T… it’s a simple cake with amazing results with just the Diet Coke!!
Pour the batter into a 9x13 pan. VERY IMPORTANT: Bake 5 minutes less than the recommended time indicated on the box, otherwise, the cake will dry out. Cake is done when a fork or toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
When cooled, frost with Cool Whip topping. Garnish with fresh mint or cherries! Enjoy!
