Coca Cola Cake

Don't forget to enter my giveaway here!!

Have you ever had Cracker Barrel's Coca Cola Cake? We don't eat at Cracker Barrel a lot but when we do, it's for breakfast. Usually I don't eat cake for breakfast, notice I said usually. There's quite a few copy cat recipes for this cake. When I found this recipe, using diet coke and a low fat cream cheese frosting, I couldn't pass it up.

I was skeptical, just cake mix, coke and two egg whites? Would it rise or cook properly? Don't be skeptical. This cake is so good. It is so moist and the frosting is delicious. I am looking forward to trying some of the other versions of this cake.

Diet Coke Cake
Recipe adapted from Erin of grin and bake It

1 box of chocolate cake mix
1 can Diet Coke
2 egg whites

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Bake according to the directions on the cake box. Makes 24.

Flavor Variations

Chocolate cake mix and Diet Coke
Spice cake and diet root beer
Vanilla cake mix and diet root beer
Pineapple cake mix and 7 Up
Vanilla cake mix and 7Up
Vanilla cake mix and diet orange

Low Fat Cream Cheese Frosting

8 oz. light cream cheese, softened
1 c. marshmallow cream
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. powdered sugar

In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese, marshmallow creme, lemon juice and vanilla until well combined. Then gradually beat in the powdered sugar.

Makes 1 3/4 cups

NOTES: The use of marshmallow creme instead of butter in this easy frosting recipe keeps the fat, calorie and cholesterol counts low. To simplify clean-up, spray the measuring cup with non-stick spray before attempting to measure out the marshmallow cream!

  2. I've heard that this is really good, but I've never tried it. Thanks for the idea!

  3. I made this a long time ago. Ah Cracker Barrel...we need to visit that place again. We don't go often and I love their gift shop!

  4. I have always wondered about this cake. It looks so delicious and incredibly moist. Will have to give it a try soon.

  5. I have seen this but never tried it Julie. It sounds divine and I'm so glad to now have the recipe. Thanks very much!

  6. It's a great cake, which surprised me the first time I made it! Yours looks so good!

  7. Those variations have my head spinning! I'm thinking the white cake with root beer sounds intriguing....

  8. We don't have any Cracker Barrels around us that I'm aware of so I've never had their cake but this does sound like a wonderful recipe, especially with the lower calories!

    What's not to like about moist and delicious!

  9. I've totally heard of doing this before but never really believed that it would turn out well! Looks great!

  10. This has always been a go-to favorite of my daughter and myself as we lay around on a Sunday afternoon wondering what to bake. So simple... but sooo good!

  11. New recipe for me and so easy! We don't have that restaurant in my corner, but it sounds great.
