Sprite cupcakes

September 24, 2009 by  

I found this one at church last night. Elijah is allergic to eggs, milk, and peanuts. He can have the duncan hines moist deluxe. One of my deacons said he makes cupcakes by adding a can of diet sprite to his mix-thats it! I will try it and let you know what I think!

    This recipe is floating aroung recently under different variations. I have also heard it with a can (12 oz) of 7-up or 16 oz bottle of (Northerners will know) Faygo soda any variety. My mom recently made a yellow cake with 16 oz of IBC Cream Soda. I had also tried a chocolate cake with a can of Vernors Ginger Ale (again Northerners will know). Both cakes were very moist and sweet. The consistency is almost brownie like and the cakes do not rise like a regular cake. Those of us not cooking with egg have had many cakes not rise well. I have done better with made from scratch cakes. We did enjoy the soda cakes though.

    We have three girls, two are allergic to peanuts, two are allergic to eggs, and one is allergic to milk. We have found the Egg Replacer seems to work when baking. It does make the cakes and pancakes a little more fragile. They tend to fall apart very easily. Other than that, there is no difference in the taste. We have used it for a while now.

    I tried this today and I don’t think I’m ever going to go back! I used chocolate cake mix, 12 ounces of DIET GINGER ALE, 3 tsp of ENER-G egg replacer and 4 tablespoons of warm water.
    The trick to this cake is getting the most foam into the batter- I made up my egg replacer with warm water and whisked until foamy, I then added the gingerale to this and got even more foam. I beat with my electric mixer quickly. I noticed that it looks like cake batter made with egg and even better- the cupcakes rose, and they don’t fall apart when you are eating them.
    Thanks Candice for suggesting this- I’m so excited that I have real cake back!
