Debbie's Story

I adapted this from a soda cake recipe I read online...I liked the idea of not having to add eggs and oil, but still have a great tasting, moist cake for an event I was attending...Everyone loved the cupcakes and wanted the recipe. My mother in law said it was one of the best lime flavored things she had ever eaten and I could bring her some anytime I made it again...


10 oz
1 box
lemon cake mix
6 Tbsp
lime juice-divided
2 c
powdered sugar-divided
1 c
marshmallow fluff or marshmallow creme
4 oz
cream cheese-softened

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine cake mix with the Sprite and 2 tablespoons of Lime juice. Fill cupcake liners about 2/3 full of mixture and bake at 350% for approx. 18 minutes, depending on your oven, it can take a few minutes more or less, toothpick comes clean.
Mix 1 cup of the powered sugar with 2 tablespoons of lime juice, you want a slightly thick syrup consistency, a bit more of the lime juice can be added to achieve this.
As the cupcakes get done, brush the tops of each, while warm with the lime juice-powdered sugar syrup, I brush each at least twice.
Beat the cream cheese to a smooth texture, add the remaining lime-powdered sugar syrup, add the 1 cup of powdered sugar and any remaining lime juice until well blended, fold in the marshmallow fluff, frost the cooled cupcakes. This can also be made into a 13x9 sheet cake or two 8x8 square pans. I recommend chilling anything larger than cupcakes to make slicing easier. This cake is very moist, but can be crumbly. Tastes great.

    Yes...I like that idea too! Would this work with other flavors of cake mixes and sodas?

    I am sure it will...I am going to try some variations, like chocolate cake mix with either coca cola or a black cherry soda...
