An odd trick I learned, I thought they wre crazy when they told me this but.........If you want to bake a cake you can replace the eggs,oil,milk and/or water with soda!!! Yep one can of soda! If you are making like a vanilla or fruit flavored cake use a can of sprite or 7 up (light in color) for dark cakes like chocolate use a can of coke,pepsi whatever (dark soda)

It works the only difference is in the texture it doesn't rise as much and get as fluffy but the taste is the same!! :thumbsup:
