7-Up Cake?

Written by teachergirl40 (carol) on 2/3/2012 8:24 PM | COMMENTS (19)

I found this recipe online on www.pintrest.com and thought it sounded pretty cool. I wonder how I've never heard of this!

From Pintrest:

"Ladies, this is BIG! I have stumbled onto a gold mine! This recipe is 3 ingredients and 1.5 weight watchers points a piece! 1 box lemon cake mix...mix with one 20 oz bottle of diet 7-up. Bake at 350 for 30 min in 9x13 pan. Cool and top with one tub of light cool whip. The entire cake is 19 weight watcher points and it is divine! When you just have to have something sweet to eat! "

Anyone ever try it? Let me know. I plan to give it a try soon. :)

NOTE: I did some additional "research" online and found similar recipes that use other flavors of cake mix and diet Coke or diet Sprite.

    It makes 24 cupcakes (instead of the cake) at 2 PointsPlus each. I made it last night for today's Easter dinner dessert and it is quite good. I used yellow cake mix, didn't use three ingredients but two. Cake mix and 20ozs of diet Sprite, that's all. Then I served it with Fat Free Cool Whip. You can't beat that for two points. This recipe has been around for years and years. So glad to hear someone just discovered it and is so happy. I;m with you!

    If you make with Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme cake and diet soda, then cut into 24 pieces, each piece will be ~3 points. So maybe if you split into 48 tiny pieces it comes out to 1.5??? Most people would eat two pieces if they're that small anyway, so you might as well count it as 3 points.

    I would love to know how it comes out to 1.5 points. I have tried every brand of cake mix and it adds up to 4 points for just the cake mix. No frosting or cool whip. WTH????

    I know this is an older post, but I just restarted WW and remembered this recipe. I don't get how the points are just 1.5, though. Perhaps my cake mix is the wrong kind. I have Betty Crocker Super Moist Lemon. When I put it into the points calculator it comes up with 4 points+ per serving times 10 servings would be 40 points for the whole cake. Any advice on what brand is 1.5 points per serving? Thanks!

    I actually think it's better with only 16 oz. of Diet 7 Up.

    I have tried it with lemon cake mix, white cake mix and strawberry cake mix. It is amazing. Add some fruit (without sugar) and it is a guilt free wonderful answer to your sweet tooth.

    Is it 1.5 plus points or the old system of points?

    I made a "Pop Cake" with yellow cake, diet orange soda, mandarin oranges, pineapple chunks, and topped it with Cool Whip Free for my husband's birthday. He ate all but the ONE piece I had!! Good stuff!

    I've heard this works but when I tried making it once about a year ago, it came out really flat in the pan and extremely sticky... I wonder if I used the wrong type of soda... anyone know if this works with diet soda? I love the sound of bellamomma52's angel food + pineapple cake too! I'm getting hungry for some sweets!

    A friend of my mothers used to make this - but from scratch. I haven't used a box cake mix since I was in jr. high school, but I am going to see if I can recreate it from scratch. Thanks for the suggestion - I am always looking for low point sweet treats!

    Sounds wonderful! Never tried any yet.. I'd make mine into cup cakes. When it's in a 9x13 pan I have a way of slipping by and taking bites, then trying to even the line out... next thing I know half the cake is gone but low and behold there is a perfectly straight cut line hahaha Enjoy & let us know how it turned out!

    This sounds really good!!! Maybe I'll try it after WI day on Sunday. :) I have to be careful with cake I could rationalize my way into half the cake...it's only 9.5 points.

    We made one last week with yellow cake mix and diet cherry soda..very good :) also years ago one of the best WW recipes was a box of angel food cake mix with a large can of crushed pineapple in its own juice..mix the 2 together and the cake is baked just like the one you did..for extra flavor you can add a pinch of your favorite extract & or some flaked coconut! try it..you'll like it..xoxo Janet

    I added 1 egg or 2 egg whites otherwise it falls apart. You can do just about any combination of mix and diet soda you can think of. I liked devils food and diet cherry dr.pepper.
