Diet Soda Chocolate Cake

Yes you read that correctly!! :)  Some of you know I tried these black bean brownies because I have been trying to find low calorie sweets to bake! They we're not a hit! lol.  Mike swears he had bean skin on his tooth! LOL! I won't be making those again but they got wicked good reviews so you can't blame me for giving them a try! They weren't very sweet but kind of resembled little debbie brownies.  Real moist and dense!! Anyways, I went back searching Gina's weight watcher site and came across diet soda cake.  She said you can use ANY box cake mix with ANY flavor diet soda.  I just had diet cream soda on hand and a box of chocolate cake mix! It also has 2 egg whites to make it fluffy.  This cake was moist and fluffy and it doesn't taste low calorie at all! My neighbor who is a chocolate lover had no idea it was made with diet soda until I told him and he was shocked! This one is definitely a keeper! I put half a cup semi sweet chocolate chips and divided the batter between two 9 inch rounds. Enjoy!

Yum! I'm adding this to my list of 'must try' recipes. I recently saw a recipe on the food network where a chef used soda when making a pork roast. Who knew! :)
