Did you know that you can make a perfectly moist cake with just these two ingredients?
Yes, I know! I caught on to this trick last summer. Don't ask me how, but it works! A boxed cake mix and a 12-ounce can of soda makes perfectly moist cake. Wonders will never cease to amaze me. And it works for other types of cake too: orange cake with Sunkist, Chocolate Cake with Coke, Vanilla cake with Sprite. Oh and brownies, but that's a whole other story.
My parents were just as amazed when I made this cake for them. The cake itself is very moist and the glaze soaks right into the hot cake, making for a perfectly sweet and delicious lemon cake.
2-Ingredient Lemon Cake with Condensed Milk Glaze
For the cake
1 box of lemon cake mix (just the mix, no eggs or oil)
1-12 ounce can of lemon-lime soda
For the glaze
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk (half of the 14 oz. can)
3/4 stick butter
1/2 cup sugar
Preheat the oven to 350* and spray a 13" x 9" baking pan with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, combine the dry cake mix and the soda. Mix well. Bake the cake for 20-22 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, combine the sweetened condensed milk, butter, and sugar. Increase the heat to high and boil for two minutes, stirring constantly. Pour the icing/glaze over the cake while the cake is still warm.
