With the high cost of everything right now (especially eggs) desserts that require many ingredients seem like they are completely out of our budgets.

Well, I am about a to change the game when it comes to desserts!

This Mountain Dew Soda Cake is made using just 2 main ingredients and it couldn’t be any easier to make.

I did end up topping the cake with some frosting and coconut shreds for added flavor but those ingredients are totally optional.

So, if you love Mtn Dew as much as we do, you are going to love this cake!

Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance can I make this?
You can make this 2-3 days in advance and keep it covered in the fridge.

Can I use regular food coloring?
You can use regular food coloring but I prefer gel food coloring. It mixes easier and gives a brighter and more consistent coloring.

Can I use any flavor of Mtn Dew?
Yes! You can certainly use any flavor of Mtn Dew including Diet Mtn Dew. Just keep in mind, the flavored Mtn Dews like Code Red or Baja Blast may alter the flavor and color of the cake.

What toppings can I use for this cake?
If you don’t want to use frosting or the coconut flakes, you can simply serve it plain or use whipped cream or a dollop of cool-whip on top.

Using a cakemix is not a proper recipe! A cakemix contains more than one incredient making this recipe not a 2-ingredient recipe. I was really disappointed.

Marthe, I'm sorry you were disappointed. During this difficult time, people are looking for inexpensive ways to make their favorite foods such as cake. This truly is a 2-ingredient cake as the cake mix does not require any other ingredients besides the can of Mtn Dew. I also clarified that the other ingredients such as the frosting and toppings are optional. Hope that helps!
