Diet Coke Cupcakes With Vanilla Glaze

Yes, seriously, Diet Coke. And no, you can’t taste it whatsoever.

I went back to Weight Watchers (about ten pounds from goal!) a few weeks ago and have since heard a zillion people gushing about these cupcakes and decided I had to give them a try. And well, they’re not too bad. Definitely a different texture than cupcakes with the regular ingredients, but nothing to complain about.

If I ever find myself with a major cupcake craving, I might make them again. Of course, they’re not as good as the real thing.

Cake Ingredients
1 box cake mix
1 egg white
1 can Diet Coke

Cake Preparation
Remember, you are substituting the Diet Coke and egg white for the ingredients the box mix calls for–do not add the eggs, oil, etc.

  1. Preheat oven as directed on box.
  2. Beat cake mix, egg white, and one can of Diet Coke.
  3. Fill lined cupcake trays.
  4. Bake as directed on box. (I set the timer for a couple minutes less and checked on them. They were done.)
  5. Remove cupcakes from tray and let cool.
  6. Drizzle glaze over cupcakes, allow glaze to set.

Glaze Ingredients
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Glaze Preparation
Mix powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. If glaze is too thick, add more milk.

Note: If you’re using a white or yellow mix, use Diet 7-Up or another clear diet soda.
