Incorporating soda into cake batter is a quick way to add flavor and replace other wet ingredients if you don’t have them on hand. For vegans, soda can replace eggs in a cake mix recipe. It can also lower the fat content of a cake by replacing oil as well. The carbonation in soda imparts lightness to the cake and many different flavor combinations can be achieved with a little creativity. Perhaps the simplest way to bake a cake with soda is to use a cake mix. This method limits your ingredient list to two common items found in many kitchens and will have a dessert on your table in less than one hour.
