while we're on the subject of cupcakes...

...i would like to tell you about one of my most favorite things ever.

it's the Diet Coke Cupcake.

wait! stop! stop what you're thinking. they really are awesome. they don't taste like diet coke. they taste like moist little yummies. trust me.

this is how you make them.

take one box of chocolate cake mix. (can be any brand.)

and take one can of diet coke.

and that's it. that's all you need!

preheat the oven as directed on the cake mix box. grease the pan and yada yada.

pour the cake mix into a bowl. add diet coke. stir.

do not add anything else that the box calls for. do not add water. do not add eggs. do not add oil. don't add anything. just combine the diet coke with the mix.

when the batter is smooth, pour it into your cupcake liners.

bake as directed on the box.

when they're done they're done! frost with whatever you like.

(here are some i made last year. please note...if you're using vanilla cake mix, substitute diet sprite for diet coke.)

this is an old Weight Watchers recipe, but honestly, i don't make them because i'm counting Points. i make them because it's super easy this way and super yummy.

let me know if you try them!

Wow - what an amazing recipe! I will have to try this in the near future. I've never ever heard of this but it sounds yummy. And if weight watchers approves, I approve!
