Vegan Cake? Yes!

I think I exude some kind of hippy vibe because people are often surprised when they find out I am not, in fact, a vegan.

However, I recently discovered that vegan food is not only pretty good (I was surprised!), but it's sometimes very simple to make when you're in a pinch!

On NYE I was about to head out to a friends house empty handed... 
UNTIL
I discovered a box of cake mix, a can of frosting and a can of diet 7up.

Thankfully I happened to learn, also recently, that you can combine 8 ounces (one cup) of any diet soda with a package of any cake mix and it comes out perfectly!

I baked the cake according to the regular instructions and it turned out very well!

And... tada!

It's a little chewier/heavier than regular cake, but it's still delicious!

You are so right about vegan food!! We eat mostly vegan, but sometimes have fish. We are lucky to have some great veg restaurants near us.
