When I made it for the first time, I wasn’t sure how it would taste or if it would even come out of the oven edible. To my surprise, it tasted delicious! All you need is a box of cake mix, pop, and some frozen fruit.

I had some frozen mixed berries already that I’ve been using for smoothies. I layered them at the bottom of a 9×13 baking pan. You can use any type of fruit you have on hand.

Sprinkle your cake mix on top of the fruit as evenly as you can. Sometimes cake mix can be lumpy in the bag so I gently massage the bag to break out the lumps.

Then pour your pop (I used Sprite) evenly over the cake mix. Do not mix. Make sure you cover everything. This is what gives helps to bake the cake part of the dessert.

The only thing that I was missing was a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Next time I’ll try frozen peaches with ginger ale. Be creative and play around with the ingredients. This is such a simple recipe that even my 10 year old could make!
