Oh, you guys! It’s been so long since I’ve blogged a recipe for my Tasty Tuesdays series. As you all may know, we’ve had a whirlwind of a summer, and it began with our college graduations. Before then, I was loving sharing recipes specifically intended for busy moms, photographers, business owners, teachers, workers who are like me in that: 1) they enjoy putting a meal on the table for their honey 2) they lead busy lives 3) they love learning about new recipes and could potentially talk about them over a soy chai..all day long.
When I realized that recipes are such a fun topic for me to talk about with friends, find on Pinterest or while flipping through books at Barnes and Noble, I decided to share some of my favorite fast and easy recipes for others who are similar to me. I’m not promising gourmet here. But I am promising yummy and quick!
This leads me to probably the easiest recipe I can share with you all. I’m going to kick it off with a Sprite Cake I found on Pinterest a few years ago when I was in my undergrad. You’ll only need 2 ingredients, and it’ll leave you craving a good, tall glass of milk!
1 box of cake mix (confetti, yellow, white, etc.)
1 can of Sprite Zero
Beat together the box cake of your choice and Sprite Zero until well blended, and follow the baking instructions on the back of the cake box. I usually use a 9x13 pan that’s well greased and choose to sprinkle chocolate chips on top sometimes. Okay all the time.
This dessert leaves you feeling satisfied, feeling somewhat healthy and makes you smack your tongue against the roof of your mouth, because of it’s desirable gooeyness!
Truly, I think that’s why I love it so much--because it’s so gooey! If you’re one of those people who loves the edges of brownies, because they’re crunchy…..well, give this a try, but you might want to stick to the edges of brownies, because this is for us gooey lovers!
Mmm mm! I hope you all enjoy this light summer dessert and find creative ways to dress it up to your liking: strawberries, blueberries, peanut chips, etc!
Who knew a can of Sprite Zero and a box cake can equal so much yummiess!?
Until next time, enjoy!
