Short on eggs and oil but yearning for a piece of cake? If you have soda in the house, you have no worries. Most packaged cake mixes direct you to add 3 eggs and 1/4 cup of oil to the mix. But the thing is, you don’t have to. Here is a way to bake a cake without either eggs or oil that will result in a cake that is delicious — and lower in fat and cholesterol.

1. Take out your packaged cake mix. Any flavor will work.

2. Grab a can of your favorite soda. Use diet soda for the fewest calories.

3. Ignore the directions on the box — don’t add eggs, water, or oil. Just add one can of soda.

4. Bake for the amount of time suggested on the cake mix. You will have a delicious cake — and eat it, too!
