If you would have told me that this cupcake….made with just seltzer water and cake mix and a few chocolate chips…would be the most moist, delicious, chocolaty cupcake ever…I would have told you “shut the front door”….or “no flipping way” or…”catch the next train to crazy town…cause that is where you came from…” etc.…I could go on…and yes this is the longest sentence in the world. (breathe…) Any who, you HAVE GOT to try this!!

Do I smell? Don’t answer that.

Seriously. No joke. Amazing balls cupcakes.

And they took 1.5 minutes to make.


1 box devils food cake mix

1.5 cups chilled Seltzer water

3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Mix together. Bake for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Yes, you can thank me now.

So you are going to try right?

(I came across this while seeing a DR. OZ commercial. Hungry Girl.com has similar recipes that call for soda.)

(no clue on the calorie count….but there is zero oil or eggs…so you have to be saving some right?!)

  1. These look amazing, I am totally going to try them at home! Do you think other cake mixes can be used rather than just Devils Food??

  2. I love Seltzer water. I drink it every day. My mom actually makes her German pancakes by adding seltzer water instead of milk. So I totally believe it ;) I have to try to make these.

  3. I made these the other day. They were delicious but fell apart instantly. You need to eat them with a spoon.

  4. My girls would LOVE these and I love how quick and easy they are! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I have seen this recipe in hungrygirl. They also have one using a can of pumpkin and a box of devils food cake mix. Very dense and fudgey, and absolutely no pumpkin taste. Very sneaky way to get orange veggies into kids?

  6. These look pretty great for my next chocolate fix! Looking forward to working with you over at I Heart Naptime. Just singed up to follow you!
