Creating a dessert with frozen berries, cake mix, and Sprite is a fun and easy way to whip up a delicious treat with minimal effort. The carbonation in Sprite helps the cake rise without the need for traditional leaveners like eggs and oil. This recipe is not only quick but also versatile, allowing you to use any type of berries and cake mix you prefer. Here’s how to make a delightful Berry Sprite Cake:

Berry Sprite Cake Recipe


  • 1 box of white or yellow cake mix (you can also use vanilla, lemon, or any flavor that pairs well with berries)
  • 1 can (12 oz) Sprite (or any similar lemon-lime soda)
  • 2 cups frozen berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or a mix)
  • Optional: powdered sugar for dusting


  • 9×13 inch baking dish
  • Spoon or spatula
  • Optional: sieve for dusting powdered sugar


  1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Pan:
    • Preheat your oven according to the cake mix instructions, typically around 350°F (175°C).
    • Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish or line it with parchment paper for easier cleanup.
  2. Mix Cake Batter:
    • In a large bowl, combine the dry cake mix and the can of Sprite. Stir until the mixture is well combined and relatively smooth. The batter will be lighter and quite foamy due to the carbonation.
  3. Add Berries:
    • Gently fold the frozen berries into the cake batter. Mixing them in while frozen helps keep the berries from bleeding too much color into the batter.
  4. Bake the Cake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for the time specified on the cake mix box, usually around 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  5. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the cake to cool in the pan on a wire rack.
    • Once cool, dust the top with powdered sugar if desired for a touch of sweetness and a more finished look.
  6. Serve:
    • Slice the cake into squares and serve. This cake is delicious on its own or can be paired with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat.


  • Soda Variations: You can experiment with different types of soda to change the flavor profile. For example, ginger ale or a berry-flavored carbonated drink can add a unique twist.
  • Cake Mix and Berry Variations: Feel free to experiment with different combinations of cake mix and berries. Lemon cake mix with blueberries, or chocolate cake mix with cherries, can make delightful variations.
  • Checking Doneness: Since the moisture content varies with the addition of frozen fruit, you may need to adjust the baking time. Always check doneness with a toothpick or cake tester.

This recipe for Berry Sprite Cake is not only simple and quick to prepare but also delightfully refreshing. It’s perfect for gatherings, potlucks, or whenever you want a fuss-free dessert that is sure to impress. Enjoy your delicious creation!
