    This recipe puzzles me. Sprite and Cola Zero are made with aspartame. It is specifically stated on the bottles that it is not for cooking or baking (and any experienced dieter would know not to use this for baking or cooking). If I were to use a diet soda, I would use RC diet drinks or any other that is based on Splenda. The other problem that puzzles me, is why use a ready to bake that contains sugar, and then use diet soda as a liquid. What is the purpose? Thank you for your reply.

    I know this comment is old... but here are my thoughts on this. The soda eliminates the added calories from oil and eggs, not from the cake mix itself. While this does not eliminate the sugar issue it does cut down on the overall calorie count. You are correct in noting that aspartame breaks down in the oven. Sacharin or Sucralose would hold up to heat better. However, since the cake mix is sweetened there is no need for the sweetness from the soda.
