Strawberry Quirk Cake

Quirk Strawberry Lemon and Basil is one of our most popular flavors, and it just so happens to be the perfect flavor for Spring.

So why not make it into an old-fashioned soda cake like the kind your grandma used to make? Those cakes were sweet because of all the sugar in soda, but since Quirks are low in sugar (<1g) this cake isn't super sweet. We'd recommend adding a light icing to the top to up the sweetness and pump up the lemon.


One box of Strawberry Cake mix
One 12oz can of Quirk Strawberry Lemon & Basil


½ powdered sugar
Juice of half a lemon
1 tbsp of lemon zest
1 tbsp of milk or water

(optional) Fresh strawberries and basil

*soda cake is dense and sticky. You can prepare it in different shapes of pans but don't try to layer this cake. A Bundt cake pan, a 9x13, or cupcake tins would be best. Coat any pan you use very well with butter and flour to ensure easy removal. (or cooking spray on paper if you're making cupcakes)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add your box of cake mix and the entire can of Quirk to the mixer, and whisk for one minute on low and two on medium.
  3. Pour dough into prepped pan and bake for 30 mins.
  4. (if using a bundt pan) let cool for 5 minutes before turning out onto your serving dish to finish cooling.
  5. The icing. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together icing ingredients until they are smooth. You want the icing to slowly run off the whisk, not too thick and not too watery. 
  6. Once your cake is cooled add the icing and garnish! 


Cool completely before slicing and enjoying. We'd also recommend you serve it with a Quirk Strawberry Lemon & Basil!
