Coca-Cola Bread

Can it get any easier to create this recipe than mixing together two ingredients?  This 'quick' bread is a no-brainer even for the baking impaired.  The only thing that could possibly go wrong would be if you over stirred them it the bowl.  The reason that you are barely combining the two ingredients,  is so that you keep all of the air that is in the carbonation from the soda.  You are basically using the soda as your leveling agent to ensure a proper rise for the bread.  Plain and simple here is the key to this wonderfully delicious bread.

3 cups of pancake mix (I only use Bisquick)
1- 12oz. can of Coca-Cola soda

-Preheat your oven to 400*.  Grease the inside of a loaf pan (I used stoneware).  In a large bowl stir together the pancake mix and the soda just until wet (it's ok-the batter will be lumpy).  Pour into your greased loaf pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until an inserted wooden toothpick comes out clean.  Serves 8.  Enjoy!


  1. It's crazy that I found this article because I was thinking about using soda as a leavening agent! I'll be sure to try this in the very near future!

  2. :) it is really neat :) I would love to know if you try it out in another baking recipe :)

  3. Hah! I was just making beer bread and wondering if you could use soda in place of the beer and sugar. I guess the answer is yes!

  4. If you're using pancake mix it is also frequently self leavening, the additional acid from the soda would help speed up that process I imagine.
    Just a random note :P
