The Mountain Dew Cupcake Recipe

Mountain Dew isn’t my favorite soda for sure but these Mountain Dew cupcakes were my favorite out of all the Soda Pop Cupcakes I made and the Mountain Dew Cupcake Recipe is an easy one that tastes very lemony. I figured we had to do a mix of lemon and lime and they came out super yummy and made the plate of cupcakes look pretty too!

  1. I never would have thought to use Mountain Dew in cupcake! I bet the carbonation made the cupcakes a little lighter!

  2. What a great idea for unique cupcake flavor. My kids love Mountain Dew so I know they would be in heaven if I made these cupcakes….thank you so much for sharing it 🙂

  3. Did you use a cake mix that required only adding water, or one that requires oil, eggs and water? Thanks!

  4. How much powdered sugar do I use? It just says “1#.”
