Sprite pie

Technically, you'll need ingredients for a pie crust or at least a pre-made one, but other than that the filling for this pie is one thing and one thing only.

Yes, the canned soda we all know and love can be used just as is to create a filling for a baked dish.

Who would have thought?

Apparently, TikTok user @kitchentools has had a lot of time (like most of us this year) to play around with a bunch of interesting ingredients, but the one that stands out is the Sprite pie.

Sprite has a high sugar content and so when baked at the right temperature it turns from a liquid puddle to a gooey, caramelised filling.

While most people enjoy the taste, the texture is quite questionable.

The origin of this recipe isn't purely from TikTok, though.

This recipe is loosely based on a recipe from the American Depression Era where a very similar pie called "water pie" was a common meal in most households.

People didn't have access to cocoa or fruits and had to work with what they had.

This recipe obviously piqued the interest of many in the culinary community, so they just had to try it for themselves - and it's quite interesting to watch:

If you too are curious to try this at home, don't worry, we have the recipe right here!


Frozen pie crust (thawed)

1 can of Sprite

1 cup of granulated sugar

1 tbs vanilla extract

5 tbs butter (grated)

4 tbs flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  2. Combine the sugar and four together in a bowl and stir until well combined.
  3. Pour the entire can of sprite into your pie crust.
  4. Using a spoon, gradually add the sugar and flour mixture to your pie crust, sprinkling it evenly over the sprite.
  5. Spoon over the vanilla extract.
  6. Add the grated butter to the pie, so that it covers most of the mixture evenly.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes at 200ºC and then reduce the temperature to 135ºC and cook for a further 30 minutes.
  8. Allow the pie to cool at room temperature and then place in the fridge for at least an hour.
  9. Slice it up and enjoy!

Well, we hope you enjoy it. If not, maybe use Coca-Cola instead?
