Preheat oven according to package directions. Line 24 standard (2 1/2-inch) muffin cups with paper baking cups

Beat cake mix, soda, egg, egg white, and oil in large bowl with electric mixer at low speed 30 seconds. Beat at medium speed 2 minutes or until well blended. Spoon evenly into prepared muffin cups.
