A cup of Coke is used in a Coke cake.
In the southern tradition of using ingredients by hand to create something special, the Coca-Cola cake is certainly a good example. This chocolate cake recipe has been around for several years and its popularity waxes and wanes, mainly because the idea of a soda in a cake is so strange. However, Coca-Cola cake is a treat that doesn’t taste much like cola but tastes like exceptionally moist chocolate cake.
Adding Coke makes a very moist chocolate cake.
The ingredients for the Coca-Cola cake are simple: 2 cups of unplanted flour; 2 cups of sugar; 2 sticks of butter; 1 cup of Coke; 3 tablespoons of cocoa; 1/2 cup of buttermilk; 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda; 2 beaten eggs; 1 tablespoon of vanilla; 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows.
Sift the flour and sugar into a bowl. Heat the glue, butter and cocoa to boiling point and drizzle with the flour and sugar mixture. Add the buttermilk, soda, eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the marshmallows. They will float to the top during cooking. Pour into an oiled and floured rectangular baking dish. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Freeze while the cake is still warm.
While the cake is baking, mix the frosting. Empty a box of icing sugar into an ovenproof bowl. Heat 3/4 cup of butter, 3 tablespoons of cocoa and 6 tablespoons of Coke until boiling. Add this mixture to the icing sugar. Whisk well and add 1 cup of chopped walnuts and stir well. Spread over the hot cake. The hot frosting will help melt the marshmallows, creating a sticky frosting.
The Coca-Cola Cake Recipe is almost foolproof. It turns out well and gives a moist cake. A cook can add more cocoa to the icing and batter for more chocolate flavor. This is a wonderful recipe for beginners or young cooks as it is almost always a hit. It’s perfect for picnics or festive dinners, and most people love it.
