Have you ever tasted a Coca Cola Cake?
I had noticed internet chitchat about this cake intermittently over the years.
Finally, I made one.
What was actually in it? Diabetics beware! Not a lot of soft drink, but a smattering of ingredients that are generally not really recommended as healthy. There was only one cup of coca cola, but an entire packet of small marshmallows and two cups of sugar. Let's be truthful - nobody eats cake to be healthy, ever.
The recipe said to make it as a slab, but following such advice was not on my agenda. Used a cake tin that looks a bit fancy; it filled a large tin. When making this cake, the batter is quite runny as it goes into the cake tin - surprisingly runny.
A dollop of icing and a few choc bits added finishing touches after my masterpiece had cooled.
What is the verdict?
This cake tastes fine, freezes well, and has enough preservatives to extend my life for an extra ten years. It is a firm cake; more like a mud cake than a sponge. One slice is definitely enough with a coffee.
Yes, I will make it again one day.
