Watch Us Make: CokeCola Cake

When life hands you cola, make cake.

If you’re going to indulge, go big. That’s the motto that should be pinned onto this recipe for CokeCola Cake. Why? Because this extra-rich, over-the-top chocolate-y concoction uses a sugary ingredient that’s hard to miss-Coca-Cola. Yup, your favorite fizzy pop isn’t just for drinking anymore.

Apparently, adding cola to cakes is common in Georgia, according to recipe creator Heidi Jobe. Soda pop makes for an ultra-moist texture, as well as a sweet counterbalance to the cocoa powder. Even the frosting is made with cola, yielding an extra layer of flavor.
