I’ve made this twice and have perfected the recipe and now it looks exactly like the photo above. The first time the icing was too runny. The second time I used 8 oz of Coke for the cake and 8 oz for the icing. And I sifted the powdered sugar. If you decrease the amount of Coke and make sure you sift the powdered sugar you will have a gorgeous, delicious Coke Cake!
Moist but too sweet. I used Dr Pepper
My husband and I really like it.
I made it exactly as written, except I did not include cinnamon. My coke boiled down to a little less than a half cup so I added a Tablespoon of Coke. It turned out perfectly.
For all the problems the angry people had ... listen closely! The Coca Cola has to be boiled down to a syrup and exactly 1/2 cup( not rocket science just takes a little patience) this recipe if followed as directed is an amazing cake and it is supposed to be a little moist and if you don’t follow the directions or try to hurry and make this quick it’s NOT going to turn out correctly! Not the recipe or the person who submitted the recipes fault.. it yours so stop blaming people for your mistakes and impatience... jeez you act like it’s a horrible thing that your recipe didn’t turn out the way YOU expected... ok let it go! Lol - I’ve been making this recipe for years and it’s an amazing recipe and an amazing cake! If you don’t like cinnamon leave it out .. but as in any recipe when baking measure all of the ingredients and follow the recipe... and it turns out great! All the others quit your whining and go buy something from your local store and smile.... lighten up !! It’s only a cake??
Delicious and moist, probably one of the best coke cakes I've made. However, the glaze looks nothing like the recipe photo above. It's very thin. It also ran down the sides of the cake and puddled under the cake in the pan. I hesitate to add more confectioners' sugar so maybe next time I'll use less cola in the glaze. My family really enjoyed the cake and I will definitely make it again.
Delicious and moist cake. I used classic coke for cake and icing. Next time I make it, will probably use a different icing that stands up a little better.
How much powdered sugar or coffinate sugar for glaze? How do you make icing?
I would like to ask how the taste of home cooks were able to get their cake to look so well in the photo. I followed the recipe exactly as written, boiled coke classic down to 1/2 cup and the icing was way too thin. everyone thought it was a great lava cake. If I ever make this cake again I will leave out the cinnamon and decrease the butter to 1/2 stick in the icing. And I will not ice it while hot.
I have made this cake several times and taken to pot-luck parties. Every time it get rave reviews. Everyone loves it and so do I. I use Coke classic and it has always come out perfect. Thanks for posting this recipe.
