Coca Cola Cake

coca cola cake 1

There is nothing better than a classic dessert like this irresistible coca cola cake. This delicious chocolate cake is a classic childhood favorite!

There is something about a cake made with soda that appeals to me. It is like the most indulgent way to make dessert. I never had a cake like that as a kid. I never even heard of it until well after college, but I was kind of hooked the moment I was introduced.

It’s such a simple treat that only takes a few ingredients and tastes incredible. The way its made reminds me a bit of a red velvet cake, minus the food coloring. And it tastes twice as good, if you can even imagine!

For those of you who may not have had coca cola cake before, it doesn’t taste like a can of soda in cake form. I think it is sweeter than your typical cake, but not too much so. It does lent the of the distinctive coca cola flavor, but it is complemented by chocolate, which is the predominant flavor. My favorite part is the cola icing which does have more of a soda taste, but in a really good way.
