Coca Cola Chocolate Cake (Take 2)

Coca Cola Chocolate Cake (Take 2)

In France, when my children had tummyache and eventually diarrhoea, my doctors would usually prescribe - Coca Cola. I do not know if they were paid by the company to do so, but in any case, I've always given my children Coca Cola when they are sick and they are very happy with it.

Needless to say, I drove to the nearest store in the rain this morning to buy a big bottle of Coca Cola. I try not to keep soft drinks at home, so you can be sure that this bottle was a treat. That also gave me the idea to give the Coca Cola Cake another try. But I've decided to try out Precious Moments' version as the ingredients and method looked similar, but not the proportions. Hers had more butter and eggs, for example. So here's Coca Cola Chocolate Cake Take 2.

As I have finished my self-raising flour and golden castor sugar, I had to make a few adjustments.

Coca Cola Chocolate Cake :

250g Flour
1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
2/3 Tsp Double-acting Baking Powder
200g Organic Cane Sugar
100g Castor Sugar
3 Tbsp Cocoa powder
200g Butter
250ml Coca Cola
120ml Milk
2 large Eggs
1 Tsp Vanilla extract

Heat up oven to 180°C.

Sift the flour with the baking soda and powder. Combine with the sugar and cocoa powder in a big bowl.

Melt the butter in the microwave oven on high for 30 seconds. Add the Coca Cola and microwave for another minute. Stir to mix well.

Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture and stir well. Add the milk, eggs and vanilla extract, stirring all the time.

Fresh out of the oven

I used a 25-cm silicon mould so my cake will not come out thick for sure. I was too lazy to dig out my other moulds.

Baked the cake for 50 minutes, then without opening the oven door, I turned off the heat and let it bake for another 15 minutes. Took it out of the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes before I unmoulded the cake.

Cake turned out moist, not too sweet and tasted like a cross between a honeycomb kueh and a cake. Interesting. And the kids liked it, especially the bit where they got to eat it with a glass of Coke.
