Coca Cola Cake

This month’s Iron Cupcake challenge is “Soda”. I was/am excited about this ingredient, but I have so many choices I am not sure what to do. Some of the other cupcakers make several different entries, but I just don’t have that much time and am lucky to get my ONE entry in! So, giving this a little (too much?) thought I got sidetracked..uh oh.

I remembered this old recipe for Coca Cola cake that I thought I could adapt for a cupcake, but got off track somewhere down the line and ended up making the cake as-is…all 9×13 of it! It’s a great recipe for a super-sweet, chocolate-like cake that hits the spot, not with a glass of coke, but a tall glass of milk! If you haven’t ever tried it, give it a shot…it’s delicious!
