This old-fashioned Coca-Cola cake recipe by Foods101withDeronda on YouTube is a southern dessert that’s made with an iconic soda. It’s a moist chocolate sheet cake that’s dense with a thin layer of chocolate glaze on top with pecans. This is like heaven in a bite that calls for a glass of milk on the side. It’s a classic southern cake that would be fun to make. The difference between this and the Texas sheet cake would be the addition of Coca-Cola. I’m not a big pecans fan, but I think having the extra crunch in this cake will be a good touch for texture. Also, you can substitute this Coca-Cola cake recipe with other soda options such as Dr. Pepper, Pepsi, or Diet Coke.
First, preheat the oven to 350F. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside. In a small saucepan, add Coca Cola, butter, and cocoa over medium heat. Bring it to a boil while stirring occasionally. Add to the flour mixture until moist. Continue to watch Foods101withDeronda tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details.
Next, after 15 minutes before the cake has finished baking, prepare the glaze and pour it over the warm cake. Cool for about 1 hour before serving.
Serve this Coca-Cola chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream for a perfect rich dessert. This cake reminds me of Texas sheet cake and it looks super moist. I can’t wait to make this because I am a chocolate lover and want to see if the Coca-Cola adds any new flavors.
