Thanks to Coca-Cola, I’m bringing you this sponsored post where I tested out of one of the Coca-Cola recipes that was featured on their My Coke Rewards website several years ago, an Easy Devil’s Food Coca-Cola Cake.
Coke With Meals?
I bet that caught your attention! You see, Coca-Cola is a one of a kind ingredient that many chefs and home-cooks love to use in their meals. And I’m not just talking about dessert, though that’s my featured dish today. In fact, you’ll find that Coca-Cola is often used in BBQ recipes and main dishes, like Coca-Cola Beef Stew. I was drooling over that one!
Having never cooked nor baked with Coca-Cola, I was curious and couldn’t wait to get in the kitchen.
Easy Devil’s Food Coca-Cola Cake:
This recipe works great for a last minute dessert or for unexpected company, even when you’ve run out of butter or eggs! Love that. Just keep these 2 ingredients in the pantry at all times and you will impress everyone!
INGREDIENTS: ONLY TWO (2) INGREDIENTS!
- Boxed Cake Mix – Devil’s Food Cake
- 10 oz Coca-Cola
Yep, that’s it! Don’t you see why I was so curious? No eggs. No butter. No oil. Nothing.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT ADD any of the ingredients listed on the cake mix box.
Measure out 10 oz of Coca-Cola, which is just a bit less than your average Coke can.
Add the Coca-Cola to the boxed cake mix and stir ingredients together.
Pour batter into a greased cake pan, and follow the instructions on the cake mix box for temperature and length of time. (Mine was 325 degrees for about 25 minutes)
LICK THE BOWL: This is the ONE recipe where my daughter is allowed to lick the bowl – no raw eggs, so no worries. Licking the bowl was something we never thought twice about growing up, but I just couldn’t let my own daughter ever lick the batter with raw eggs in it. But I’m happy to report she can now join in this childhood tradition! 🙂
Moist. Moist. Moist.
If you thought you might need frosting with this cake, think again. The Coca-Cola cake smelled so heavenly straight out of the oven, that I just sifted a little powdered sugar on top and served it warm.
Feel free to get a little creative by adding fruit or other garnish.
And as for licking that bowl…
Here’s a photo of Mommy’s Little Helper just minutes before licking the bowl for the first time years ago! Look at that smile!
