Cooking with sodas adds that punch of flavor. We enjoy Slow Cooker Coke Ribs and Slow Cooker Dr Pepper Pulled Pork quite often since I have shared them with you.

The Ingredient list looks a bit overwhelming but trust me this cake is SUPER quick to throw together. I just made sure I gathered all of the ingredients needed ahead of time. I am not one for doing long drawn out recipes and this one did not seem the slightest bit time or effort consuming.

  1. First , I love a great coke cola chocolate cake, that being said I the recipe needs to be be update. Read thru recipe at least 2 times before assembling cake , each step moves very fast. Secondly make sure you take you butter out of the fridge and soften before making icing. This step should have been included in the icing recipe. You make a mess if you don’t, cocoa powder will fly everywhere.I haven’t tasted the cake yet because I am cleaning up cocoa powder from my kitchen.

  2. I dont normally leave a review but this was so bad i had to comment. There was was too much cocoa in the cake….Overwhelming!! The frosting tasted terrible. I thought that the syrup would be a welcome addition to the icing. It was not. Wasted my time and money.
