Coca Cola Chocolate Cake For Two Recipe – Glen And Friends Cooking
This Coke Cake recipe is a riff on a Chocolate Buttermilk Cake recipe where we’ve substituted Coca Cola for a bit of caramel flavour, and replicate the acid content of the buttermilk. This isn’t that famous Cracker Barrel Coca Cola Cake, or even a copycat Coca Cola cake from Cracker Barrel… But it’s still an amazing moist flavourful cake.
For the cake:
60 mL (¼ cup) butter, softened
90 mL (¼ cup + 2 Tbsp) sugar
1 egg yolk
2 mL (½ tsp) pure vanilla extract
125 mL (½ cup) all-purpose flour
20 mL (1 Tbsp + 1 tsp) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 mL (¼ tsp) baking soda
30 mL (2 Tbsp) buttermilk
60 mL (¼ cup) Coke
For the Icing:
45 mL (3 Tbsp) butter
10 mL (2 tsp) cocoa powder
45 mL (3 Tbsp) Coke
250 mL (1 cup) icing sugar
1 mL (¼ tsp) pure vanilla extract
60 mL (¼ cup) chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF), and grease a 6″ round cake pan.
Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
In another bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Beat in the egg yolk then the vanilla and mix until combined.
Mix some of the Coke and buttermilk into the butter mixture, then mix in some of the flour.
Alternate until all ingredients are combined.
Scrape the batter into the cake pan, and bake for 25-30 minutes.
While the cake is baking, melt together the butter, cocoa, and chocolate chips.
As this is melting whisk in the Coke.
Once everything has melted together, remove from the heat and whisk in the icing sugar.
Set aside and allow to cool – it will thicken as it cools.
When the cake is fully baked, remove from oven and allow to cool to room temp before icing.
