It’s National Chocolate Cake Day and we’re celebrating by combining two of the best things in life, chocolate cake and DOUBLE-COLA. Just like DOUBLE-COLA, this cake recipe is sure to be a crowd pleaser and leave everyone wanting more. The best part? It only takes one can or glass bottle of DOUBLE-COLA which will leave you with plenty leftover to drink.
1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
A pinch of salt
1 can/glass bottle of DOUBLE-COLA (12oz)
2 tablespoons of cocoa
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter (softened and cut into cubes)
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Optional: Chocolate icing and chocolate shavings to decorate
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together granulated sugar, flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside for later.
Combine DOUBLE-COLA, cocoa, and softened butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil while stirring constantly.
Pour the DOUBLE-COLA mixture into the dry mixture. Mix together and set aside.
In a large sized mixing bowl, beat together the unsalted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract until completely smooth.
Gradually whisk the DOUBLE-COLA mixture in, mixing completely each time.
Pour cake batter into a lightly greased cake pan and bake for 30 minutes.
While cake is baking, pop open a DOUBLE-COLA and enjoy. You deserve it!
Optional: Wait for the cake to completely cool and ice with chocolate icing. Finish off by decorating with chocolate shavings.
