Coke Cake

While having a drink of coke the other day, it just struck me on the idea of baking a cake with it. On top of adding coke into the cake mixture, I also made some coke glazing to pour over the baked cake for a glossy finish. The taste of coke was not prominent as those who tasted the cake could not guess that coke was one of the ingredients until I told them so. Here’s how the recipes goes:

Ingredients
1 1/2 cup coke
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs – beat/whisk until fluffy
3 tbsp salted butter
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Glazing:
1 1/2 cup coke
1 tbsp brown sugar

Method:
Add sugar and coke into a pan, simmer until you get a thick syrup and reduced to half the portion.
Off the heat, add butter and stir slowly to dissolve it.
Let it cool down, then the shifted the flour, soda and baking powder. Gently fold in.
Add the eggs and do the same.
Line a baking tray with parchment/baking paper, covering all sides/angles
Pour the cake mixture inside and bake at a preheated oven (10mins) – 200c for 40 Min’s or until the cake is done with.
For the glazing, simmer the coke and sugar, again to obtain a thick syrup.
Pour over the cake while its still warm.
Let the cake cool down before cutting in shapes you prefer.
