Coca-Cola Cake

Weird and wonderful things occur on this blog and this recipe is one that you may turn your nose at. I guess you could say 'don't knock it until you try it', but we aren't quite sure. Coca-Cola cake is certainly a new one.

You will need (for the cake)

400g of all-purpose flour 

75g of mini marshmallows 

115g of butter 

118ml of vegetable oil 

Three tablespoons of cocoa 

235ml of Coca-Cola

One teaspoon of baking soda 

120g of buttermilk 

Two eggs 

One teaspoon of vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius and in a bowl, sift the sugar and flour, adding the marshmallows in gradually. In a saucepan on a medium heat, mix the butter, oil, cocoa and Coca-Cola, bring it to a boil and pour over the dry ingredients. Blend well. 

Dissolve your baking soda in the buttermilk before adding to the batter along with the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix well until all of the ingredients are well combined and a batter has formed. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking pan and pop in the oven for 35-45 minutes. Remove from the oven and frost immediately (at least you don't need to wait around for cooling!). 

To make the frosting, combine butter, cocoa and the Coca-Cola in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and pour over the icing sugar, blending well. Add your vanilla extract and chopped nuts. Spread over the warm cake and then cut when cool.  *Recipe from Cookies and Cups* 

Seems as if it'll be like Marmite. You will either love it or hate it. On a scale of 1 to 100, how much of a Coca-Cola fan are you? If in doubt, add Gookie Dough
