Coca Cola Fudge Cake

1 3/4 C Flour
2 C Brown Sugar
3/4 C Cocoa
2 t baking Soda
1 t baking powder
dash salt
2 eggs
1/2 C oil
1 C Cola
1 C of Buttermilk (I actually use trim Milk and it works)
1 t vanilla
Sift all dry ingredients into mixing bowl
Add wet and beat on medium to high speed till combined. Make sure you line you tin with gladbake if the tin is spring form as this is a very wet mix.
But being such a wet mix its is a moist almost mud cake texture. In fact we used to wholesale it as mud cake.
Bake in 9 x 13 Inch cake tin at 350 F or until prong comes out clean.

This recipe is in fact called - easy rich choc cake!

Easy Rich Chocolate Cake

Sift and then mix
2 C flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
½ C cocoa
1 ½ C sugar

Add
2 lightly beaten eggs
½ C oil
1 tbl malt vinegar
1 C milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 C black coffee (cold)

Put into greased round tin, bake at 180 deg celsiusfor aprox 45 mins.Ice with chocolate ganache when cold.

Chocolate Ganache

½ cup cream
150g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped (or dark chocolate melts)

Combine cream and chocolate in a bowl and melt, either in the microwave or by placing bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir until smooth.I put it in the fridge till it cools and thickens then its easier to spread.

It is the best recipe I have ever used - moist, the cake lasts for so long and I have layered it before and it works well. Its dense but still layers fine.

tried this one and had to use easy yo yoghurt, i just used powder and water and added and OMFG, it was beautiful! thanks everyone, will be trying all of these!

do you have to boil the coke first to get the bubbles out?

a_n_h, Jun 7, 2:56am
I made the coke one the other day and didn't boil the coke. I just chucked it all in a big bowl & mixed.

I baked it @ 180 degrees for about 45 mins.

mackenzie2, Jun 7, 3:24am
No you don't boil the coke first, just add it straight out of the bottle

tinkagirl, Jun 7, 7:32am

Deep Dark Choc Cake - gorgeous rich cake and so easy to make! I cut it in half and put choc ganache in the middle with some sliced strawberries!

2 cups sugar
1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
¾ cup cocoa
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
½ cup vegetable oil (canola is good) olive oil is a bit strong tasting
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water

180 or 170 fan forced oven. Combine dry ingredients. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla and beat for 2 minutes with electric mixer. Then stir in boiling water. The mixture will be very runny. Bake for approx 50 mins or until skewer comes out
clean. Suits a large round or square cake tin.

Coke cake is so good! Hubby is gluten and dairy intolerant so I use gluten free flour and rice milk and it turns out really nice as well!
