I had this bottle of coke sitting which I did not want to drink nor give it off to anybody else (more of concern, you see… 😉 ). Before blogging, I had heard that coke gave a lovely flavor and color to chocolate cake. I wanted to bake a cake but I did not have even a single egg. While googling through, I found this recipe, which was perfect as I had everything in the pantry. Went ahead and baked it. What I got was a dark colored, dense and extremely moist cake, but mildly sweet. I had baked this cake when there was nobody at home to share with, so as usual what I would have done next, I cut into pieces and brought it for my colleagues, who really enjoyed it. I played a guess game with them as to what was the secret ingredient and when they heard “coke”, their jaws dropped!!! You just cannot make out the presence of coke in it. One colleague, who is an “anti-processed food activist”, gobbled up two pieces before I broke the secret. I was worried if he would really puke it out, but he didn’t! All I got was a big stare… Hehe…
Linking this to Tangy Minds First Anniversary celebrations…
