I love cola and chocolate so that's why I made this cake ☺ I don't have a gluten allergy, so I used self raising flour. I also used semi skimmed milk, margarine, light brown sugar and Pepsi Max.
It's a very rich chocolate cake with a beautifully moist texture! I was a little obsessive when eating on try to analyse the cola element!... I'd say if you think about it, it's there, but it just compliments the cake overall. I don't think non cola fans should be put off or would dislike it.
I iced it following the recipe and really like the icing. I'm not a fan of using icing sugar, so was happy with the icing.
I used a square 8x8 inch cake tin. It worked well giving a nice deep cake, appropriate for a single layer cake. I'd recommend this to anyone who loves rich chocolate cake 😊 - 14 May 2016
