Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake Recipe

When I first heard of Chocolate Cola Cake, I wasn’t sure what it would taste like. I asked my sister-in-law if she’s ever had it before, she mentioned she didn’t have a pleasant experience. However I am adventurous and enjoy trying new recipes, so I decided to give it a go. I love chocolate and coke, so surely the combination couldn’t go wrong…

Once the cake was ready, we were all pleasantly surprised how moist and tasty it was. Such a beautiful chocolate cake, we will definitely be making this recipe again soon!
