Tonight we are off to some friends house for an evening of fun. I'm in charge of dessert. In celebration of spring and to pull out an old favorite I decided to make my Strawberry "Coke"Cake.
Before I get rolling on the actual to-do, I want to clarify on the name. No, there is no actual Coca-Cola in the cake, BUT there is a carbonated beverage - all of which are known in the south / Atlanta area as COKE!
A simple bake, the Strawberry "Coke" Cake is great for all kinds of occasions: cookouts, family gatherings, showers & (my fave) just cause!
1 box (16oz.) Angel Food Cake Mix
1 1/4 cup Strawberry Coke (aka. Soda, Soda-Pop, Pop - whatever you call it)
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Butter, Melted
2 cups Sifted Confectioners' (Powdered) Sugar
4 tbsp. Strawberry Coke
4 drops Red Food Coloring
1. Prepare cake mix according to the box, but in place of the water, substitute the first measure of strawberry Coke & honey. Bake as directed & cool.*
2. While cake is baking, prepare glaze by combining melted butter, confectioners' sugar, remaining Coke measure & food coloring.
3. Drizzle glaze onto cake once cake is cooled. Serve & enjoy!
This recipe serves around 10 or so & takes about an hour to make. Simple as can be!
*Bakers Note: I love to use my bundt pan, but the mixture makes a little extra. Instead of using a different pan I fill my bundt pan 3/4 of the way full & use the remaining batter to make cute little cupcakes! Aren't they great on my Alabama plate? (RTR!)
Good times & God bless,
