A Cola Kind of Weekend

If you know me, you know I'm a major coke addict. Coca-Cola that is! I have been for awhile and, even though I know it isn't good for me, I can't help myself. It's my not-so-secret indulgence. :)

For quite some time now, I've been seeing pins for the chocolate cola cake. I pinned it quite some time ago but hadn't tried it yet. Until this past weekend... 

I must admit, I'm not a big chocolate lover. Chocolate just doesn't do it for me so much. But I do love a really good cake. And, as already established, Coke. And the pictures of this cake just looked so darn good! So I decided to give it a try. 

It really couldn't have been any easier to make. You should copy the recipe I used because you SO need to try this cake! It was very dense and soooooo moist! It feels more like a brownie than a cake and the glaze is very rich. But the flavor is incredible! If you like chocolate at all, you should make this cake at least once! Mmmm-mmmm-good!

In addition to the cola cake, I also used cherry cola for our main dish. I just love the crock pot. So easy and meat always come out so tender. For our dish, I threw 4 chicken breasts, 1 jar of barbeque sauce, 1/2 a can of cherry cola and a 1/2 cup of brown sugar into the crock pot for about 5 hours. Yum! I'm not a huge fan of bbq sauce myself, but this was a really flavorful combination! My daughter ate it right up. (My son, well, he's a lot harder to please!) But Eric and I liked it a lot, too. And what does a 5 year old picky-pete know about good food anyway! lol

Sorry about the grainy pic of the cake I took with my phone. I was more worried about trying these dishes than taking any pictures for the blog. Oh well. Chances are, I'll be making this again and, maybe, I'll remember a pic next time! (If I'm not too busy thinking about how good the cake will taste when it's done!)


  1. Oh, yummy! I'm with you, I love the fizz as well. Love Coke or Diet Coke. Thank you for sharing and thank you for the visit and sweet comment at The Dedicated House. It means the world. Would love it if you would share this at the Make it Pretty Monday party. Hope to see you at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
