soda and cake

Do you prefer your soda with your cake -- or in it?


When you're a corporation with the influence and history that The Coca-Cola Company has, you can pretty much call the shots. Bakers have long used the popular soft drink as a cake ingredient, but how about commissioning the Culinary Institute of America to develop recipes using Coke? The acclaimed cooking school crafted more than 75 food recipes for the beverage giant. Their recipe for Chocolate Coca-Cola cake includes a full 16-ounce bottle of Coca-Cola.
