Chocolate Coca Cola Cake
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
for the icing
3 heaped tablespoons cocoa powder
400g icing sugar (again recipe calls for golden icing sugar)
Preheat oven to 180 c, and prepare a 24cm springform cake tin (I lined it with baking paper)
Sift flour, cocoa and bicarb into a large bowl.
Slowly melt butter and cola in a saucepan, then slowly add this to the dry ingredients along with the milk, eggs and vanilla, stirring all the time.
Once thoroughly but gently combined, pour mixture into the prepared tin and bake for about 40 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean (it took a little longer than 40 minutes in my oven). Leave in tin on a wirewrack for about 10 minutes, then remove from tin. Allow to cool completely.
To make the icing : melt butter along with cola and cocoa in a saucepan. Pour this mixture into the icing sugar and beat until smooth. Ice the cooled cake. I decorated the cake with coke bottle lollies.
