Coke Cakes Endure In The Southern States

March 8, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A 1960s ad slogan proclaimed that “Things go better with Coke.” In the South, those things include cake recipes, like the chocolate-flavored Coca-Cola cake (a staple at Cracker Barrel restaurants). Both professional and home bakers have added Coca-Cola – only the sugar-sweetened variety works – to their recipes since the 1950s, usually substituting the 130-year-old beverage brand for milk, oil or other liquids in the cake’s batter. A dash of it is also used to moisten a confectioner’s sugar-based icing. A new recipe circulating on the Internet offers simplicity with debatable results: cake mix, can of Coke, cup of yogurt, and a can of fruit. The quick version, however, lacks one key trait: the “reward” of baking something from scratch.
