What is it about the dark elixir of Cola that we all love? At this time of the year we all start to get giddy about the Coca Cola lorry and the tune ‘Holidays Are Coming!’ makes us smile when it plays on the TV adverts. So the perfect time to make a Cola Cake with a festive look.
I made this in my new Nordic Ware piñata bundt tin.
225g unsalted butter
250g caster sugar
100g light brown muscovado sugar
2 large eggs
240g plain flour (All Purpose flour)
1 teaspoon salt
1.5 teaspoons baking powder
120g sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Cola Bottle Sweets
Pre heat the oven to 170 degrees.
Oil and flour a bundt tin. This recipe is for a 10 or 12 cup bundt pan.
Cream the butter and sugar.
Add the eggs one at a time.
Add one third of the dry ingredients and mix well.
Add the sour cream to the batter.
Add one third of the dry ingredients.
Add the cola and mix gently.
Add the remainder of the dry ingredients.
Pour into the prepared tin and bake for around 60 minutes.
Leave in the tin to cool so that the piñata cake keeps its shape.
I used fondant icing and icing writing pens to make my cake into a Christmas Pudding. Cola bottles and sugared sour cola bottles are hidden inside.
I don’t mind sharing the bundt love but if you use this recipe please credit my HumbugsHouse blog because coming up with recipes isn’t always straightforward!
