Coca-Cola Carrot Cake
2 c Flour sifted
1 t Baking soda
1/2 ts Salt
2 tb Cocoa
1 1/2 c Sugar
1/2 c Vegetable oil
3/4 c Coca-cola
1 1/2 ts Vanilla
2 1/4 c Raw carrots grated
1 c Nuts chopped
1 c Coconut flaked
3/4 c Sugar
2 ts Cocoa
6 tb Coca-cola
6 tb Butter
1 tb Light corn syrup
1/2 ts Vanilla
Mix all the dry ingredients together. Beat the eggs well; add sugar,
oil, 3/4 cup cola, and vanilla and beat well. Stir in the dry
ingredients until smooth, then add the carrots, nuts and coconut.
Mix well. Bake in a greased and lightly floured 13 x 9 pan in a
preheated 350ºF oven for 40-50 minutes, until cake tests done.
Remove from oven and prick hot cake all over with a fork, then pour
the cola syrup slowly, evenly over the top. Serve warm or room
temperature with lightly sweetened-vanilla flavored whipped cream.
Coca-Cola Syrup: Combine sugar, cocoa, cola, butter and corn syrup
in saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Boil, stirring, until thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Add vanilla
extract. Remove from heat and pour, hot, over hot cake.
