I shared with you a few weeks back about my kids' love of Coca-Cola World and our favorite Coca-Cola Cake recipe: http://mealplanningwithconnie.blogspot.com/2009/06/its-real-thing-coca-cola-cake.html

Here's a quicker Coca-Cola Brownies recipe that has a nice little touch of Coke flavor. Logan really likes these!

Coca-Cola Brownies

Coca-Cola Brownies

Prepare a package of family-size (for 9x13 pan) according to package directions, substituting Coca-Cola for the water.

When done, remove brownies from oven and pour icing over warm brownies. Allow icing to "set."

Icing:

Melt 3 tablespoons butter in medium saucepan.
Stir in 2 tablespoons cocoa until dissolved.
Add 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar, 2 tablespoons Coca-Cola and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Stir until smooth. Pour over warm cake. Let set until firm.

  1. First, thank you so much for commenting on my P31 devotional today. I love knowing the Lord used it to speak to a woman's heart.

    Second, I am SO glad I stopped by your blog. I am a HUGE Coca Cola fan and love this recipe. I will have to make it for my family. Can't wait to make it.

    Blessings,

  2. I voted that I don't drink "Cokes" because I mostly drink sweet tea. I will occasionally drink a "drink", and everybody else at my house loves Pepsi.

    Coca Cola cake is one of the most decadent things I've ever put in my mouth--I haven't made one in a while...I think I'm gonna put it on the weekend menu! (My aunt, who gave me the recipe, called it "Co-cola" cake. I love the different names we use in the South for soft drinks.)

  3. Susan,

    Your aunt would fit in very well around here!! Lots of folks around here say "Co-cola," too!!

    Is your hand better - from the cut last week?

    Many blessings ~ Connie

  4. Pepsi sure had a dismal showing in your survey! My son would be appalled...he's 14 and he is on a Coke boycott, just because Pepsi is better! ;)

    So, tell me, would Pepsi work in your Coca-Cola cake? I'm sure the purists out there would say "No way!"
