I never liked Coke that much, but do like to drink Sprite occasionally; however my kids are fan of both drinks. They want Sprite to go with pizza and French fries to go with Coke. While grazing a local magazine, I found this Coca Cola cupcake with Coca Cola icing. Even last week when I went in for a routine cleaning of teeth in my dentist’s office, in the waiting room I was looking at a recipe in a magazine and thought it was interesting. Maybe being a food blogger, I have an eye to look for interesting recipes.
I made this coca cola cupcake with coca cola icing this thanksgiving, earlier planned for a pumpkin cheese cake which I dropped it. This recipe is adapted from here. It is really simple and easy to put together. I increased the coke amount and also made only 9 cupcakes. It needs all purpose flour, cocoa powder butter, brown sugar, buttermilk, vanilla extract and eggs. The addition of coke made the cupcakes made it more like fudgy touch also icing gave more chocolate flavor to it.
The cupcake itself is less sweet and you can have it as such. But If you want a little sweet touch, try this icing, it makes the cupcake more delectable.
Trust me at first I was not sure how Coke is going to behave in cupcake, it turned out be delicious. I had earlier tried beer in a quick bread, which I loved it. I am planning to make a potato beer soup if I get the time in the coming weeks. Maybe some time experiments will turn out delicious, and at times a complete flop. Still from each failure I learn something, even though at time complete flops are expensive.
This cupcake is really festive so give it try, frosting is almost like a glaze when you top it with Maraschino cherries it is complete. Give it try you will love it.
