December 3, 2020  Online Recipe Guide Avatar
For the cake:
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups turbinado sugar that has been ground fine in a food processor (measure after grinding)
3 heaping tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
generous pinch of baking soda
200 ml of cola drink (slightly more than 3/4 cup) (your measuring cup probably has ML on it)
1/4 cup milk
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
For the buttercream icing:
4 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered or icing sugar, sifted
2 to 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
2 tablespoons cola drink

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Butter two 9 inch round cake pans. Set aside. Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cocoa powder and baking soda together in a large bowl. In saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter and cola together. Add to the dry ingredients along with the milk, eggs and vanilla. Mix gently but thoroughly. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 33-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Beat all the icing ingredients together until smooth and fluffy. Spread over cooled cake.
