I’m going to tell you right away, that I didn’t think that there was any way that a can of Coke and a cake mix would make a good cake. I was wrong. This Chocolate Peppermint 2 Ingredient Coke Cake is pretty amazing.
First, it’s amazing because this whole cake is made from two ingredients. Hello! I could use that during the holidays! Second, it’s amazing because this cake tastes great! Fast, easy and good? That makes for happy elves.
Chocolate Peppermint 2 Ingredient Coke Cake
Here’s how you make it: Simply pour a box of your favorite cake mix into a bowl, I’m using chocolate, and then pour in one 12 oz can of Coca-Cola®. Stir the two ingredients together.
I decided to halve the batter and pour it into two 9″ greased and floured cake pans. You really don’t even have to go to that much trouble. This cake is very moist and might make a better sheet cake. So, save yourself the trouble of dividing the mix and flouring the pans. Grease a 9×13″ pan and make a sheet cake! Bake your cake according to the instructions on the box.
I’m terrible at icing cakes, so my husband did this one. He made a buttercream icing and added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract. That combination gave the icing a perfect peppermint flavor without overpowering the flavor of the cake. I was so impressed. Then he crushed some candy canes and sprinkled them over the top of the cake. Can’t you see making this precious cake for your holiday party? It’s so simple and perfect for the season!
I told you it was moist! This cake is not easy to cut and keep in one piece, so again, I say, forego the layered cake idea and make a simple sheet cake. Easy as…well, not pie…but it’s as easy as a 2 ingredient cake…and that’s super easy!
You could create a variety of different cake flavors just by changing the cake mix. Mix and match cake mix and soda ingredients! The Coca-Cola® Easy as Cake! Recipe recipe suggests trying Coca-Cola®, Diet Coke®, Coke Zero™ or Cherry Coke® with chocolate cake mix, or Sprite®, Sprite Zero™ or Fanta with white cake mix. Get creative and see what you can make!
