Does Coca-Cola Cake really taste like Coke?

My grandmother sent me a recipe for Coca-Cola Cake. I've never tried it before but my mother in law loves Coke and wondered if she might like it. Does it taste like Coke?

  • I guess you will only know by making it and tasting it. Sounds gross to me

  • Not sure what that is, but I have made Diet Coke cake as a means of cutting out the oil and egg yolk, and it doesn't taste anything like the soda that went into it.

  • To me the Coke was just an easy shortcut. It tasted like chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. But, chocolate and cola are kind of similar flavors, so MIL will probably like it. I like the last poster's idea of Cherry Coke - I'm gonna try that.

  • My mom makes this cake and I do like it; I'm not a big fan of sweets. It's my mom's favorite. I think she adds vanilla extract and cherries to it.
