I would like a recipe for a Coca Cola cake. Thank you.
Dominic Miranda, Palm Harbor
Valrico resident Sandy Sullivan shares a cola cake recipe she's had since the 1970s. This is an ever popular cake and it seems many are familiar with it. It's super easy to make and is delicious. The one thing I want to stress when making this cake and icing is to have your mixer on the very lowest speed when incorporating the cola and — even if you do — be careful because its still likely to splash out of the bowl. The marshmallows magically melt while the cake bakes and any sort of marshmallow pockets on the top will be covered with the icing. If you have Pepsi instead of a Coke, use it. Any cola will do. The icing will set rather quickly so make it just before you plan to ice the cake.
Madeline Ventimiglia of Largo would like to make fresh mozzarella. If anyone can help, please share your technique.
