Mexican Coke Chocolate Cake

{Follow Me on BLOGLOVIN}
Orange was always my go to flavor when I was a little pequenita (girl), my world was filled with orange flavored Everything!

Orange tic tacs were dispensed every hour on the hour to deal with stressful play dates, orange starburst papers lined my bedroom floor.

I'm pretty sure that orange Kool-Aid pumped through my veins for most of my preteen years ( I drank the stuff faithfully almost everyday!) 

As the years have gone on, my constant need for drinkable sugar has become a little more refined.  I'm so much more of a pure agua girl now, it's my go to drink of choice for almost every meal......except pizza. 

When I'm having a hot slice of ooey, gooey cheesy pizza I find myself yearning for a great big cold glass of ice filled Coca-Cola.

For what seems like forever I was completely satisfied with the American standard basic Coca-Cola , until I found out about Mexican Coke.

Oh yes, indeed there is such a thing, and it's so Rico y Delicoso!  That's Spanish for Super Awesome! 

It's packaged and Hecho en Mexico ( made in Mexico) with pure cane sugar, none of that corn syrupy sickening sweet stuff that they pump into American soft drinks. 

All I know is that if you can find it, try it.  You'll never want to go back to artificial sugar in your soda ever again.

After drinking and obsessing over Mexican Coke for a long time. I figured that anything that good on it's own, had to be nothing less than increible ( incredible) swirled & infused into a rich chocolate cake. 

And oh yes, the results was an ooey, gooey super moist chocolate cake, that made it pretty clear, that Mexican Coke has super awesome affects on almost everything it touches!

I love Mexican Coke so much more than traditional Coke and this cake looks delicious!

I've actually bought Mexican coke at Walmart because it has sugar in it instead of the less healthy high fructose corn syrup. And my husband loves a coke cake they serve at Cracker Barrel. So you got me. I am definitely trying this recipe. It looks exactly like something my hubby would love! Thanks. And it was fun hearing about your orange sugary childhood : )
