Coca-Cola Carrot Cake



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup Coca-Cola
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 1/4 cups raw carrots, grated
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup coconut, flaked

Coca-Cola Syrup

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 6 tablespoons Coca-Cola
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Cake: Mix all the dry ingredients together. Beat the eggs well; add sugar, oil, Coca-Cola and vanilla extract and beat well. Stir in the dry ingredients until smooth, then add the carrots, nuts and coconut. Mix well.
  2. Bake in a greased and lightly floured 13 x 9-inch pan in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for 40 to 50 minutes, until cake tests done.
  3. Remove from oven and prick hot cake all over with a fork, then pour the Coca-Cola Syrup slowly and evenly over the top. Serve warm or room temperature with lightly sweetened-vanilla flavored whipped cream.
  4. Coca-Cola Syrup: Combine sugar, cocoa, Coca-Cola, butter and corn syrup in a saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring, until thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add vanilla extract. Remove from heat and immediately pour over hot cake.
