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.
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.
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.
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.
Add vanilla extract. Remove from heat and immediately pour over hot cake.
