Do you have one of these handy-dandy fancy design cake pans? Or even plain ole every day bundt or cake pans and are kinda sick of the baked cake coming out in pieces that only a thick frosting can save?
Well, consider this cherry coke ‘Heritage Bundt’ cake with lemon glaze. No broken off pieces, no white splotches of flour.
And the secret is so very simple:
One. One. One.
Cake Pan Coating:
•1 tbsp solid shortening
•1 tbsp canola oil
•1 tbsp flour
Cherry Coke Cake:
•1 box cherry cake mix
•12 oz Coca Cola
•2 tbsp lemon juice
•1-1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
•1 tbsp milk
•1 tsp vanilla
Add the oil to the shortening and canola oil in a small bowl, then mix to combine with a fork. A few lumps will be fine.
Brush this mixture evenly over your chosen cake pan(s). There will be enough for one bundt pan or two round cake pans.
That is it!
Now, we can make our cake…
Pour the soda into the cake mix in a large bowl and mix according to package instructions. You do not need to add eggs, or oil, or anything else to the cake mix.
Pour the batter into your prepared cake pan and bake according to instructions on the cake box – about 30 minutes for this bundt.
Remove from the oven and cool completely before turning the cake out onto your chosen cake plate.
Nice cake – and no broken pieces!
Stir the glaze ingredients together until smooth, then drizzle over the cooled cake.
