This Cocoa Cola Bundt Cake recipe by Vallery Lomas doesn't add soda directly to the batter. Instead, Lomas makes a concentrated Coca-Cola syrup and mixes it into both the cake and the icing.

DirectionsMake the cola syrup:Step 1Bring cola and sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high. Boil, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 1 cup, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice. Reserve 1/4 cup cola syrup in a liquid measuring cup for glaze.

Sweetened whipped cream and amarena cherries (optional) Directions Make the cola syrup: Step 1 Bring cola and sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high.
