Pepsi in Cake? This was my oldest sons reaction when I told him what I was making Saturday morning. Followed quickly by something like: That’s disgusting and I’m not eating it. Fastforward about an hour and half of the Chocolate Pepsi Bundt Cake was gone and I was instead hearing: That cake is amazing. Oh, boys! Gotta love them.
We’ve all heard of the recipes where people use soda in place of other ingredients and I had been wondering how the cake would turn out. I am in no way claiming that this cake is any where near to healthy but it’s so delicious! Topped with a yummy chocolate ganache frosting and you have the perfectly easy dessert!
