I have for you…
Your favorite drink as a kid and dessert all-in-one.
I went to dinner with a friend last week that ordered a Cherry Coke, but unfortunately he wasn’t successful. They didn’t have it. Assholes.
That reminds me – do you remember making “suicides” as a kid? At the movies or wherever, we used to fill big ass cups full of every single fountain soft drink. I think it made us feel rebellious. In our minds, by doing that we were really being badasses.
So, for whatever reason, cherry coke stayed on my mind after that for a day or two and I had to figure out something to make with it. After a good bit of googling, I found this recipe from Brown Eyed Baker and knew that’s what I wanted to do.
These have a cherry filling, a coca-cola sugar glaze and frosting. A sugar/coke lover’s dream. You need these cupcakes.
One thing I didn’t expect – the coke in the batter made these SO.DAMN.MOIST.
