Dessert Coke Cake

Over Christmas, my boyfriend went on a holiday to America with his family.  While there, he saw something on the menu in some restaurant which seemed interesting to him - a coke cake.  Coke, here being Coca-cola, not the drug, just to be clear.  So since he got back, he's been asking me to make one.  I recently got super bored and made a coke cake.

To be completely honest, this isn't a cake-cake, it's a dessert cake.  That probably makes no sense.  To explain - it's really moist and doesn't have the texture of any cake I've ever made.  And in all honesty, I didn't even like it.  Not sure what there was about it, but without icecream, this cake was bleh.  But with icecream, this cake was amazing.

It was also the weirdest batter I've ever made - it wasn't a normal cake batter - I poured a liquid into my springform pan.  So I lined said springform pan with baking paper, put the pan on a tray and hoped for the best.

I got my recipe from here!

Until next time,

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…
