More sinful eating, as heard on CFCW

Thanks to Adriana Trigiani, one of my favourite authors, I can now stand next to my husband and declare myself a CFCW Recipe of the Morning winner.

I first discovered the following recipe when reading Trigiani's Milk Glass Moon, and it was the out-of-the-ordinary main ingredient that really intrigued me.

Sinful? Very.

But Trigiani's from the South, yo. So would you expect anything less than sinful??

CAKE:

2 cups plain flour
2 cups sugar
1 cup Coca-Cola

A pinch of salt
