Charleston's Famous Cola Cake

Jestine’s Coca-Cola Cake is soul food at its best. Featured on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, Jestine’s Kitchen serves up lowcountry cooking inspired by Jestine Matthews, a long-time Charleston resident known for her classic Southern recipes and lived to be 112. Did that have something to do with the cola cake? …The jury is still out on that one.

This very Charleston treat is made with Coca-Cola and drizzled with a cola frosting for a rich chocolate cake that’s as dense as a brownie. It’s a beloved recipe in country cooking where Coke is often used as an alternative for sugar. Now for the very first time, Jestine’s is shipping their legendary Coca-Cola Cake nationwide!
