In a weird feat of cooking magic, you can actually bake brownies by substituting the wet ingredients (typically eggs and vegetable oil or butter) with a can of cola. The result is a dark, damp brownie with a fudgy yet springy crumb.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups (6 1/4 ounces) all purpose flour
  • 1 2/3 cups (12 1/4 ounces) sugar
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 can (12 ounces) Coca Cola

Procedures

  1. 1

    Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Either grease baking pan with oil or cover with tin foil.

  2. 2

    In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, and baking powder until combined. Add cola, a little at a time because it will foam, until incorporated and batter forms. Pour batter into pan and bake until a tester inserted into the middle of the pan comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Top will be slightly sticky.

    Let cool completely in pan then cut into squares.
