Personal Notes:
I have forgotten to boil the coke for the cake batter with good results.

I have also substitued lemon cake mix, lemon pudding and 7-up for the cake and baked in a bunt pan. I then made a lemon drizzle of fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar and poured over the completely cooled cake.
