Yes, we're talking about Cola Cake.
Lately, we've spotted loads of takes on this delicious drink-themed creation popping up all over Insta - but we don't mean Coke-shaped cakes with levitating cans and logos.
Oh no, our tastebuds are tingling for Cola-flavoured cakes, which are generally baked in a tray and combine a rich and chocolatey cake mix with the sweet taste of fizzy cola.
In America, these cola-enriched tray cakes are a Southern classic. Apparently, the addition of fizzy pop results in a wonderfully moist, sweet and airy sponge. Yum!
These cakes typically come topped with a sticky, fudgey icing and can then be cut into big, gooey slabs that are perfect for sharing. Mmm.
Samantha Aleman, from Central Pennsylvania, is the food blogger behind The Lovely Life, and has perfected her recipe for Small Batch Cola Cake.
"This cake is simple - so simple you don't even have to frost it," she says. "I mean, not in the traditional sense. It has an utterly amazing boiled frosting that sets up like fudge on top of a warm cake.
"Talk about heaven. It's every chocolate lover's dream. Chocolatey. Fudgy. Rich."
Fancy giving the cake a whirl? Here's how:

We can't wait to give this a try. Can anyone else practically feel the sugar rush already?
