Chocolate Velvet Honey Cake ?

Has anyone made the Chocolate Velvet Honey Cake by Marcy Goldman? It looks interesting so I just wanted to get some feedback before I attempt it. One of the ingredients is Coca Cola (flat), which I cant imagine using as I hate coke. Also it specifies a 9 or 10 inch tube pan for baking in - I dont have any tube pan, so what can I use instead?

  1. This is a fabulous honey cake, and I have made one for the last few years. Everyone who comes loves it! Don't worry about the coca cola, it doesn't lend a distinct flavor. I do reduce the cloves a bit though. The chopped chocolate is great in it -- but I used mini-morsels once as a last minute substitution. And as we are not kosher, I make the dairy ganache.
