I feel like I have an abundance of taste and odor memories, more so than the average person. Maybe it’s because I have a color blindness issue, and my sense of smell and taste are the ones picking up the slack. But the entire time I was making this Keto Cola Chocolate Cake, from mixing the ingredients, to eating the last bite, I couldn’t stop thinking about my dad.
It’s not because my dad is a master baker (the judges of the 1996 Cub Scout father-son bake-off can confirm that), but because he always has a coke in his hand and finished the day with a slice of cake, pie, or bowl of ice cream.
Growing up in the south, every carbonated soft drink was referred to as coke, but not to my dad. He had to have his coca-cola, nothing else would do for him. If we went out to a restaurant and he ordered a coke, and the server would ask him if Pepsi was okay, he’d say no and just order water instead.
I’ve been thinking a lot about my dad lately because he was just diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimer’s. With my degree in public health and this blog I keep up with a lot of health news and I can’t help but think the sheer amount of sugar my father was consuming on a daily basis contributed to the disease.
There have been tons of research studies making headlines linking Sugar and Alzheimer’s.
With this development, I am more thankful than ever I discovered Keto because it is inherently low in sugar. And I am thankful other companies and brands are removing sugar and artificial flavors from their product to make it simpler to enjoy the kinds of foods I’ve always loved without all the garbage ingredients. That’s one of the many reasons I was excited to partner with ZEVIA for this cake recipe.
ZEVIA’s sodas are one of my favorite products I routinely grab from the grocery store. They are zero calorie and zero sugar, and sweetened only with stevia, just like this cake so it won’t raise your blood sugar. Any my favorite part of this recipe absolutely has to be the icing which has this chocolate-y cola-y sweetness that (warning… pun ahead) is the icing on the cake.
