I actually switched with Christina this week, because I thought this recipe looked so good. Just the idea of it seemed delicious to me. How could you go wrong with Coke and Jam? It would be like an oven roasted version of the Cafe Rio Pork.
The recipe itself came together very easily. Every one of my kids (with the exception of the new addition) ate it up. For me though, something was missing. In the interest of full disclosure I used leftover Diet Pepsi instead of Coke. Since I never drink cola I ‘m not sure what effect that would have. Could the thing my taste buds missed be the sugar?!
The other thing that I need to remember next time I make a recipe like this is to line the pan with parchment paper. I hate cleaning out the mess of baked on jam and soda! All in all though, I think I would make this again. Super easy combined with super happy kids is always a winner!
