Coca-Cola Cake: Make It!

+ enlarge

Coca-Cola cake is a specialty of mine and it is so darn tasty. I have been making this for about seven years now and it always turns out fantastic. The combination of the buttermilk, marshmallow, coca-cola, and all that butter, oil, and sugar just make it too good!

Coca-Cola Cake

2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
2 cups mini-marshmallows
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 cup Coca-Cola
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, sift together sugar and flour. Add marshmallows. In saucepan, mix butter, oil, cocoa, and Coca-Cola. Bring to a low boil and pour over dry ingredients; blend well. Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk just before adding to batter along with eggs and vanilla; mix well. Pour into a well-greased 9×13 pan and bake 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from oven and frost immediately.

Coca-Cola Frosting

1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
6 tablespoons Coca-Cola
1 16-ounce box powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Combine butter, cocoa, and Coca-Cola in saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour over powdered sugar in separate bowl. Blend well and add vanilla and pecans. Spread over hot cake. Let cool and cut into squares.

The secret to this cake is not to overcook it. When baked correctly, it is incredibly moist. Check it at 35 minutes.
