Coca-Cola Cake

Being a Coca-Cola collector, I have several cookbooks with yummy recipes using Coke as an ingredient. This particular one is in several of them. It is also similar to the Double Chocolate Fudge Coca-Cola Cake on the dessert menu at Cracker Barrel

Serve it up with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or dollop of Cool Whip and you can't go wrong. 

Cake Ingredients-

2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup oil
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup Coca-Cola
1 teaspoon baking soda
 1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Frosting Ingredients-

1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons cocoa
 6 tablespoons Coca-Cola
16 ounces powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift sugar and flour into a mixing bowl. Add marshmallows. In saucepan, mix butter,oil, cocoa and Coca-Cola. Bring to boil and pour over dry ingredients; blend well. Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk just before adding to batter. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. 

Pour into a well-greased 13 x 9 inch pan and bake approximately 40 minutes. (Cake is done when it begins to pull away from sides of pan and the center springs back when lightly pushed with finger.) Remove from oven and frost immediately. (Do not cool cake before frosting!)
