Coca Cola Cake
This is definitely a fun cake to make and eat. I've tried several of the "soda" cakes and they are all pretty good. This particular cake has several variations. It is not the original recipe from the Coca Cola site but from another site called Recipe Gold Mine. I will definitely try the one from the Coca Cola site in the future. This is similar to a chocolate cake with a little kick! But you don't taste the cola. It's great for a crowd and goes a long way.....
2 1/3 cups flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup Coca Cola
2/3 cup butter or margarine
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
Stir flour, sugar and baking soda, then set aside.
Bring coca cola, butter and cocoa powder to a boil over medium heat. Add hot mixture to flour mixture. Stir just until combined. Add remaining ingredients, except marshmallows. Stir until combined. Gently stir in marshmallows. They will float to the top. Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake for 30 - 40 minutes at 350 F.
Transfer cake to wire rack. Immediately spread Cocoa Topping over cake. Thoroughly cool cake on rack.
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup Coca Cola
2 1/2 cups confections sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (I omitted this)
Bring butter, cocoa powder and Coca Cola to boiling. Add remaining ingredients.
