CHOCOLATE LOVERS DREAM: COCA COLA CAKE
A recipe for the popular Coca-Cola cake, made with Coca-Cola and buttermilk and mini marshmallows. This is no doubt the best cake I have ever made. My family loves it, I started making it for Christmas in 1977, been an all time favorite ever since, when ever I ask them what dessert you want mama to make it is this one.
2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup Coca-Cola
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon cocoa
6 tablespoons Coca-Cola
1 box confectioner's sugar,
1/2 cup chopped pecans (Toasted are better)
Grease and flour a 9 x 13-inch pan and set aside.
In a large bowl combine flour and sugar.
In a saucpan combine the cocoa, Coca-Cola, butter, and marshmallows; bring to a boil. Combine the boiled mixture with the flour and sugar mixture.
In a separate bowl mix eggs, buttermilk, baking soda, and vanilla; add to the first mixture. Pour into prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes, until cake tests done.
In a saucepan, bring butter, cocoa, and Coca-Cola to a boil. Stir in the sugar and mix well. Stir in nuts. Spread over the cake while both cake and frosting are still warm.
