Coca cola cake

COCA  COLA CAKE

Have you ever heard of Coca Cola cake?

I just read this morning , and since coca cola is a popular drink, why not include this cake in my recipes list.

Coca Cola Cake

1 package plain white cake mix

4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

8 Tablespoons (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted

1 cup coca cola

½ cup buttermilk (Or substitute 1/2 C whole milk with a T of lemon juice stirred in)

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 ½ cups of marshmallows

Icing:

8 Tablespoons (1 stick) butter or margarine

4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/3 Cup coca cola

4 Cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

1 Cup chopped pecans (I left these out because my kids prefer this cake with no nuts, but pecans are GREAT in this!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly mist a 13×9-inch baking pan with vegetable oil spray. Set the pan aside.
Place the cake mix, cocoa powder, melted butter, cola, buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides with a spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 minutes.

The batter should be well blended. Fold in the marshmallows. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Place the pan it the oven.

Bake the cake until it springs back when lightly pressed with your finger and just starts to pull away from the sides of the pan, 40 to 42 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, prepare frosting while cake is still hot.

Place the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. As the butter melts, stir in the cocoa powder and cola. Let the mixture come to just a boil, stirring constantly, and then remove it from the heat. Stir in the confectioners’ sugar until the frosting is thick and smooth. Fold in the pecans.

Recipe  is from: blog called A Southern Plate.

Pour the frosting over the top of the cake, spreading it out with a rubber spatula so that it reaches the edges of the cake. Cool the cake for 20 minutes before serving.
