Coca-Cola Cake

Doesn't the title sound so good you could eat the words right off the screen. MMM.... I do have to warn you ahead of time this cake does use 3 cubes of butter. (eek)

What you need:

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup Coke (not diet)
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup buttermilk (see picture below for dried buttermilk)
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS: (pictures below)
Mix flour and sugar in a large bowl. Melt butter in saucepan, add Coke and Cocoa and bring to a boil. Stir in to flour mixture. Blend in buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, baking soda, and salt. Pour into greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Sprinkle with marshmallows and bake an additional 3 to 5 minutes until melted. Cool cake completely and frost with Coca-Cola frosting (below)

1/2 cup butter
6 tablespoons Coke
2 tablespoons Cocoa
3 1/2 cups powder sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla


Melt butter. Add Coke and cocoa and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and mix into powdered sugar. Add vanilla and mix until smooth and creamy. Spread onto cake.

 (I like this for buttermilk because I rarely if ever have buttermilk on hand. My cute neighbor recently introduced me to this and its FAB! all you do is add water to give you instant buttermilk and it last for 3 years in the fridge. It tastes the exact same, you will never know it was a powder form. I bought this at my local Wal-Mart)

Start off by melting the butter.

Then add the most important ingredients...

Bring it to a boil

Then stir it into the flour and sugar mixture

Pour into a greased 9x13 pan
 (can anyone guess my last name lol)

 after 33-35 minutes add some mallows to cover the whole pan (more than picture shown)

Take out of the oven once the mallows look like this

Frost with the Coca-Cola frosting

and admire it for a minute. . . .

Then eat it! MMM

* another warning. I ate that wonderful piece you see in the picture above and I am not one to drink soda or caffeine and just that small amount kept me up past 12 pm and I am normally a 10 pm girl. Then again, I swear if I just look at a bottle of diet coke I will be up past 12 :)
