Ingredients

Classic Coca-Cola Cake Recipe

  • 1 cup Coca-Cola
  • 1 cup butter or margarine softened
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Chocolate Fudge Icing

  • 1 stick real butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 lb powdered sugar

Instructions

Classic Coca-Cola Cake Recipe

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large pot, bring the butter, Coca-Cola and cocoa powder to a boil whisking until combined. Remove from heat.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, mini marshmallows and salt.
  • Quickly add the flour mixture into the pot and mix until combined and marshmallows are almost melted. It's okay if some marshmallows are not completely melted.
  • In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, baking soda and vanilla. Add into the pot and continue to fold the mixture until everything is combined.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and rub with butter. Pour the batter into the pan.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes. Remove before the center is fully cooked! You don't want a toothpick to come out clean... you want it to come out with a little cake on it.
  • Let it cool completely, then place it upside down on a platter until the cake tips out.

Chocolate Fudge Icing

  • In a saucepan heat the butter, cocoa powder and milk until the butter
  • has melted. Remove from heat and add in the vanilla and powdered sugar.
  • Mix very well. You can also use an electric mixer to really mix it up. The texture should be smooth.
