Coke Cake

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup butter
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup Coke (not diet)
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup Coke (not diet)
4 cups powdered sugar
1 cup chopped pecans - optional

Place flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl.  Combine butter, cocoa powder, Coke and buttermilk in a small sauce pan.  Heat over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until it comes to a boil.  Remove from heat and pour over dry ingredients.  Mix well, then add eggs and vanilla.  Mix well and pour into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.  While cake is baking, combine butter, cocoa powder and Coke for the glaze and heat over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and whisk in powdered sugar until smooth.  Add pecans and mix well.  Pour over hot cake.  Let cool completely.

I sometimes will heat up the cake to serve and put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.  YUM!!

  1. This ranks up there with the 7-Up Cake! I love these kind of baked goods because it reminds me of the 50s when I grew up and baking got so experimental!

  2. I have tried baking cola chocolate before but wasn't perfect as I am expecting for a nice chocolate cake. Would love to try this recipe too.
