Coca-Cola Cake Recipe

Hi all and a Happy Friday to you!!  Well, I figured I would keep the cake recipes going and, for today, I present you with a recipe for Coca-Cola cake.  I make this cake for a neighbor and she simply adores it.  She says it makes for a very moist and rich choclate cake.  I don't eat the cake, as I can't deal with the extra caffeine.  I've considered making it with caffeine-free Coke, but just haven't yet.  TTFN.



Coca-Cola Cake


For Cake:

1 C Coca-Cola
1/2 C oil (again I use Wesson best blend)
1 stick butter
3 Tbsp cocoa
2 C sugar
1/2 tsp salt 
2 eggs
1/2 C buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

For Frosting:

1 stick butter
3 Tbsp cocoa
6 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 (16 oz) package powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease and flour (well, I use extra cocoa) a 9x13 pan.

In a saucepan, bring Coca-Cola, oil, butter and cocoa to a boil.  In a seperate large bowl, combine the sugar, flour and salt.  Pour the hot mixture over the flour mixture and beat well (again, I use my KitchenAid).  Add eggs, buttermilk, baking soda and vanilla and beat well.  Pour into your prepared pan and bake fro 20-25 minutes or until done.  Cool on a wire rack while making the frosting.

To make the frosting, in a saucepan, combine butter, cocoa and milk.  Heat until butter melts, then beat in the other ingredients (for this, I just use a hand mixer).  Spread this warm mixture on the cake when it's just cool to the touch.
