Coca-Cola Cake

Are you looking for a different Thanksgiving dessert to serve along with the pumpkin pie? Look no further. This Coca Cola Cake will have your guests (and you) going back for seconds.....or maybe even thirds. :)

Does this cake taste like Coke? Not really, but the delicious carbonated beverage makes for a wonderfully moist and delicious cake. Of course, the buttermilk helps with that as well. The cake is not too sweet, but when paired with the awesome chocolate frosting, it's a beautiful combination that you will definitely be thankful for.

Coca Cola Cake
Recipe from my Mom's archives

1 cup Coca Cola
1/2 cup veg. oil
1 stick butter
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease and flour a 9x13 cake pan. Set aside.

In a medium sized saucepan, mix the Coca Cola, oil, butter and cocoa powder and bring to a boil.

In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar, flour, and salt. Pour the boiling Coca Cola mixture over the flour mixture and beat well. Add the eggs, buttermilk, baking soda and vanilla; beat well until combined.

Pour the mixture into the prepared cake pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for about 10 minutes before frosting.

Chocolate Frosting

1 stick butter
3 tablespoon cocoa powder
6 tablespoon heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 3/4 cup powdered sugar

In a medium sized saucepan, combine the butter, cocoa powder and heavy cream. Heat until the butter melts. Beat in the remaining ingredients and spread on the cake while it's warm. Be quick because the frosting starts to set up pretty fast. Let the cake and frosting cool completely before cutting.
