This is an Excellent cake! I melted the marshmallows with the butter and coke first to do away with the individual marshmallows. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

My family really enjoyed this cake after our Thanksgiving dinner. It has a really nice flavor and I couldn't imagine using any other beverage other than coke for a coca cola cake. I will be making this often in my household. Thanks for a great recipe.

Looking at the ingredients, and being a chocoholic, I I was looking forward to a "Rocky Road" flavored cake. I used Pepsi instead of Coke and Pecans and it seemed to turn out ok althoug the 3 T. cocoa for a 9x13 inch cake hardly gave it enough chocolate flavor.
