Recipe by MarieRynr
This cake is moist and delicious. It's okay to substitute another cola such as Pepsi for the coke, but under no circumstances should diet versions of the drink be used.

Hi MarieAlice, I really enjoyed your cake recipe. I changed a couple of things, I used 1 cup of white sugar, and 1 cup of brown sugar. I also added 1/3 cup of cocoa, instead of the 2 tablespoons. Delicious cake! Took it to a family gathering at the lake, and it was devoured! Thanks! Hazeleyes
