    Heather'sKitchen's Note:

    I've tried many recipes for coco-cola cakes and just couldn't find one like Cracker Barrel's. I finally just adapted a recipe into this cake. My husband requests this for his birthday cake every year. My MIL says it's even better than Cracker Barrel! Imagine that, a compliment from the MIL! This cake is amazing warm served with vanilla ice cream but I'm told it's even better the next day.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    First Frosting

    Second Frosting

    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 9 tablespoons cola, this should be the remaining cola left in a 12oz can
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 4 cups confectioners' sugar


    1. 1
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    3. 3
      Spray a 9x13 glass pan with nonstick spray.
    4. 4
      Combine flour, granulated sugar and baking soda in mixing bowl.
    5. 5
      In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup butter, 5 tablespoons cocoa and 1 cup cola beverage to boiling. (whisk together as it melts).
    6. 6
      Pour over the flour mixture and mix thoroughly. I just use a whisk for this because it comes together so easily.
    7. 7
      Add buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
    8. 8
      Pour into prepared 9x13 pan.
    9. 9
      Bake for 40 minutes.
    10. 10
      During last 10 minutes of baking prepare frosting.
    11. 11
      Prepare Second Frosting:.
    12. 12
      Place 5 cups confectioners' sugar in a mixing bowl.
    13. 13
      In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup butter, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder and 9 tablespoons cola beverage. Whisk together. Heat to boiling.
    14. 14
      Remove from heat, stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
    15. 15
      Pour over 4 cups confectioners' sugar.
    16. 16
      Mix well with a whisk.
    17. 17
    18. 18
      Remove cake from oven.
    19. 19
      Immediately frost with marshmallow cream. Go slow. This will prevent tearing the cake. As the fluff warms a bit it will spread easily.
    20. 20
      Slowly pour warm coco-cola frosting over marshmallow fluff.
    21. 21
      It's best to let this cake cool for about an hour before cutting into it.

      We really love this cake. It's such a favorite here at home. I did make a change... I didn't do the marshmallow, but poked holes in the cake -- then poured the frosting on top. That turned out fabulous. Thanks so much for a keeper and a great country/comfort food. Five stars all the way!

      Holy Cola Cake, Batman, that's good stuff! Honestly delicious. I made it as directed. The only thing I would change is that next time I'll leave out the marshmallow cream. It was delicious but too intensely sweet for me (and I have a giant, cavity-ridden sweet tooth). But still, serious yum.

      Moist and chocolatey. I've had this cake at Cracker Barrel and they never had a marshmallow layer in it. However, I decided to try it with the marshmallow cream anyway. Very good, but very sweet. You can skip this step and the cake would still be good.
