Mary Ellen's Easy Cola Cake

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Wineaux

When I saw Tipical Mary Ellen make this on her HGTV program, I didn't believe it could really taste good. But always being ready to try something different, I gave it a shot and for crying out loud, it IS good! I suppose that any flavor would be good, but I stick to German chocolate cake mix with Pecan/Coconut frosting. It is sweet, but, hey! it's CAKE!! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!
