Coke Cake-Cracker Barrel Style

READY IN: 1hr 10mins




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