I found this recipe in the February 2009 All You ~ a magazine I got in one of my niece’s fundraisers.
In a pan, combine 12 TBSP Unsalted Butter, 2 TBSP Unsweetened Cocoa Powder and 2/3 Cup Coke Cola ~ cook over low heat and stir until butter is melted.
Whisk together 2 Cups Flour, 2 Cups Sugar, 1/2 tsp Baking Soda and 1/4 tsp of Salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk 2 Large Eggs at room temp, 1/2 Cup Buttermilk at room temp, and 1-1/2 tsp Vanilla.
Once chocolate mixture has melted, stir in flour mixture and then the egg mixture…whisk together.
Pour cake batter into a 9×13 greased and floured baking pan (I used the PAM Baking Spray). Bake in a 350F oven for 35-45 minutes, until a toothpick comes clean.
For the Cola Frosting ~
Cook 4 TBSP Unsalted Butter, 2 TBSP Unsweetened Cocoa and 6 TBSP of Coke Cola in a small pan until all ingredients are melted and well combined.
Sift 2 Cups Powdered Sugar into a medium bowl.
Whisk chocolate mixture into sugar and add 1 tsp vanilla.
Once cake is out of oven ~ poke holes all over top of the hot cake with a fork (just don’t go VooDoo on the cake like I did…most of the frosting ending up inside the cake!) and pour warm frosting over cake.
Let cool in pan on a wire rack.
It’s a very tasty and moist cake!
