My Favorite Recipes: Coca-Cola Cake

August 28, 2010


2 cups flour

2 cups sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup margarine

3 tablespoons baking cocoa

1 cup Coca-Cola (do not insult me by replacing this with Pepsi, Jive, or anything lesser!)

2 eggs

1 teaspoon soda

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1/2 cup margarine

3 tablespoons baking cocoa

6 tablespoons Coca-Cola

4 cups confectioners’ sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Sift flour, sugar and salt into mixer bowl. Combine 1 cup margarine, 3 tablespoons cocoa and 1 cup Coca-Cola in saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until margarine melts. Pour over flour mixture; mix well. Add eggs, beating until well blended. Stir in mixture of soda and buttermilk. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla; mix well. Pour into greased and floured 9×13-inch cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees (or 177, depending on where you live) for 40 to 45 minutes or until cake tests done.

Combine remaining 1/2 cup margarine, remaining 3 tablespoons cocoa and remaining Coca-Cola in small saucepan. Heat until margarine melts, stirring constantly. Do not boil. Remove from heat. Stir in confectioners’ sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat until smooth.

Spread hot icing over warm cake.

Yield: 12 servings
