all purpose flour
1 1/2 c
butter (or margarine)
confectioners sugar (16 ozs)
chopped pecans (optional)
1PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Sift sugar and flour in a medium bowl. Add marshmallows. In a sauce pan, mix butter, oil, cocoa and Coca-cola. Bring to a boil and pour over dry ingredients;blend well. Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk just before adding to batter along with eggs and vanilla, mixing well.
2POUR into a well greased 13 x 9 inch pan and bake 35-45 minutes. Remove from oven and frost immediately.
3If you choose to use a bundt pan as I did you may need to cook up to 10 minutes more. Use a toothpick to test the middle. Make sure the toothpick comes out clean.
4For Frosting: Combine butter, cocoa and Coca-cola in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and pour over confectioners sugar, blending well.
Add vanilla and pecans (if using pecans), spread over hot cake. When cool, cut into squares and serve.

CinStraw, thanks for the complement. I love baking and photography so I try to take a photo of my baked goods as much as I can. Usually I use my phone for the picture because that's the only thing close by! haha!
Thanks Vanessa for sharing! I hope you all enjoy making it!
