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.

JoEllen, I hope your cake turns out great. It's a big hit at my house, work and organizations I am a memeber of!
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!
