I won this cake at a fund-raising auction at my husband's school. It was soooo yummy and rich! The mom who made it gave me the recipe, too, with the following note:

"The success of this cake is while you are baking and mixing, you need to sip on a classic coke. Then after the cake is cooled (and after licking the topping kettle clean) you sit down with a large glass of cold milk and eat a piece of cake - ahhh!! If you ever need testers, call me!"

How to Make Coke Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. MIX BY HAND!
    Sift flour and sugar together in large bowl.
  2. Combine butter, shortening or oil, coke, cocoa and heat until butter is melted. Pour over flour mixture and stir well.
  3. Add buttermilk, baking soda, beaten eggs, vanilla and marshmallows. Mix well and spoon into well greased 13x9 inch pan. Marshmallows will tend to gather together in one section - distribute throughout pan. Bake at 350ºF for 45 minutes or until cake tests done. Spread topping on hot cake.
  4. TOPPING DIRECTIONS:
    About 5 minutes before cake is done, combine butter, coke and cocoa in a sauce pan and bring to boil. Stir in remaining ingredients and pour over hot cake while it is still hot in the pan. Topping will be thin, but it will thicken. Leave in pan until cooled.
