I have had a bite of this and it is luscious. Can't wait to try it myself. I don't have any coke around, so I am going to use Pepsi. I'm sure it will work out great.

How to Make CRACKER BARRELS COCA COLA CAKE

Scrape the sides of the bowl time to time to get all ingredients into the frosting. If the frosting seams a little dry add a little more coca cola. Frost warm cake and serve with vanilla ice cream.
