Coca-Cola and chocolate as cake ingredients sounds almost to good to be true — and a bit heavenly – right?? This Coca-Cola Chocolate Cake is made with a lot of butter as well and an amazing icing. After all that, you have a cake to die for!!
Coca-Cola Chocolate Cake Ingredients:
4 cups of all purpose flour
8 tablespoons sweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (the original recipe calls for 3 but we aren’t huge cinnamon fans)
1 tablespoon of salt
2 tablespoons of baking soda
4 cups of sugar
4 sticks of butter
1 cup of buttermilk (We made our own with 1 cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar mixed together)
4 teaspoons of vanilla
2 cups of Coca-Cola
Coca Cola Chocolate Cake Icing Ingredients:
1 stick of butter
1⁄2 cup of Coca-Cola
6 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 16oz. box of powdered sugar
1 cup of chopped pecans (optional)
Coca-Cola Chocolate Cake Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour an 11×17 inch pan (I used a Pyrex 4.8 Quart pan)
Combine flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and sugar. Set aside.
In a pan, heat the butter with the Coca-Cola until the butter has melted.
Add eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk. Mix well.
Add the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and beat until mixed well (I use my stand mixer) *note the batter will be thick
Pour batter into the baking pan and bake for 30 minutes. (You could make 2 tube pans baked for 60 minutes or 24 cupcakes baked for 15 minutes.)
Coca-Cola Chocolate Cake Icing Directions:
In a saucepan, heat together the butter and Coca-Cola. Be sure not to boil.
Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Pour icing over the cake. You must ice this cake warm!
