Chocolate Cola Cake

This recipe includes two of my favorite things...pop and chocolate, so how could I go wrong?   It was moist, delicious and was still great the next day when the missionaries came over and finished it!! I am glad they liked it!!(and it was less I ate!)  The whole family LOVED it!  You cannot even tell that it has the pop in it.  Next time I am going to try Cherry Coke Zero in it! YUM!!
Chocolate Cola Cake
1 package white cake mix
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
2 eggs
1 cup cola ( I used Coke Zero)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  You also want your cola to be a room temperature not cold!!
Grease a 9 x 13 pan.
In a large mixer bowl, combine cake mix, cocoa, eggs, cola, milk and oil.  Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.  Fold in the marshmallows. Spread batter evenly into the prepared pan.  Bake for 40-45 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. 
 Cool for 1 hour before frosting.
Chocolate Cola Frosting
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1/3 cup cola
3-3 1/4 cup powered sugar
In a medium saucepan, melt butter.  Add cocoa and cola, stirring until smooth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and gradually add enough powdered sugar to make a smooth spreading consistency.  Spread evenly over cake.  Cook completely before cutting.
*If you would like add 3/4 cup nuts to the frosting.
I am not a huge cake eater, but I really liked this one!!

  2. I've made Coca-Cola cake before from scratch. I hadn't seen a recipe with a cake mix before this. This sounds fun and easy and I like the texture the soda gives the cake! I'm bookmarking this one for a rainy day!

  13. Well that just sounds weird and awesome at the same time. Cake with pop in it? I'm all over that! And marshmallows to boot. Definitely one we will try!!!

  14. Yum, I love cake! I worked in a bakery for a while and one of the tricks I learned there was to use soda pop in place of the water. We always used Coke in chocolate cakes and Sprite in "light" cakes. Flavored sodas were always good too. Your cake looks beautiful!
