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!!

  1. OH goodness you just put Rick's two favorite things in one recipe :)

  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!

  3. Isn't this such a great cake. I made it not too long ago!! Looks beautiful.

  4. I make Coca Cola cake too but I never thought to put marshmallows in it. That's a good idea!! Yummm!

  5. That looks like a great recipe. I'll have to save it in my folder of recipes to try. Have a great day.

  6. I have a Coca-Cola cookbook. It has many fun recipes in it. I love the chocolate cola cake:)

  7. Love the idea of cherry coke for a bit more flavor. What a cool idea! Thanks!

  8. I've heard wonderful things about making cakes with cola. I really need to try it sometime.

    I'd love for you to share this recipe on my linky for Sweet Tooth Friday!

  9. Perfect chocolate recipe! I knew when I went to your blog today you posted something fantastic! Can't wait to try this one!

  10. Hi Tiffanee,
    We just love a Chocolate Cola Cake. I would like to try your recipe, I think it is a little different from mine and looks great. Thank you so much for sharing at Full Plate Thursday and please come back!

  11. ooo. That sounds interesting and looks delicious! I'll have to give this a try - soon. Thanks for sharing the recipe! :-)

  12. Yum Tiffanee! I have seen this cake recipe in many of my cookbooks and often then I should make it....I love that you have made it and showed me that I should definitely do so! You have sealed it for me with your approval. :-)

  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!

  15. Chocolate Cola Cake is a favorite of mine, so moist! Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
