Coke Cake

The case of the disappearing coca cola cake was solved this week when a puzzled home school mom called to ask how she ended up with my cake pan!


Since the cake was such a big hit the first time we made it, Dagmar made another this week while some friends were visiting.

It disappearing again, but this time I watched it go- piece by moist and delicious piece!

Coca Cola Cake

Combine 1/2 cup margarine, 1/2 cup shortening, 3 tablespoons baking cocoa, 1 cup coca cola and 1 1/2 cup mini marshmallows in small saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and pour over 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of flour. Stir well.

Add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of buttermilk, and 1 teaspoon of soda. Mix well.

Pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pan.

Frost with Coca Cola frosting.

Coca Cola Frosting

Combine 1/2 cup margarine, 3 tablespoons baking cocoa, and 6 tablespoons of coca cola in saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Add 16 ounces of powdered sugar and beat till smooth.

Keep an eye on the finished cake- now you see it- now you don’t!
