Coca Cola Sheet Cake

  • Yield 16 servings

"This Coca Cola cake recipe was a family favorite in the Brown home. Mother would cook the cakes when I was a child at the age of 10."

Ingredients

Cake:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup margarine
1 cup cola
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten
Icing:
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup margarine
6 tablespoons cola
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Generously grease and flour a 16 x 11-inch pan. Combine the flour, granulated sugar, and baking soda in a mixing bowl. In a saucepan, combine the margarine, cola, and cocoa powder, and stir until boiling. Remove from the heat, and stir into the flour mixture. Add the marshmallows, buttermilk, vanilla, and eggs, and mix well. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the center is set.
  2. While the cake is baking, prepare the icing. Measure the confectioners’ sugar into a mixing bowl. Melt the margarine in a saucepan. Add the cola and cocoa, and stir until boiling. Remove from heat, and pour over the confectioners’ sugar. Add the vanilla, and beat on high speed for 2 minutes. Stir in the pecans, and pour over the hot cake.
