Weekend Treat {Coca-Cola Cake}

coca-cola cake

For some reason I was thinking about my 6th birthday recently & remembered the delectable Coca-cola cake my mom made me and my twin sister. I was in love. However, I'm not sure I have had it since & decided it was time to resurrect the chocolaty moist goodness that is the coke cake. David and I ate of it all week. Although the process is slightly weird, it was pretty easy. But with 3ish cups of sugar and 3 sticks of butter, its definitely not your every day dessert, but don't be scared, it's worth it.

cokecake prep
Coca-Cola Cake

2 cups sugar
2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup butter
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup Coca-Cola (I used classic, but will use Zero next time)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons cocoa
6 tablespoons Coke
1 box (16oz) confectioners' suger
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans

Click HERE for the rest of the how-tos. The really fun part is boiling together coke, marshmallows, coco, & butter. It's a crazy sweet smelling concoction.

I'm headed off to Birmingham for my bro-in-law's high school graduation. {psst he is the valedictorian! love you benny-boo!} Ellie's Run this morning was awesome. I'll give the recap and pictures early next week. Have a great weekend blog friends!
