Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake
Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake recipe is such a treat. If you’ve been to Cracker Barrel and ordered their Coca-Cola cake, you’ll know what I am talking about. It’s good stuff.
I took my youngest son there a few weeks ago and ordered two pieces to go. One for him and one for me. It was all I could do to not eat his!
I love cake. If you love cake, you can also try this Buttermilk Texas Sheet Cake.
There are several steps, but this was a pretty easy recipe, and I was glad to have more than one piece at home to eat (plus my son was glad I wasn’t trying to eat his).
Recipe and printable instructions below
Add the sugar, flour, baking soda, and cocoa to a bowl, mix together and set aside.
In a saucepan add the butter, vegetable oil, and Coca-Cola. Bring to a boil.
(You can see my phone in the reflection!)
Once the mixture boils, pour it into the flour mixture and stir.
Make sure to completely stir the mixture before adding the eggs to keep them from cooking.
Add the eggs to the mixture and mix well.
Next, add the vanilla.
Finally, add the buttermilk and stir everything together. Mmm…this makes it rich and delicious.
(If you don’t have buttermilk, you can use a combination of 1/2 cup milk and 1 tsp. lemon juice).
Pour the mixture into the greased cake pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350-degrees.
Add the butter, cocoa, Coca-Cola, and vanilla to a sauce pan. Cook on medium heat until melted and warm.
Add the chocolate syrup and mix together.
Finally, add the powdered sugar and mix well. Continue to stir until all of the lumps are gone.
Let the frosting cool for about 15 minutes before pouring onto the cake. (Otherwise it all slides off to the sides).
Let the cake and frosting cool for a few minutes before serving.
