Cocoa Cola Cake
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + standing Bake: 35 min. + cooling
I did adjust this recipe and I used a devil's food cake mix, and I also added 1 packet cappuccino mix. I did use 1 cup of CHERRY Coca Cola, but I did use the melted butter, vanilla extract and I used 2 cups of miniature marshmallows with 1/8 cup all-purpose flour!The marshmallow melted into the baked cake! I baked 40 minutes. NOTE: I greased and floured my baking pan! For the frosting, I used1b. can chocolate frosting, 1/4 cup Cherry Coca Cola and 2 cups of confectioners' sugar.I simply combined the frosting in a medium bowl with the cherry cola and confectioners' sugar until blended. The frosting spread very well! I think this cake is definitely a keeper forme! Thank you, Ellen Champagne, for this recipe! delowenstein
I followed the recipe & directions to a "T" . The marshmallows are blended into the batter and disappear in the baked cake, adding only to the flavor. This is a wonderful cake, I plan on keeping this as a "go to" recipe!
I didn't think that the cake was good enough to use more ingredients up for the frosting (which I'm sure is very good!). We ended up dusting the cake with powdered sugar and the kids thought it was just great! Maybe the frosting would've made all the difference.
Not sure what I did wrong. The marshmallows were all on the top when I took it out of the oven. The cake was mediocre but the frosting was really good.
My kids loved this. The cake tastes a lot like the white cake even though it looks like it is chocolate (and has cocoa in it). The frosting is wonderful! I did not use the nuts though as my kids don't care for them.
