Ingredients for Cake

  • 1 cup Coca Cola
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda careful - this is not added in with the other dry ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Ingredients for Frosting

  • 1 stick 8 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons cream milk, or buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 - 1 cup pecans chopped (optional - I don't use them)
  • 3 3/4 cups 3.75 cups confectioners (powdered) sugar


Instructions for Making the Cake

  • In a sauce pan, bring oil, butter and cocoa powder to a boil.
  • Move to a mixing bowl after items in step one have come to a boil.
  • Mix the sugar, flour, and salt. Pour them into the mixture that you just put in the bowl. Beat well.
  • Add in Coca Cola. Blend well.
  • Add eggs, buttermilk, baking soda, and vanilla. Beat well.
  • Pour into a greased and floured sheet cake pan. (I used a 15-inch cookie sheet that had one inch sides. A jelly roll pan is also a great option.)
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes. Plan to frosting the cake shortly after taking the cake out of the oven.

Instructions for Making the Frosting

  • Very shortly before the cake is done or immediately after taking it out of the oven, start making the cake's froting.
  • In a saucepan, combine the butter, cocoa powder, and milk. Heat until butter melts.
  • Beat in the remaining ingredients, and pour/spread on the hot cake.
  • Cool cake before cutting.


The yield on this recipe all depends on how big of pieces you are cutting. I would imagine you could make large pieces and cut 30 pieces. I often cut it so that I get around 40 pieces of cake from the pan.
