CocaCola Cake

I made this for the first time around 2 years ago. Oh. Em. Geeee. Seriously sooo good! Gray has requested it for both birthdays since then. Unfortunately last year I was on the phone dealing with some major adoption drama while trying to make it and I ended up pouring the batter in the wrong since pan and it started overflowing into my oven. Lovely. This year, I made it right and we greatly enjoyed it! I have seen a few different recipes for this cake but I have always used the on from Love at First Bite.

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3 tbsp cocoa
1 cup Coca-Cola
1 cup butter
1 and 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
2 eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup butter
1 tbsp cocoa
6 tbsp Coca-Cola
1 pound box powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 pan. In a mixing bowl combine flour and sugar. In a saucepan melt together the butter, coke, cocoa and marshmallows and bring to a boil. Combine with the flour mixture in the mixing bowl. In a separate bowl combine the eggs butter milk, baking soda, and vanilla. Combine with the flour mixture. Pour into the pan and bake for 35 minutes.

After the cake has been removed from the oven make your icing. In a saucepan combine the butter, cocoa, and coke. Bring to a bowl. Add the powdered sugar and mix in well. Pour the icing over the cake while the icing and the cake are still warm.
