Coca Cola Cake


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 sticks unsalted butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
  • 1 1/2 cup Coca-cola, divided
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 13×9” baking dish. Sift together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt 2 sticks of butter with 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1 cup Coca-cola and 1/2 cup buttermilk. Cook until it boils.
  2. Add the boiled mixture to the flour mixture and combine. Then add eggs and vanilla extract. Pour the batter into the baking pan and cook for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of cake comes out clean.
  3. During the last 10 minutes of baking, prepare the glaze. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the remaining 1 stick of butter with 1/4 cup cocoa powder and 1/2 cup Coca-cola. Let this come to a boil and then remove from heat. Beat in the 4 cups of powdered sugar and stir in the chopped pecans. Pour the warm glaze over the hot cake. Let the cake cool for a little while and then enjoy it.
