Double Chocolate Coca Cola Cake

Ok, I didn't make this cake, but I DID eat it.  It was AH-MAZING.  I'm not a "cake person".  I'll eat it, but it isn't my FAV dessert.  This cake has made me a "cake person".  My friend made it for me yesterday for my birthday.  I was going to just "pin" it to Pinterest, but apparently they don't allow pins from Facebook.  Whatevs!

This is it.  The BEST, most amazing chocolate cake EVER.  

Here's the recipe, courtesy of "Living the Country Life" on Facebook!

Double Chocolate Coca Cola Cake

1 cup Coca Cola (real thing, not diet)
1/2 cup oil
1 stick butter
3 Tablespoon cocoa
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla


1 stick butter
3 Tablespoon cocoa
6 Tablesppon of cream or milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 3/4 cups confectioner's sugar

In a saucepan, mix Coca Cola, oil, butter and cocoa and bring to a boil. In another bowl, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Pour the boiling Cola mixture over the flour mixture and beat well. Add the eggs, buttermilk, soda and vanilla and beat well. Pour mixture into a greased and floured 13 x 9 inch baking pan and bake at 350 degrees or 20 to 25 minutes. Remove pan. Cool for about 10 minutes before frosting.

Frosting: In a saucepan, combine the butter, cocoa, and milk. Heat until the butter melts. Beat in the remaining ingredients and spread on the cake while it's still warm. Enjoy!

***Note: I ate half of my {huge} piece of cake before my friend told me what was in the cake.  You can NOT taste the Coke.  I am NOT a Coke fan (or a fan of ANY soda.  Bleh!), so if you are like me and don't like soda, PLEASE, don't pass this recipe up just because of that!  You can NOT taste it.
