Ingredients

For the Cake:

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

For the Frosting:

  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 6 tablespoons of cream or milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 3/4 cups confectioner’s sugar

Instructions

Making the Cake:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the Coca Cola, oil, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the sugar, flour, and salt. Pour the hot Coca Cola mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. In another bowl, beat the eggs, then add them to the cake batter.
  5. Stir in the buttermilk, baking soda, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Making the Frosting:

  1. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  2. Stir in the cocoa and cream until smooth and well combined.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Gradually beat in the confectioner’s sugar until the frosting is smooth and spreadable.
  5. Spread the frosting over the cooled cake and let it set before serving.

Cook Notes and Variations

  • For an extra chocolatey flavor, you can add chocolate chips to the cake batter before baking.
  • Feel free to adjust the amount of cocoa in the frosting to suit your taste preferences.
  • You can substitute sour cream or yogurt for the buttermilk if desired.

Keto Versions and Low-Carb Versions

Keto Version:

  • Substitute almond flour or coconut flour for the all-purpose flour to reduce the carb content.
  • Replace the sugar with a keto-friendly sweetener such as erythritol or monk fruit.
  • Use unsweetened cocoa powder and sugar-free cola to minimize the sugar content in the cake.

Low-Carb Version:

  • Opt for almond flour or a low-carb baking mix in place of all-purpose flour.
  • Use a sugar-free sweetener such as stevia or sucralose instead of sugar in both the cake and frosting.
  • Choose a low-carb cola or carbonated water flavored with natural extracts to reduce the sugar content in the cake.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. Can I use diet cola instead of regular cola?

While you can technically use diet cola in this recipe, it may affect the flavor and texture of the cake. The sugar in regular cola contributes to the richness and moistness of the cake, so using diet cola may result in a slightly different taste and texture.

2. Can I make this cake ahead of time?

Yes, you can bake the cake in advance and store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. Frost the cake just before serving for the best taste and texture.

3. Can I freeze leftovers of this cake?

Yes, you can freeze leftover slices of cake for up to three months. Wrap each slice tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil before placing them in a freezer-safe container or resealable bag. Thaw the cake slices in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

4. Can I use a different type of frosting?

Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with different frosting flavors such as cream cheese frosting, peanut butter frosting, or coconut frosting to customize the cake to your liking.
