Have you ever included a soft drink in a recipe?? I have in the past but, one I have never used in a baked good is cola. Have you made a Classic Cola Cake? Can you believe I have never made a cola cake? I can’t believe it my self so I had to remedy the situation with this Easy and Delicious Classic Cola Cake.
I did a lot of research to come up with this yummy cake. Some recipes I came across had mini marshmallows in the batter and some did not. I decided to include them in my recipe and I think it added a really nice chewy top layer. Here is a picture of the cake before I put the frosting on. The marshmallows mostly melted into the cake but these ones rose to the top and look nice and toasty.
All in all this cake is a huge hit at my house. Mr. Pinkcakeplate ate 3 pieces before dinner, that’s right before dinner! Then he ate another piece after dinner! And he doesn’t like walnuts! My MIL ate a double piece after dinner and took a HUGE slab of cake home with her for later. So that should tell you how well this cake is liked!
The frosting is my favorite it is a thick fudge like frosting dotted with walnuts. I love walnuts and always have some in my freezer. Now I am not a frosting girl at all, but this is more like candy on top of a layer of melted marshmallows all sitting on top of a moist chocolatey cake. It doesn’t get any better that that! The marshmallow layer is sweet, and chewy and so so good. I have to say this cake is very close to a Texas Sheet Cake in flavor and texture and you do boil some of the ingredients so the technique is similar too.
If your looking for an easy and delicious dessert, this Easy and Delicious Classic Cola Cake is the perfect choice serve it along side a glass of ice cold milk and your good to go!
