This cake is so good y’all, I can barely contain myself from going to make another one as I type this. Most folks in the south are familiar with this beloved cake. It’s basically a good ole chocolate-y cake with Coca Cola as one of the ingredients.


Now, most people can’t really taste the Coke as a separate ingredient in this. It just adds  that extra little something special that you can’t quite put your finger on. Is it a little sweeter? Is it spongier? Is it smoother? It’s all of those things and more. It’s just plain ole goodness on a plate. I suppose there are a few recipes for this cake floating around. Some have marshmallows in them and some are made totally from scratch.

This cake is simple, it’s chocolate-y, it’s fudgy, it is so incredibly moist and frosting !


Double Fudge Coca-Cola Cake Recipe

This cake is so good y’all, I can barely contain myself from going to make another one as I type this. Most folks in the south are familiar with this beloved cake. It’s basically a good ole chocolate-y cake with Coca Cola as one of the ingredients.


Ingredients
  • 1 box chocolate fudge cake mix
  • 1 4 oz (small box) instant chocolate pudding
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 cup Coca-Cola
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 4-6 tbsp heavy cream or milk* see notes below
  • 2 cups powdered sugar packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Spray 9 x 13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, stir together cake mix, dry pudding mix, eggs, oil and Coke for about 2 minutes on medium speed.
  4. Pour batter into prepared baking dish and bake according to package directions (usually 35-40 minutes). Note: The cake will have a slight dip in the center. This is normal. When it is done, a toothpick will come out clean.
  5. In a medium saucepan, over medium-low heat, start melting butter.
  6. Add in cocoa powder and heavy cream (or milk, if using) and stir.
  7. Then whisk in confectioners sugar. Stir briskly with a whisk to get all the lumps out.
  8. Take mixture off heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  9. Pour frosting over cake and evenly spread it out over cake.
  10. Sprinkle chopped nuts on top, if using. I think this cake is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 

Recipe Notes
  • If you are using milk instead of heavy cream, you will probably only need about 3-4 tbsp. of it because milk is thinner than heavy cream. Just use your judgement on it. Start with less and add a little at a time to get the right consistency. Or, you can always add a bit more powdered sugar to the frosting to make it thicker if you like. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
