Coca-Cola Cake

Coca-Cola Cake - delicious from scratch fudge chocolate cake with Coca-Cola in the cake and frosting. Great dessert for a potluck!

I made this cake a few weeks ago when we had the Coca-Cola BBQ Pork.  I never have regular Coke in the house (we are Diet Coke people), so I wanted to make sure I got the most out of it.  I used the recipe from straight the Coca-Cola website, so it is “the real thing”.

The cake was very simple and tasted fantastic! It was so moist, and the frosting was to die for!  I took the cake to work and it got rave reviews.  The only thing that would make this cake better is a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
