They ALL want cake
This cake is amazing, as anyone who's indulged will attest. The beautiful southern girl who made it omits the walnuts and marshmallows. I guess I would too, because it is divine when she whips it up, as she did for my birfday two years ago.
Coca-Cola Cake (aka 'numanums')
Grease and flour 13x9x2 pan
The Cake: Bring 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup Wesson Oil, 3 tbsp cocoa and 1 cup coca-cola to a boil. Pour over 2 cups sugar and 2 cups flour, mixed well, while boiling hot. Mix well and add ½ cup buttermilk, 1 tsp. vanilla, ½ tsp soda, and 2 eggs. Fold in 1 and 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows. They will rise to the top of the batter so spread them evenly over batter after putting in pan to bake. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
Ovens vary so check your temp.
The Icing: Bring ½ cup butter, 3 tbsp cocoa, 6 tbsp coca cola to a boil. While boiling hot add 1 box powered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 cup chopped pecans. Immediately pour icing over cake while hot, just out of the oven. Do not cut until cool. It will stay moist for 2 weeks if kept in covered container.
