Cocoa CocaCola Poke Cake

If you have a sweet tooth, a craving for something REALLY sweet, this cake will hit the spot! It’s ooey, gooey, super sweet. A spongy cake with soft icing melted into the cake that almost crystallizes on top. Make it in a few easy steps:

– 1 stick (cup) of salted butter
– 1 cup of Coca-Cola
– 2.5 Tbsp Hershey’s cocoa
– 5oz. Marshmallows (for the brand I buy, it’s half a bag)

In saucepan, over medium heat, combine. Stir until marshmallows are melted, then pour into medium mixing bowl.

– 2 cups all purpose flour
– 2 cups sugar

In your mixing bowl, add in two cups of flour and two cups of sugar and mix thoroughly.

– 2 eggs
– 0.5 cup buttermilk
– 1 tsp. vanilla
– 1 tsp. baking soda

In a small bowl, whisk these ^4 ingredients^ together, then slowly add into your mixing bowl, incorporating thoroughly.

This is your cake batter. It’s thin, but bakes up wonderfully!
Use a greased 9″ x 12″ glass baking dish.
Bake at 350 Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.

While its baking, make the icing. It’s easy!

– 1 stick butter
– 3 Tbsp cocoa
– 12 Tbsp CocaCola
– 2 lbs of confectioners powdered sugar

Melt your butter over low heat, add cocoa, whisk. Add CocaCola; Whisk. Slowly add the confectioners sugar, whisking constantly.

When your cake comes out of the oven, immediately poke holes in the cake with a fork, and pour icing. Allow to sit for 1-2 hours before serving.

  1. Hey, Amber,
    Hate to say it, but a stick of butter is a half cup. Which is it? (Hope it’s a cup! Ha!) 😉

    • Found it! Typo …from separating my written grocery ingredient list into components that were easy to follow… Oops! For the cake it is supposed to say 1 stick, but there is another stick in the icing, thus the confusion transcribing it for the blog! I editted to clarify! 🙂 Thanks for reading! 🙂 ~Amber
