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.
