Coca-Cola Cake {Recipe}

My oldest daughter has never really liked cake. She has almost always requested pie for her birthdays. A couple of years ago, I made a Coca Cola cake one day with some Coke we had left from a party.  My children LOVE Coca-Cola, so I figured this cake might be a hit.
It definitely was! For her birthday last year, my oldest daughter requested the first cake I can remember her requesting! This was the cake.

Cake Ingredients: 
1 cup Coca-Cola
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup softened butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
Place flour, sugar, marshmallows, and salt into a bowl and stir together. In a saucepan, add the butter, Coca-Cola, and cocoa powder and bring to a boil. Stir constantly.  Pour into the flour/sugar mixture. Stir well. In a separate bowl, stir together the eggs, buttermilk, baking soda, and vanilla extract. Pour this egg mixture into the other bowl and stir until well combined. Pour into a greased 9×13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees until a toothpick comes out clean. It usually takes about 35 minutes. When you are within a few minutes of your cake being done, start on the frosting.
Frosting ingredients:
1/2 cup butter
6 tablespoons of Coca-Cola
3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
2 cups of powdered sugar
In a saucepan, place 1/2 cup butter, 6 tablespoons of Coca-Cola, and 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and gradually add 2 cups of powdered sugar. Stir until well combined.  Pour over the cake while it is still hot.
Enjoy!
