Coca Cola Cake


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray.

In a large bowl mix:
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

In a saucepan over medium high heat stir and bring to a boil:
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup coca cola
1/2 cup buttermilk

Take off heat and add to flour mix and whisk until combined.

Add:
2 eggs
1 tsp., vanilla extract

Mix and pour into pan.  Bake about 30 minutes.  Don't over-bake.

When cake is nearly done make the glaze by mixing in a saucepan:
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup coca cola

Bring to a boil.  Remove and slowly stir in 4 cups of confectioners' sugar.  Whisk until smooth.  Add 1 cup chopped nuts.  Once cake is done and out of the oven  (toothpick should come out clean), pour warm glaze over hot cake.  Serve warm or cold.

Comments:  This recipe was on Pinterest and posted by MayFlaum I followed this recipe to the letter and apparently it's delicious!  I don't eat chocolate so I can't say personally but all of my food testers have raved about it's moistness, flavor and richness.  For my cocoa I used Dark Chocolate so the coloring came out almost black!  It really looked great.  A cherry on top would have been perfect.
