Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour, unsifted, plus more for dusting pan
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 sticks butter, plus more for greasing pan
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 cup plus 6 tablespoons Coca-Cola
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 16 ounces confectioners’ sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Sift the flour and sugar together into a bowl. In a pot, heat 2 sticks of the butter, 2 tablespoons of the cocoa powder, and 1 cup of the Coca-Cola to the boiling point. Pour over the flour-sugar mixture. Add the buttermilk, baking soda, eggs, vanilla, and marshmallows (the batter will be thin and the marshmallows will float to the top). Grease a 9-by-13-inch pan with butter and lightly flour the surface. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Just before the cake is done, combine the remaining butter, cocoa powder, Coca-Cola, and the confectioners’ sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Remove the cake from the oven, and pour the icing over the top while hot. Serve.

Cake Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cake Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
