It is no secret that when I drink soda, it is a Coca-Cola.  Being from the South and having lived in Georgia, I cannot remember ever having anything else but a coke.  Southern cooks will often use a Coca-Cola in baked beans, slow cooker pulled pork, roast beef and even over a ham but this Coca Cola Cake is my favorite way to cook with it.  I have had it many times, and it is one of the moistest cakes with the best fudge icing.  You will find this recipe in most any Southern cookbook, but I make mine a little different.  Instead of making it entirely from scratch, I use a cake mix.  That’s right!  A white cake mix turns into the best cake ever.

This COCA-COLA CAKE is moist, chocolaty, delicious with a thick layer of chocolate icing.  I love it at room temperature, but my husband loves it cold. You will have to decide for yourself.
