In the South, where Coca-Cola A.K.A. Coke is a delicacy there's a type of cake that is just as special as the Coke itself. What is that? Oh yes, the caramel cake is special but the coca-cola cake is one of those "Dirty Little Secret" foods. The best flavor below the mason dixon, it's one that we should all try! 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 pan with Crisco. 
  2. Mix 2 cups of flour, 2 cups of sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. baking soda (baking powder works just as good), and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon.
  3. In a saucepan, over medium heat stir 1 cup butter, 1/4  cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 cup coca-cola, and 1/2 cup buttermilk.
  4. Add in flour mix and whisk until combined well. 
  5. Then add in 2 eggs & 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Mix.
  6. Put it in a pan, then bake for 30 minutes. 
  7. When it is almost done, make the glaze by mixing in a saucepan. 
  8. FOR THE GLAZE: Mix 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, and 1/2 cup coca-cola. 
  9. Once that boils, remove and slowly stir in 4 cups of confectioners sugar until it's smooth. Add in a cup of chopped pecans and stir.
  10. Once the cake is done and out of oven (toothpick should be clean when stuck inside cake), pour the warm glaze over the hot cake. 
  11. Let that set for a few minutes to cool. Enjoy warm or cold!
