Frosting for Coca Cola Cake
1/2cupbutter or margarine or 1 stick or 8 tablespoons
3tablespoon100% pure cocoa
11 pound package powdered sugar
1cuppecans or nuts of your choiceOptional
Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon in a large bowl and mix well using a wire whisk. Combine butter, the 1 cup of coca cola and cocoa in a pot on the stove and bring to a boil stirring often.
Remove from heat and pour over flour mixture. Mix with a spoon. Mix buttermilk and baking soda together and pour into cake mixture. Add marshmallows and continue stirring.(Your marshmallows will not melt) Add in eggs and vanilla extract.
Pour into a sprayed 9 x 13 inch pan and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes, testing for doneness. Frost.
Bring margarine, cocoa and coca cola to a boil on top of the stove. Remove from heat and add vanilla and powdered sugar until frosting is of spreading consistency. You can either stir in nuts or sprinkle on top of the cake. Spread over hot cake.
1 pound of unsifed powdered sugar= about 4 1/4 cups. 1 lb. of sifted powdered sugar = about 4 3/4 cups. I used 4 cups of unsifted powdered sugar and it worked fine in this frosting
