I just threw this recipe together for a last minute holiday party.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 29 minutes

Total Time: 54 minutes

Yield: 12 - 16 pieces


  • ----Cake----
  • 1-18 ounce chocolate cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1-1/4 cups Coca-Cola* soda
  • ----Frosting----
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound box powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons Coca-Cola soda
  • 1 cup lightly toasted nuts**, optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9x13 baking pan. Combine cake mix ingredients. Mix with electric mixer for 2 minutes. Pour into pan. Bake for 29-24 minutes.

While cake is baking, combine frosting ingredients in top of double boiler. Stir occasionally until completely combined and melted. Remove cake from oven to wire cooling rack. Spoon frosting over warm cake. Spread quickly before frosting hardens. Allow to completely cool before serving.

**I made mine this time without the nuts.
