Chocolate Coca Cola Cake

According to the original post this cake is a Southern tradition. It's really easy to make and you probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen.


-2 cups flour
-2 cups sugar
-1/2 tsp salt
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp cinnamon

in a saucepan over medium high heat stir this up good until it boils:
-1 cup butter
-1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 cup coca-cola 
-1/2 cup buttermilk

Then add:
-2 eggs
-1 tsp vanilla extract

Sauce pan ingredients.
Everything mixed together.

Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes (do not over bake!).

The other post called for a glaze that involved four cups of powder sugar...I had too sweet flashbacks of the chess squares. So for the glaze I mixed together a little powdered sugar and a little Coca Cola. I'm not sure what I expected this cake to taste like, but it tastes like German chocolate cake. Something about the baking process brought out a coconut flavor from the Coca Cola. It was really good, but just be prepared for that flavor because we weren't ready for it.
