Chocolate Cola Cake

To some folks, those tasty carbonated drinks are called Coke's.
Someone comes to your house 
and you ask them if they want a Coke. 
Then you might ask them "what kind of coke?" 

I call them Soda's. Is it a southern thing? Not sure. 
My cousin calls them 'sodi's'
and she's about as southern as they come. may be. I just don't know.

Some of my friends call them Cokes. Some call them soft drinks. 
My momma just says "something cold to drink".
But she always gets a Pepsi. 
My youngest son says "drinks".
"Mom, we need to buy more drinks!"

Maybe I should research this a little further.

You are welcome to call it what you'd like. 
It's all the same in the end.
You still end up with a nice, cold, refreshing drink!

I seem to have this thing about cooking with 
these carbonated beverages lately. 
First the 7-Up biscuits
then the Diet Coke Brownies
and I've even made Pull Pork with Rootbeer before....
now it's a Chocolate Cola Cake.

My momma has baked this cake a time or two,
but I can't seem to locate her recipe.
When I saw this on Pinterest, 
(which led me to this blog )
I knew it looked exactly like the one Momma use to make. 
And I was tastes just like it!

Chocolate Cola Cake
 Preheat oven to 350
2cups flour
2cups sugar
1/2tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup coca-cola
1/2 cup buttermilk
 2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup coca cola
 4 cups powdered sugar

In a mixing bowl, add first five ingredients.
 Stir to mix together.

 In a small saucepan over medium high heat, 
heat the following (while stirring) until it boils.
  butter, cocoa powder, buttermilk, coca-cola

Add to the flour mixture and mix on low speed until combined.

Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix until combined.

Pour in to a greased, 9 x 13 baking dish.

Bake for approx 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

When the cake is almost done, make the glaze.
Add the following ingredients to a medium saucepan:
 butter, cocoa powder and coca cola.
Heat (while stirring) until boiling.

 Remove from heat and add powdered sugar.
I photo for this step!

When cake is removed from the oven, 
immediately pour glaze over the top of the cake and spread to cover entire cake.

This rich chocolatey cake can be enjoyed warm or cold. 
It can also be reheated and it will taste like it just came out of the oven!

The cake has a mild cinnamon and very chocolatey flavor.
And the glaze....well, it's just down right tasty!
