Since today is my husband’s birthday, I decided to share with you one of our favorite cake recipes, Cracker Barrel Fudge Coca Cola Cake.
This is a recipe I have had in my binder for quite a few years. It’s scribbled on a piece of paper, so unfortunately I have no idea where the recipe came from. All I remember, is that one time on vacation, while eating at Cracker Barrel and I decided to order desert. I rarely order desert, but when I saw the Fudge Cocoa Cola cake on the menu, I couldn’t help myself. The cake didn’t disappoint, it was super moist and ever so yummy! I even think this cake tastes a lot like that cake I had while eating out.
This recipe takes a few more ingredients and a little more time than just making a cake out of a box but the results will be more than worth the effort.
How to make Cracker Barrel’s Fudge Coca Cola Cake
- 1 cup Coca-Cola
- ½ cup oil
- 1 stick margarine
- 3 tablespoons cocoa
- 2 cup sugar
- 2 cup flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- In a saucepan, bring Coca-Cola, oil, margarine, and cocoa to a boil. Meanwhile mix the sugar, flour and salt. Pour the dry flour mixture into the boiling liquid and beat well. Add the eggs, buttermilk, soda, and vanilla and mix well.
- Pour into a greased and floured sheet cake pan, and bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes.
I use a can of vanilla frosting on the cooled cake, but you could use any flavor or choice frosting. Enjoy!
