Coca Cola Cake & Coca Cola Icin

Sweet baby Jesus. This cake has got to be the most sugar, fat, and calorie-laden concoction ever imagined. Who comes up with these things? Just readin the recipe, taken from the 1974 Roosevelt Elementary School Cookbook, has made my heart rate rise - if I actually ate a piece I'd go into an immediate sugar coma.

Coca Cola Cake
1 c. butter (that's 2 sticks, kids)
1 3/4 c. sugar
2 c. flour
3 tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. bakin soda
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 c. Coca Cola
1 1/2 c. miniature marshmallows

Oven temp: 350 degrees

Pan size: 9x13 bakin pan, greased

How to:
Combine all except cola and marshmallows. Blend at low speed, then beat for one minute at medium speed. Add cola and blend well. Add marshmallows. Pour into greased 9x13 in. pan and bake in an oven at 350 F, for 40 to 45 min. or until done. Cool cake before icin.

Coca Cola Icin
1/2 c. soft butter (that's yet another stick, kids)
1/3 c. Coca Cola
4 c. powdered sugar
3 tbsp. cocoa
1 c. chopped pecans

How to:
Mix butter, cola, powdered sugar and cocoa until smooth, then stir in the pecans. (Uh, and last step - slap the icin on the cake and enjoy your adult-onset diabetes.)
