Coca Cola Cake


  • 1 box (15.25 oz) Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
  • 1 small box (4 oz.) Instant Chocolate Pudding
  • 1 1/3 cups Coca Cola
  • 1 stick margarine or unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
  • 3-4 tbsp. milk
  • 2 cups (packed) powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)


Preheat oven to 350F degrees.  Spray 9×13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare cake mix according to package directions but instead of adding water, replace that amount with Coca-Cola. Add dry instant pudding mix to the batter. Pour batter into baking dish and bake according to package directions (usually 35-39 minutes). Just before cake is ready to come out of the oven, start making frosting. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt one stick of butter/margarine.  Add in cocoa powder and milk and stir.  Then stir in confectioners sugar. Stir briskly with a whisk to get all the lumps out. Take mixture off heat and add in vanilla extract. Once cake comes out of oven, pour frosting over warm cake. Sprinkle chopped nuts on top, if using.
