This is horrible that i keep finding all these yummy looking cake recipes. Especially since i am trying to eat better lol. This recipe also comes from the country cook
1 box (15.25 oz) Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
1 small box (4 oz.) Instant Chocolate Pudding
Ingredients listed on back of cake mix box (eggs & oil - water not needed)
1 1/3 cups Coca Cola
1 stick unsalted butter
3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
6 tbsp. heavy cream or milk
1 pound (or about 2 cups) of confectioners sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F degrees
Spray 9x13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Prepare cake mix according to package directions.
But instead of adding water, you will replace that amount with Coca-Cola.
Add in dry instant pudding mix to the batter as well.
With this mix, it called for 1 1/3 cups of water, I substituted that with 1 1/3 cups of Coca Cola.
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, start melting one stick of butter/margarine.
Add in cocoa powder and heavy cream (or milk, if using) and stir.Then stir in confectioners sugar.At this point I'll grab a whisk and stir briskly 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. Do your best to spread it out evenly.
