NotesThis cake is very sweet. If you prefer a cake that is less sweet, omit the marshmallow cream layer, poke holes in the cake, then add the chocolate frosting.


  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup Coca Cola

  • 7 ounces marshmallow cream
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick spray. Whisk together flour, granulated sugar and baking soda in mixing bowl. Set aside. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt 1 cup butter with 5 tablespoons cocoa and 1 cup Coca Cola. Bring to a boil, whisking together as it melts.

In a small saucepan over medium heat melt 1/2 cup butter, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder and 9 tablespoons Coca Cola. Whisk together and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and whisk in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour the warm chocolate mixture over the sifted confectioners' sugar. Whisk together until completely combined.

  7. Remove cake from oven and immediately drop dollops of marshmallow cream onto the top of the hot cake. Allow it to sit for a minute or so. Carefully spread the marshmallow cream across the top of the cake. Slowly drizzle the warm chocolate frosting over marshmallow layer. Allow cake to cool completely before serving. Tastes even better the next day!
