Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake a classic Southern favorite made with a very popular soda. Moist, rich chocolate, perfectly textured, and easy to prepare, it’s sure to become a family favorite!
We decided to eat at Cracker Barrel for Easter; I guess no one in the family wanted to cook. I was more than happy for someone else to cook and clean for once. I always order the pancakes at Cracker Barrel regardless of what time of day it is. And I never have room for dessert. Ryder didn’t have room either, but he kept looking at the sign for this Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake that sat on the table. About half-way through the meal probably when he realized he, too, would not have room for dessert. He asked me if we could make a Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake.
This Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake is gooey and chocolaty. It’s similar to a brownie except with frosting.
The frosting is velvety smooth, sweet, and has a light chocolate flavor.

Lincoln typically doesn’t eat the cake part of cakes. He usually only eats only the icing. He ate two pieces and exclaimed, “This cake is ah-MAZING!!”
