    ROD 5/8/2006 Coca-Cola Day Coca-Cola Chocolate Chip Cake

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Coca-Cola was invented in May, 1886, by Dr. John Pemberton in Atlanta, Georgia. The name came from his bookkeeper who wrote it out in the script that is famous today. They sold the drink at a soda fountain with no profits the first year. The business was sold to Asa Candler for $2,300, but it was a Mississippi candy store owner who thought of bottling drinks in the back room. In 1899, large-scale bottling began, and today more than 834 million drinks are sold each day.

    List of Ingredients

    ROD 5/8/2006 Coca-Cola Day Coca-Cola Chocolate Chip Cake

    Coca-Cola Chocolate Chip Cake

    1/2 cup butter, melted (1 stick)
    1 cup Coca-Cola, at room temperature
    1 square semisweet baking chocolate
    3/4 cup miniature marshmallows
    1/2 cup shortening
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    2 cups sugar
    2 eggs
    3/4 cup buttermilk
    1 cup powdered baking cocoa
    2-1/3 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
    Optional frosting: 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips, powdered sugar, or prepared chocolate frosting


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with non-stick foil. (If using regular foil, grease and flour with powdered cocoa.)

    Combine butter, cola and semisweet baking square in a saucepan.

    In a large bowl, combine shortening, oil, vanilla, and sugar, blending until mixed. Add eggs, buttermilk, and cocoa, beating at medium speed until smooth.

    In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix with a whisk so the ingredients are equally distributed.

    Add half of the flour mixture to egg mixture and beat well, scraping down sides often. Add cooled Coca-Cola mixture and beat. Add remainder of flour and beat until completely smooth for about 3 to 4 minutes. Fold in 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips. Batter will be thick.

    Pour batter into prepared baking pan. Place on the top shelf of the oven and bake about 50 minutes or until it tests done. (See frosting options below.) Let cool completely before cutting to serve.

    Optional Frostings
    Sprinkle 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips on hot cake as soon as you remove it from the oven. Wait a couple of minutes for the chips to melt, then smooth with a spatula to frost the cake. Or wait until cake is completely cooled and sprinkle generously with powdered sugar or spread on store-bought prepared chocolate frosting.

    Yield: 36 servings
