About this recipe: This is a great cake for all the cola fans out there. A cola flavoured chocolate cake is spread with a dreamy cola and pecan topping. Enjoy for dessert or with a cuppa.
MARSHMALLOW ISSUES: For those of you that are having trouble with the "marshmallow" part of the recipe, it is written right. Instead of offering revised recipes, you should try it how it's written first. The marshmallows float to the top melting over the chocolate cake giving it a chewy brownie like crust. If you're fishing the marshmallows out or melting them in the recipe, you're missing the best part of this cake. Make it like the recipe says and you'll be calling it "crack cocaine cake" like I do. It's addicting. My absolute favorite chocolate cake ever. Thank you sassy!!! Amended to add - I just made the cake again today for my husand's birthday as it is his favorite. I added an extra cup of marshallows too. Chewy delicious crust!! So so so good. - 24 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My friend asked for this cake for her birthday and I decided to give it a try first and I am so glad I did! I read the other reviews and saw where people didn't think the cake had enough chocolate,so I used 5 tablespoons of cocoa with the cake and 3 tablespoons in the icing. It was really GOOD! I think this brought it to the level of chocolate I needed for my craving. Can't wait to make it again this weekend for my friends birthday! - 19 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yum! I am 14 years old and this was the first cake I've ever made from scratch by myself. I made it for my little brother's birthday and it was delicious. However, the icing was a little too sweet. The consistency was okay, though. I'd recommend halving the amount of confectioner's sugar and maybe adding in some more cocoa. Thanks for the awesome recipe!!! - 23 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
