GRANDSON'S FAVORITE COCA-COLA CAKE

2 1/3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup butter
2 tbsp cocoa
1 cup coke
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour a 9 x 13 x 2-inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, and baking soda; set aside.

In a medium saucepan, bring the Coca-Cola, butter, and cocoa to boiling over medium heat. While hot, add to the four mixture; stir just until combined. Add the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla; stir until combined. Gently stir in the marshmallows (they will float to the top). Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Set pan on wire rack. Immediately spread the following topping over the hot cake.

TOPPING:

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup Coca-Cola
2 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts

Bring the butter, cocoa, and Coca-Cola to boiling in a saucepan. Remove from heat and add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix with a wire whisk until combined. Stir in the nuts and spread over the hot cake.
