I recently made this chocolatey, wonderful, moist cake for my family.
This would be perfect for tailgating, as it travels well, is delicious, and makes enough for a large group.
In fact, I had so much, I delivered it to friends to enjoy also.


2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup coca-cola
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten
chocolate icing (recipe follows)

Heat oven to 325F.
In a large bowl, sift together sugar and flour. Stir in marshmallows, set aside. In a saucepan, bring to a boil the shortening, butter, cocoa and coca-cola. Remove from heat and pour over sugar and flour mixture, mix well. Stir in (do not beat) the buttermilk, baking soda, vanilla and eggs.
Mix well. Pour batter into a 9 by 13 inch baking dish, and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool. Spread icing on top.


1/2 cup butter
6 tablespoons coca-cola
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 (1 pound) box confectioners sugar

In a small saucepan, bring to a boil the margarine, coca-cola, and cocoa. Boil until cocoa is dissolved and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Add confectioners sugar, beat until smooth. If it becomes too thick, add more coca-cola 1/2 teaspoon at a time until it reaches spreading consistency.
