Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake

Many of you have probably had a Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake sometime in the past.  This recipe has been around for as long as I can remember.  My mom made it when I was a child, and I have made it as long as I’ve been cooking.

When they called from the bank last week to ask me to make a couple of desserts for a luncheon this was the first dessert that crossed my mind.  I baked the cake just before time to deliver it.  This Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake is a very moist cake and is especially delicious served warm and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream…YUM!!
