Coca-Cola Cake

This Coca-Cola Cake is a southern classic made with two cans of coca cola! It’s a rich, moist chocolate cake that’s full of flavor and wonderfully tender! If you’ve never tried it before, you really have to! You’ll be making it again and again! It’s a delicious chocolate cake with chocolate cooked frosting that has just a hint of Coca-Cola flavor.
