Coca-Cola Cake is a Southern classic! It’s fudgy, moist, and full of rich chocolate flavor, which is why you’ll want to make it again and again!
The Coca-Cola in the cake batter gives it a moist, fudgy texture, while the frosting on top is rich, chocolatey, and infused with cola flavor.

In a small saucepan, bring the cola to a boil. Cook until the liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup.
Stir in the butter and cocoa; once the butter melts, remove the pan from heat.
Stir in the confectioners’ sugar and pour the mixture over the hot cake.
To store, make sure the cake is completely cooled before wrapping it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil or transferring it to an airtight storage container.
Then, store the cake at room temperature for 3 to 4 days. You can also freeze the cake for up to 3 months.
This is the perfect dessert for any occasion, whether it’s a birthday party or to celebrate your kiddo getting an A on a dreaded math test!
