Peanuts in Coke cans

Apparently, throwing a handful of goober peas into your Coke is a Southern tradition. I'll try it at a ball game or something one of these days. I thought the idea sounded pretty strange until I remembered a cake Mom made a few times. Ooey, gooey, goodness....

A

COKE CAKE
1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 3/4 cup sugar
3 t. cocoa
1 tsp.soda
1 tsp.vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 c. (any brand) canned cola
1 1/2 c. miniature marshmallows

Combine softened butter, flour, sugar, cocoa, soda vanilla, eggs and buttermilk. Add cola, blend well and stir in marshmallows by hand.
Pour into a greased pan and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

Cool for 30 minutes.


FROSTING:

1/2 cup butter
3 T. cocoa
1/3 cup cola
4 cup powdered sugar

Toast 1/2 cup almonds (or peanuts! :) ) in oven and stir into frosting if desired. It adds a great flavor (indeed.

  1. Tony puts peanuts in his coke bottle whenever we are on a road trip. He LOVES it. I've not quite gotten the taste for it yet.

  2. Mmmmm... cake sounds good. I can't get enough of cake and pickles these days. Anyway, I love the "Stop, No Stopping" sign. That's great! :)
