Coca Cola Chocolate Pan Cake
September 03, 2014
"This will become your favorite, go-to chocolate cake. I promise! Just the ooey, gooey icing will do it for you... I copied this recipe a long time ago, but never noted where it came from. A quick internet search says Phyllis George, a former Miss America, named this as her favorite cake, one that a renowned cook named Queenie made for her while she was governor of Kentucky (Phyllis, not Queenie!). Regardless, this is a super sweet, moist, melt-in-your-mouth cake. But not for the faint of heart - you don't even want to know the fat and calorie count..."
