- 1 c. Pepsi
- 1/2 c. vegetable oil
- 1 stick butter
- 3 heaping tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 c. sugar
- 2 c. flour
- 4 oz. Bakers Chocolate, melted
- 1 tbsp.vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 c. buttermilk
- 2 large eggs
- 1 stick butter
- 3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder.
- 6 tbsp.milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 4 c. powdered sugar
- pinch of salt
- Preheat oven to 350 Degrees and spray a 9X13 pan and set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and sugar. In a large saucepan, melt the oil, butter, and add Pepsi and cocoa powder and bring to a boil. Once the mixture has begun to boil remove from heat and using a handheld or standing mixer, slowly pour into flour/sugar mixture. Allow batter to cool for about 5 minutes.
- Next, add Bakers Chocolate (you can use semi-sweet chocolate chips if you want), vanilla extract, and the half cup buttermilk. Add eggs one at a time and finally baking soda. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minute or until a toothpick can be inserted and comes out clean
- Allow cake to cool and begin to prepare the frosting. In a medium saucepan melt butter, cocoa powder, and milk to a boil and remove from heat. Whisk in the powdered sugar and add vanilla extract. Pour on top of the cake and set in the refrigerator and/or cover at room temperature until ready to serve.
Note: the original recipe mentioned pouring the frosting on top of the cake while the cake is still warm. I allowed my cake to cool for about 20-30 minutes before I poured over the frosting, and my cake came out fine.
