Old Fashioned Chocolate Cola Cake with Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe


After all these years, I finally tried this cake. I had it written down since the early 80's and never tried it. Moist, easy and will definitely recommend to those who like and easier way to bake. You can opt to buying a store bought jar of hot fudge for the topping!  A great cake to bring to any event too.

1 package 18 ounce devils food cake mix
4 eggs
1 package chocolate instant pudding or (vanilla pudding with the addition of
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder)
1 1/4 cups cola soda
1/2 cup canola oil

Mix all ingredients together until all the lumps are gone around 4 minutes with an electric mixer.
Pour into a prepared 13x9 sheet greased cake pan, cupcake or tube pan.
Bake at 350 until middle is set and when using a tooth pick in the center it is clean. Around 35 to 45 minutes.  Cool around 15 minutes and serve warm with warm homemade or store bought hot fudge sauce.

Hot Fudge Sauce:

2/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup light brown sugar
unsweetened cocoa powder
6 oz chocolate semi sweet and a good quality chocolate chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla or add 1 teaspoon of your favorite liqueur (Amaretto, Kahlua, Frangelico just to name a few)
pinch of salt
Add everything to a medium size sauce pan and heat till boiling, lower simmering for 5 minutes.  Add the vanilla and butter.
