Pepsi Cake

This recipe was given to my mom from my aunt, Roberta June (Miller) Edwards.

The Cake:

2 C. Sifted All Purpose Flour
1/2 C. Buttermilk
3 T. Cocoa
2 Eggs, Beaten
2 C. Granulated Sugar
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
2 Sticks Butter, Melted
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1 C. Pepsi Cola
1 1/2 C. Miniature Marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13" pan. Mix flour, sugar & cocoa together in large bowl. Then beat in remaining ingredients except marshmallows, which should be folded in last. Pour into prepared pan and bake 40 minutes. Frost while still warm.

The Frosting:

1/2 C. Butter, Softened
3 1/2 C. Powdered Sugar, Sifted
2 T. Cocoa
1/3 C. Pepsi Cola

Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium heat, stir in sugar, cocoa, and Pepsi, and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and pour over the cake.  Let it cool before cutting.

My Variation:  Cream butter and sugar, then beat in cocoa. Add Pepsi, peat until smooth. Add more powdered sugar if thicker frosting is desired.
