I made a lot of icing to pour over the hot cake so it ended up as a rich, very moist and almost like a pudding cake. Gooey and decadent. Eat it warm or cold, my preference, out of the refrigerator. But, do, keep it in the fridge. Grab a fork and spoon and dig in!

1/2 to 1 cup Coca Cola
1/4 cup melted margarine
1/4 to 1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 to 4 - 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix for 3 minutes or until the consistency of pudding. Spread in a greased 13 x 9 pan and cook 20 to 30 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Take out of oven a pour Coca Cola Icing over cake while hot. Eat warm or cold from the refrigerator.
Coca Cola Icing:
Melt margarine. When room temperature, add Coca Cola, cocoa, confectioners sugar...starting with 2 cups this may be bitter to you so keep adding until desired sweetness and consistency. I used 4 1/2 cups confections to 1 cup Coca Cola which, was a little too runny for me. However...everyone loved it and it turned out very rich the next day after being refrigerated overnight. I prefer it cold and did not like it out of the oven. Guess I'm funny that way. ;)
Warm out of the oven.
