Double Fudge Coca-Cola Cake

Talk about a dessert you could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.... this is it. (That probably wouldn't be the healthiest choice, but oh well!) This coca-cola cake is tried and true, and it comes very close to the cake you can find at Cracker Barrel. Here is the recipe:

Ingredients for the Cake:

*1 cup coca-cola
*1/2 cup oil
*1 stick butter
*3 tablespoons cocoa
*2 cups sugar
*2 cups flour
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*2 eggs
*1/2 cup buttermilk
*1 teaspoon baking soda
*1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions for the Cake:

In a saucepan, bring Coca-Cola, oil, butter, and cocoa to a boil.
Mix the sugar, flour, and salt, then pour into the boiling liquid and beat well.
Add the eggs, buttermilk, baking soda, and vanilla; beat well.
Pour into a greased and floured cake pan. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. (That's what my directions say, but it has always taken me at least 40-45 minutes... so just be sure to watch it.)

Ingredients for the Icing:

*1 stick butter
*3 tablespoons cocoa
*6 tablespoons cream or milk
*1 tablespoon vanilla
*1/2 - 1 cup chopped pecans (I don't use these)
*1 pound confectioners sugar

Directions for the Icing:
In a saucepan, combine the butter, cocoa and milk.
Heat until the butter melts.
Beat in the remaining ingredients and spread on the hot cake.
Cool before cutting. (This is the hardest part!)
