Chocolate Coca Cola Cake

**Recipe found on Pinterest**
Preheat oven to 350* and grease a 9X13 pan
2 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
1/2 tsp. slat
1/2 tsp. baking soda**
1/2 tsp cinnamon

**This has been made with baking powder or baking soda, either one works, powder was in the recipe, but soda gave better results

in a sauce pan over medium high heat stir this up good until it boils

1 cup of butter 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup coca cola
1/2 cup buttermilk

remove from heat and add to the flour mixture and mix together until combined.

2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Mix all together, pour in the pan and bake for about 30 mins {do not over bake}

When cake is nearly done make the glaze by mixing these ingredients in a saucepan:
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup coca cola
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
once that boils, remove and slowly stir in 4 cups of Powder Sugar until nice and smooth.
*optional: add a cup of chopped pecans or walnuts and give it a good stir

Once the cake is done baking {toothpick comes out clean} then you pour the glaze mixture over the top of the HOT cake.

Let it set for a bit to cool down, then cut and enjoy!!!
YUMMY either cool or HOT!!!
