Coke, Cup Cake, Cold ....

We had a very bad weather last week , heavy storm everyday for almost a week. Most schools , offices were closed, and most people went to grocery store to prepare the very bad scenario . That was a bad situation that I can remember during 6 years ... Thanks GOD, nothing happen in our area. Feel sad for some who became victims of crazy weather

But today, we have a very clear sky , warm enough to go out side just wearing a light jacket and feel almost like a spring until 7 days latter . I took my daughter to shopping mall today, oh NO .. !! I forgot is only 2 days before valentine's day. The mall so packed !! people busy shopping for valentine's Day. Well.. well..well, not me ! :D I don't really care about the event. But I still want to share the nice recipe that you can make for your beloved one for valentine's Day :D


Part A-
1 cup butter
1 cup coca cola
2 tbsp un-sweetened cocoa powder
2 cups tiny marshmallow

Part B-

2 cups all purpose flour

2 cups granulate sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup buttermilk or sour milk *

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Coca Cola Frosting
1/2 cup chopped pecan, toasted

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line cupcake pans with paper liners.

In a small saucepan mix cola, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and add marshmallows. Place lid on saucepan and leave until marshmallows begin to melt. Stir well.

Mix flour, sugar, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl. Add buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla. Mix well.
Combine cola mixture in the mixing bowl. Spoon cupcake batter into cupcake pan liners until they are 1/2 to 2/3 full.

Bake at 325 degrees for approximately 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool cupcakes completely before frosting with coca cola frosting and sprinkle with pecan.

Coca Cola Frosting


1/3 cup butter
3 3/4 cups powder sugar

In a medium mixing bowl, beat 1/3 cup butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 second.

Slowly add 2 cups powdered sugar and 2 tbsp cocoa, beating until combined

Add 1/4 cola, beating well than gradually beat in 1 3/4 cups additional powdered sugar until combined.If necessary, beat in enough additional cola, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make frosting of spreadable consistency.

* To make 1/2 cup sour milk : place 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. add enough milk to make 1/2 cup total liquid, still. Let Stand for 5 minute before using.
