No-Chocolate Cola Cake
A vanilla twist on chocolate cola cakes, this recipe combines cola, yellow cake and pudding mixes, coconut and pecans—with a cream cheese frosting.
1 (18.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 (3.5-ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 (12-ounce) can cola-flavored soda
4 large eggs
1/2 cup butter
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a Bundt® cake pan.
- In a large mixer bowl, combine yellow cake mix, instant vanilla pudding mix, oil, coconut, pecans, soda and eggs; mix well.
- Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick comes out clean when inserted in the center of cake. Remove from oven and cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
- Frosting: In a medium bowl, cream together butter with softened cream cheese. Gradually beat in powdered sugar until smooth and fluffy. Frost the cooled cake.
