Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch pan

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a medium saucepan, combine 1/2 cup shortening, 1/2 cup butter, 3 tablespoons cocoa and 1 cup cola. Bring to a rapid boil and remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the sugar and flour. Pour in the cola mixture and blend with a mixer. In a medium bowl, dissolve the baking soda in the buttermilk and add eggs, vanilla and sour cream. Mix well and then stir into the batter. Beat for 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Pour batter into prepared 9x13 inch pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  4. To make the Frosting: In a medium saucepan, combine 1/2 butter, 6 tablespoons cola, and 3 tablespoons cocoa. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. When smooth, remove from heat and add confectioners' sugar and nuts. Beat until smooth, then pour over cake while both frosting and cake is still hot.

I did a website search for Cracker Barrel's coke cake and came up with several recipes very similar to this...the one I made is this recipe without the sour cream all other ingreds. same amount. Another diff. is it said to bake in a sheet pan (12x18) for 25min. Frosting is same. This was pretty good, not chocolatey like at Cracker barrel. The coke flavor is subtle, my family ate it, they like it well enough but I dont think I'll make again. Mine cooked fine in 25 min in a 12x18pan.

What did I do wrong? I made it according to recipe. When it came time to bake it, it says 30-40 minutes. I kept on checking it and it wasn't done. Finally after 48-50 minutes I took it out, put the frosting on and waited for it to cool. YUCK that wasn't like a brownie it was like dough.

Okay, what did I do wrong. Cake came out of the oven done, nice and high. Made frosting and poured over cake; cake fell and has the appearance of a dense brownie. Tastes great, rich, with cola undetone. Just looks different, strange. Help
