A moist pillowy chocolate cake topped with a fudgy chocolate Coca Cola Frosting.
Cracker Barrel is a place that will always hold a special place in my heart. We don’t have one around here. The closest one is around 2 hours away. Whenever I would come home for the weekend we would also stop at that location for supper on the way back. I love the homey attitude, the retro decor, and of course the food. One of my favorite things on the menu is the Chocolate Cola Cake. Since I graduated college we have no excuse to drive 2 hours just to visit Cracker Barrel. I’ve been craving that cake ,and decided to have a go at recreating it.
