Flying for Coke cake

I just finished the last piece of Coke cake. My mom made it for my birthday. For those of you who have never had a piece, I feel sorry for you. It is divine. Unfortunately, there isn't any left to share with you, but I will give you the recipe. I am sure there is a reduced calorie version, but I refuse to mess with delicious perfection. I will just run an extra mile or two tomorrow.

from the kitchen of Joyce Walker

1 cup Coke 2 cup sugar
2 cup flour 2 sticks butter
3 tbsp cocoa ½ cup buttermilk
2 eggs 1 tsp. soda
