Old fashioned coca cola

It’s a late night here in my small town. The hubby and I are out running errands, so we stop into our local Cracker Barrel for a bite to eat. We always get the same thing. It tastes good. I am a creature of habit you know 🙂 After dinner, we have gotten to where we split dessert and it never fails — it’s always the Old Fashioned Coca Cola Cake they serve with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

This week, I decided to make some myself. Pure. Chocolate. Heaven.

Just one bite of this cake takes me back to my childhood days of running wild and free on Mr. Major’s tobacco farm. As a kid, we were left to enjoy all the adventure a farm offers. Mr’ Major’s wife though, always made sure us kids had a snack while my mom and dad worked bringing in the tobacco plants.

She had these shiny tin glasses that she used to serve us lemonade in or milk — whichever we preferred. For me, it was always lemonade :).

Then she would cut each of us a piece of cake — and it usually was this Old Fashioned Coca Cola Cake. She made them all the time.

As I made my own this past week, it allowed me to reflect on those days of climbing bales of hay, scaling the rafters of the barn, and just being wild and free.

Here is the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did 🙂
