I was watching old TV commercials this week and Coke has some of the best...."I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony".... the polar bears .... Mean Joe Green giving the little boy his football jersey. These cupcakes salute all those great commercials!
Coca Cola Cupcakes
1 cup Coca-Cola
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter at low speed until creamy. Gradually add sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and beat at low speed until blended. Combine flour, cocoa, and soda. Add to butter mixture alternately with cola mixture; begin and end with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended.
Stir in marshmallows. Pour batter into prepared cupcake liners and bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool completely. Frost with your favorite chocolate frosting (I like to add pecans).
