Dead on like Cracker Barrel! has anyone tried making this into cupcakes? I'd love to make cupcakes out of it and freeze most of them so I'm not tempted to eat the entire cake :)

So moist!! I followed the recipe presicely and it turned out wonderfully! I did, however, pour the batter into 4 cake pans to make a 4-layer cake, and whipped up a chocolate cream cheese filling to layer in between. Mmmm! Also, make sure that you frost the cake immediately after making frosting- as the frosting sets into semi-firm consistency. Thank you and I'll be making this one again!

My family loves this cake. It is frequently requested, and my niece says it is better than Cracker Barrel's!!

I was skeptical about whether or not this cake would be as good as everyone says but it was! I'm curious if diet coke would work - or if the sugar content is what is needed or if there would be an aftertaste. Maybe I'll experiment but it really was good as is.

This cake was pretty easy to make, turned out wonderful! The most moist scratch cake I've ever baked. Everyone thought it was delicious, just like at Cracker Barrel.

I've been to Cracker Barrel a bunch, but never tried their Coca Cola cake. This is great!! Honestly, I can't make it again or I will eat it all... it is really that good.

I made this cake for my nieces birthday, it was a huge hit. Not too chocolaty, just right.
