A Month of Chocolate: Coke “It’s not just for drinking any more” Cake

I wonder who had the idea to put coke in a cake? I know all about the 7-Up Pound Cake and all, but coca-cola and chocolate never seemed to go together to me. (Neither do coke and peanuts, but what do I know?)
Chocolate Coke Cake
1 c. softened butter
2 c. flour
3 T. cocoa
1 t. vanilla
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 t. baking soda
Mix all ingredients and mix at low speed. Add 1 c. coke and mix. Stir in 1 1/2 c. miniature marshmallows. Pour into a 13 x 9 greased pan and bake at 350.
Icing: Combine 1 stick butter, 3 T. cocoa, 1/3 c. coke, 4 c. powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Stir in 1 c. pecans and spread on warm cake.
