Topped with a chunky peanut butter frosting, this portable “Coke cake” is a fun and easy summer party dessert.

Summer is the season for ultra-portable sheet cakes, and it’s hard to imagine a more kid-friendly cake than this Coca-Cola-infused sheet cake topped with a broiled peanut butter frosting.

A sweet slice of coke cake topped with broiled peanut butter frosting.

Using just one pan, it requires no assembly or stacking, and the frosting spreads right on top. If you use a glass baking dish with a snap-on lid, you’ll be out the door and headed to your picnic, party, or cookout in a flash — leaving more time for fun in the sun.

This cake is full of surprises, starting with the soda.

All-important step: adding the Coke!

Followed by a generous handful of mini-marshmallows added right into the batter.

The frosting is made up of butter, milk, and these beautiful things — peanut butter, salted peanuts, and brown sugar.

Fresh from the oven, the warm cake is gently frosted and then returned to the oven for a quick (just seconds, really) broil to melt and set the frosting.

Spooning on the peanut butter frosting — before the broil.

You’ll love this cake. The soda lends a subtle tang to the light chocolate cake, but the real winner here is the frosting. It’s sweet, salty, decadent, and paired with the cake, everything you could ask for in a summer party snack cake.
