Double Chocolate Dr Pepper Cake


  • 1 cup Dr Pepper (real thing, not diet)
  • 1/2 cup oil 
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 6 tablespoons of cream or milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 3/4 cups confectioner's sugar

Preheat the Oven to 350 Degrees.

In a saucepan, mix Dr Pepper, oil, butter and cocoa and bring to a boil. 

In another bowl, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Pour the boiling Cola mixture over the flour mixture and beat well. 

Add the eggs, buttermilk, soda and vanilla and beat well. 

Pour mixture into a greased and floured 10 x 15 inch baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove pan. Cool for about 10 minutes before frosting.

In a saucepan, combine the butter, cocoa, and milk. Heat until the butter melts. Beat in the remaining ingredients and spread on the cake while it's still warm. 

Myrtle's Note:  I changed the recipe from Coke to Dr Pepper, obviously!  I also had to cook the cake for 33 minutes and it still needed a bit more time.
