Dr. Pepper Cake

•1-½ cup Dr. Pepper Soda
•½ cups Vegetable oil
•1 stick Butter, Salted (8 Tablespoons)
•4 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
•2 cups Sugar
•2 cups All-purpose Flour
•1 teaspoon Baking Soda
•2 whole Eggs
•½ cups Buttermilk

•1 stick Butter, Salted (8 Tablespoons)
•4 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
•8 Tablespoons Milk
•4 cups powdered Sugar

Directions for the cake:

Preheat oven to 350° F and grease or spray with cooking spray a 13×9x2″ baking pan.

Begin by combining the Dr. Pepper, oil, butter and cocoa powder in a saucepan over medium heat. When it comes to a simmer, mix well and turn the stove off.

Mix dry ingredients together (sugar, flour and baking soda); add to the mixture in the saucepan and mix well. Don’t over beat.

In a separate small bowl, lightly beat the eggs and buttermilk together, then add them to the saucepan and combine the batter well.

Pour into a greased baking pan and bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Be careful not to over bake.

Directions for the chocolate frosting:

In a saucepan, combine butter, cocoa powder and milk together over medium heat, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth.

Add in the powdered sugar a little at a time, combining after each addition until smooth.

Pour over the warm cake.
