Simple, classic Dr Pepper Cake. Do you remember this from your childhood? I know I do! Moist, rich, deep chocolate flavor enhanced by Dr. Pepper gives it a unique flavor not found in a traditional chocolate cake.
Spring has sprung. And we are into March already. Not sure how this year is already flying by.
But with the start of the month comes another fun Secret Recipe Club recipe. That’s ALWAYS a good time.
This month I was assigned Kitchen Trial and Error written by Kate! Kate’s blog is a blast. She has so many yummy recipes and I loved reading about each one.
Her recipe index is extensive and it made it very difficult to choose just one thing to make. On our Savory short list was: Gruyere Risotto, Cilantro Lime Rice or Papardelle with Mushrooms and on the Sweet Short List was: Strawberry Rolls, Gingerbread Waffles (because Gingerbread… Waffles. No I don’t care that it’s not Christmas anymore!), Slab Pie and this decadent Dr. Pepper Cake. Ultimately we decided to go with the Dr. Pepper Cake because:
- I wanted something chocolaty. This scores big time.
- I wanted something easy, because this month found me with so much on my plate. Bingo, this fit.
- I had Dr. Pepper already in the house along with the rest of the ingredients so making it on a whim one afternoon was easy peasy. So…. Dr Pepper Cake it is.
Dr Pepper Cake
I have had and made Dr. Pepper cake dozens of times and each recipe is slightly different than the last. For some reason it always tastes a little different to me each time too, and I have no idea why.
This time all I could taste was rich, chocolate flavor and it was gooooood. It was really good. When you want a chocolate fix, this cake is perfect.
Kate, thank you for such a fun recipes and flashback. I really loved your version, not nearly as sweet as others I have had. As far as I’m concerned, I feel like that’s what made this better.
I haven’t made one in a very long time so this was a lot of fun and I remember how great they are. Also a great cake to serve to guests at BBQ’s, picnics and potlucks!
