    Trisha W's Note:

    This is just a great cake that I learned about from a friend. It seems coke is used in a lot of recipes and also 7-up/Sprite. This is unique in that it uses Dr. Pepper.

      Very good recipe! I made 24 cupcakes. Since I am the only chocolate lover in my family, I left the cocoa out to make them vanilla Dr. Pepper cakes. I put 1/2t. vanilla and a splash of Grenadine in the icing - delicious!

      I've been making this for years and love the uniqueness of it compared to coke/7-up cake. Believe it or not, the recipe I have also includes mini-marshmallows in the batter, just in case there wasn't enough sugar, lol. The frosting is very sweet and oftentimes I just sift powdered sugar over it or make half a recipe of the frosting, heat it and drizzle like a glaze to get a touch of extra flavor without the gooey sweetness. :o)

      Made this cake yesterday and thought it was just okay. Would have given it maybe 3. But we tried it again today, and it tastes a lot better. Quite a lot better, in fact. The cake kind of solidified into a denser yet still moist cake. My hubby who absolutely detests Dr. Pepper and claims that he can taste it in the cake loved it. I guess this is one of those cakes that you just have to try for yourself. Didn't use all of the sugar called for in the frosting and I added a little vanilla. With a cooked frosting you just need to make sure you get it on the cake right away. The longer you wait the more difficult it is to spread. I liked the consistency of it after it set.
