READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Trisha W

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!
