Questions & Replies

  1. I tried to make this cake. Turned out horrible. I couldn't find any 18 ounce cake mixes, Is the pudding one small box of pudding or 3 ounces which would be 3 small boxes. My cake looked great but was gooey in the middle and no matter how long you cooked it would never firm up in middle. Any helpful hints?


  1. We made this for our Fathers Day dessert. DH is a huge DP fan so DS thought this was the perfect cake. It really is delicious, but like other reviewers we didn't taste the DP in it. But, no matter cuz we fell in love with this moist flavorful cake. DH thought it tasted like a butter pecan cake. So good. Thank you for sharing with us.
  2. I didn't have Dr. Pepper so I used Diet A&W Root Beer. You couldn't taste the root beer but it was still very good. The cake is so moist and rich. Next time I'm going to try orange pop.
  3. A really,nice rich cake but the Dr. Pepper flavour doesn't come through at all. We actually thought this tasted a lot like a sour cream glazed doughnut.
  4. I made this cake for a super bowl party. My family loved it! For frosting/glaze, I used one can of vanilla frosting, added one 2 tsp. of maraschino cherry juice and 2tbsp. Dr. Pepper. I spread this over the cake while it was still warm, then placed cherries all around the top. They all loved the pink...even my grandsons! We used Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper for the second cake. Delicious!
  5. I made this for Christmas and it turned out well. I made a second cake using orange cola in the place of dr. pepper and it was delicious also.
