Dr. Pepper Cake

At first I was enticed to make this recipe based solely on the fact that Dr. Pepper was in this cake. I’m a huge fan of this Doctor.  Also, the picture looked so darn moist and fluffy.

(This Cake is a Lie)

I thought it was going to turn out with a taste of that Doctoral Pepper.  This couldn’t be farther from what to expect taste wise. Do not fret!  Even though the original image is completely and utterly false and the impression that you’d initially would have is completely off, this cake is super delicious.

Here is the Original Recipe:

Ingredients-

1 box yellow cake mix
1 box instant vanilla pudding
4 eggs
3/4 cup oil
1 10 oz. can of Dr. pepper
3/4 cups walnuts (Chopped)
Glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla and enough Dr. pepper to make a thin glaze.

Directions-

Turn oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a bunt pan.
Mix all ingredients together and pour into bunt pan.
Bake for one hour.
After cake cools , pour glaze over the top. Cut and serve.

What I changed:

Ingredients-

1 box yellow cake mix
1 box instant vanilla pudding
4 eggs
3/4 cup oil
1 10 oz. can of Dr. pepper
3/4 cups walnuts (Chopped) Someone in this household doesn’t like walnuts, it was great with out them, would have been better with added.
Glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla and enough Dr. pepper to make a thin glaze. *Suggestion* A thin glaze did and will likely run right off again, wait for the glaze to thicken up but yet is fairly malleable.

Directions-

Turn oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a bunt pan. (used greased 9×9 glass pan, worked great)
Mix all ingredients together and pour into bunt pan.
Bake for one hour.
After cake cools , pour glaze over the top. Cut and serve.

This is how it turned out after baking-

How the Dr. Pepper Cake really looks when done.

The Dr. Pepper does little to make the cake actually any darker, it remains quite yellow, which of course doesn’t change how tasty this cake turned out. My frosting turned out a little pink/purplish color, I happed to be using Dr. Pepper Cherry if that would make any difference, I’m not sure, I’ll have to follow up again when I try regular Dr. Pepper. Although, I honestly don’t anticipate any change in overall taste.

I would highly recommend this recipe it’s very easy and simple to make,  very moist,  very sweet but not over powering, great to share!
