This One's For You Jess....Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake!


I'm not too addicted to chocolate myself...but this was great! (And has no redeeming nutrient value...when it's done..."lock all the doors, draw the shades, don't answer the phone and get out the milk!)

Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake
(from Tasty Kitchen)

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large pan on the stove, cook to a simmer,then turn the heat off:

1 1/2 C Dr. Pepper Soda
1/2 C oil
1 cube butter
4 T cocoa powder

Mix dry ingredients slightly:
2 C sugar
2 C flour
1 t baking soda

Stir into the chocolate mixture; don't overbeat.

In a small bowl, lightly beat:

2 eggs
1/2 C buttermilk

Then add this to the pan and combine well.

Pour into a 9x13 pan and bake about 25 minutes; don't overbake.

Frosting:
1 cube butter
4 T cocoa powder
1/2 C milk
4 C powdered sugar

Melt butter; add cocoa and milk and cook until smooth; gradually add the powdered sugar (I sifted mine so it wouldn't be lumpy). Pour this thin glaze over the warm cake when it comes out of the oven...
