Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake – Yum!

Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake

Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake- Yum! I’ve recently taken an interest in a channel on YouTube called Glen and Friends I don’t know anything about Glen, whether he’s a chef or just someone that likes to be in the kitchen cooking and baking. Glen and I share an interest, vintage cookbooks. His cooking and baking segments are from recipes from those vintage cookbooks.

Below is the recipe with the easy to follow steps. I love chocolate, plus my family loves chocolate so this cake spoke our last name repeatedly as my son, Aiden and I watched Glen’s video. I will however warn you that this is very, very, very rich. A thin slice of the cake is more than enough to satisfy. You got to watch Glen make this cake before trying to make it. Here is the link to the recipe as well as his video, bon appetite!

Watch Glen and Friends-Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake

This is the easiest Dr Pepper chocolate cake recipe you’ll ever make. The dense, moist, rich, chocolate flavour is accompanied by a simple chocolate icing. We based this Dr. Pepper cake recipe on our buttermilk chocolate cake recipe, and it’s a real winner. We used Dr. Pepper in this cake, but any soda pop could be used in this soda pop cake recipe

4 cups powdered sugar – approximate


Preheat the oven to 190ºC (375°F).
Put the pop, sugars, chocolate, and butter in a saucepan.
Stir over medium heat until fully melted and blended.
Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In a small bowl, stir together the buttermilk, vanilla, and chocolate liqueur.
Grease, flour and line 2 – 9″ cake pans with parchment.
Whisk the milk mixture and eggs into the slightly cooled chocolate mixture.
Whisk in the dry ingredients, in 2-3 additions.
Divide the batter between the pans and bake about 30 to 35 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
Let the cakes cool completely, then remove from the pans and cool on a rack.
Meanwhile, make the icing.
Using your preferred method – melt the chocolate, then let cool almost to room temperature.
Cream the butter, and add in about ¼ of the icing sugar.
Whisk in the melted chocolate, vanilla, liqueur and salt.
Slowly whisk in just enough icing sugar to stiffen and attain desired sweetness.
Ice as a layer cake.
