dr pepper cakeThis delicious cake from blogger Amy Johnson is just what the doctor ordered.

1 ½ cups Dr Pepper
½ cup vegetable or canola oil
1 stick salted butter (8 tablespoons)
4 Tbsp. cocoa powder (Johnson uses Hershey’s Special Dark)
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
½ cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease or spray a 13 x 9 x 2″ baking pan.

In a saucepan over medium heat bring the Dr. Pepper, oil, butter and cocoa powder just to a simmer. Stir to combine all ingredients and remove from heat.

In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients and add to saucepan. Gently stir to combine being careful not to over-mix.

In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs and buttermilk together, then add to the saucepan and stir until just incorporated.

Pour into greased baking pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 23-28 minutes.
