Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake

by Permanent Posies on April 9, 2012

I am enjoying the company of my family this week. My son and daughter-in-law are home from Italy and we are spending as much time together as a family as possible.

Therefore, I am re-posting a recipe today.  Hope you don’t mind.

Chocolate cake

Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake
Recipe type: Desserts
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown suger
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup Dr. Pepper
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (I am adding in the extra)
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • About 2/3 bag of powdered sugar (not a box) How much is that?
  • 1 stick real butter
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa
  • Enough milk for right consistency…roughly 1/4 cup
  • 2 tsp. vanilla (this is also a rough estimate because I pour)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift flour, sugars, cocoa and baking soda into a bowl and set aside.
  3. Pour Dr. Pepper into sauce pan and add chocolate chips. Heat on low, stirring until the chips are just melted. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Combine eggs, buttermilk, oil, vanilla and almond extract in mixing bowl and beat on medium for 2 minutes. Gradually add chocolate/Dr. Pepper mixture while mixer is running and beat for another minute. Gradually add the flour/sugar mixture.
  5. Divide into either two or three pans. I am into frosting, so I like three thinner layers. If you do this, make sure you alter your cooking time. For two layers, it calls for a cooking time of 30-35 minutes but with three layers, I think it only cooked for about 22 minutes. I always set the timer for less time and check it so that I can take it out AS SOON AS POSSIBLE for optimum moisture.
  6. Freeze the layers before icing..

If you have been injured in a bicycle or pedestrian related accident or if a loved one has been severely injured or died from this type of accident,
contacting a local Denver pedestrian accident lawyer is often the best option. In fact, make sure you know
where you to get a copy of the accident report to help you and your attorney

personnel on the scene and witnesses who saw the accident.

A Maryland accident attorney would be be able to further evaluate your case to determine
which limitation applies. A trained, licensed Denver car accident lawyer has vast experience in tort (personal injury) law,

out new or pre-owned vehicles.

If photos of the scene can be taken, it’s a good idea.
It is recommended to hire a professional because the claim laws
can vary greatly from state to state, and if you are not familiar with these nuances, you may not
get your fully entitled payout. After treatment, you lie in the
hospital bed not knowing when you’ll be able to go home.

However, there is a limited period for the second appeal. Injury attorneys are lawyers that actually work
to relieve the stress of the hard time by recovering
compensation for the injury. A personal injury lawyer will know about the personal injury law and can get
you right compensation as a victim of the accident.
