I’m planning on trying out a new recipe for our Father’s Day barbecue — Dr. Pepper Cake! We’ve always got a bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper in our fridge, since J. loves it. I thought this recipe would be a perfect special treat for him, while still being yummy for the rest of our family (it’s chocolate-based).
However, I think Cookie Madness’ version looks like it has frosting that would be more my style (I can’t imagine anything with bittersweet Ghirardelli chocolate chips wouldn’t be delicious). Rhid’s recipe is a little different, with more buttermilk and mini marshmallows added. Patricia Mitchell’s version eliminates the buttermilk and uses oatmeal (but J. wouldn’t like the coconut in the frosting).
If you’re a peanut butter fan, try Angela’s recipe, which has a PB frosting. You can even make a Dr. Pepper Cake using vanilla cake mix.
Finally, and only for those with a serious sweet tooth, try the Dr. Pepper Cherry Marshmallow Cake, which includes cherry Jell-O, cherry pie filling, and marshmallows.
Excuse me, I need to go brush my teeth…
