Dr. Pepper Cake

I made a cake for Mother Hen's birthday today and since it is her fave drink, a Dr. Pepper cake was a natural choice. I made a small cake for her and a small one for us and it was some kind of good. Let me know if you try it!

Dr. Pepper Cake

1 cup butter

1 cup Dr. Pepper soft drink
2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt
4 tablespoons cocoa
2 beaten eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

Melt butter. Add the Dr. Pepper soft drink and stir well.

Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.

Add the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and marshmallows.

Pour the Dr. Pepper mixture over the rest of the ingredients in the mixing bowl.

Mix them together well.

Bake at 350 degrees in a greased 9x12 inch pan (I used two 8x8 inch pans) for 30-35 minutes.

Dr. Pepper Frosting

1/2 cup Dr. Pepper soft drink
1/4 cup butter
3 tablespoons cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat Dr. Pepper, cocoa, and butter, but don't bring to a hard boil. Stir in rest of ingredients and mix together well.

Spread Dr. Pepper frosting on while cake is still hot.
