Dr. Pepper Cake!

 

 
This cake recipe uses a favorite southern drink, Dr. Pepper, to make it exceptionally moist and yummy!   Dr. Pepper is a soft drink that you either love or can't stand it seems.  I like a good cold Dr. Pepper every now and then myself.   I think it's good to cook with, not only because of the carbonation, but because of the slightly peppery bite it has.   If you are not a Dr. Pepper fan, don't worry. because this cake doesn't end up tasting much like Dr. Pepper.  The Dr. Pepper just gives it a really nice light and moist texture and a good flavor.   Here is what you will need:
 
1 box chocolate cake mix (I used Devils Food)
1 (3.4 oz.) box instant vanilla pudding
4 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
10 oz. Dr. Pepper
1 tsp. vanilla
 
Glaze
2 cups powdered sugar
3-4 Tbs. Dr. Pepper (just enough to make the glaze thin enough to drizzle over the cake
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup walnuts, chopped
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 
Mix the cake mix, vanilla pudding, eggs, oil, Dr. Pepper and vanilla.   Mix just until all well combined.  Don't over mix.   Pour into a well greased Bundt pan.   Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
 
Allow to cool in the pan for about 20 minutes then invert onto a cake plate.
 
Stir together the powdered sugar, vanilla and just enough Dr. Pepper to make a glaze.  Drizzle over the cake.  Then sprinkle the chopped walnuts over the top.

  2. I have a question that maybe you can answer. If a recipe calls for large eggs, and my hens are only laying small ones at this time, wouldI need to increase the amount of eggs to be equivalent to the lg. eggs?

    1. Yes, you do. If the eggs are not extremely small just add an extra one, if very small add a couple extra.
