Dr. Pepper Cake

I got this recipe from the Glenn & Friends YouTube channel. He’s one of my favourite food content creators. If you like Dr. Pepper and cake, this recipe is for you.


  • Half a can of Dr Pepper
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 150gm chocolate
  • 115gm butter
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1tsp vanilla


  • 100gm chocolate
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup Dr Pepper
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups icing sugar


Combine the Dr Pepper, chocolate, white and brown sugar and butter in a saucepan over medium heat until melted, stir occasionally to combine. Don’t boil the mixture.

Leave to cool.

Mix baking soda, powder, flour, and salt together in a bowl.

Mix the buttermilk and vanilla together in a separate bowl.

Add two eggs to the buttermilk and vanilla and whisk together. Mix this into the cooled chocolate mixture.

While whisking, add the dry mix slowly to the chocolate mixture.

Pour into cake tin and cook at 190C for 35mins

To make the icing, melt the chocolate and let cool. Cream the butter and slowly add about half the icing sugar. Add the melted chocolate, vanilla and salt. Add remaining icing sugar.
