So, let’s talk about food for a minute – who loves cake?

This year will be the first year our house does something to celebrate college football, since all my boys like football these days. I will be trying a Dr Pepper cake! YES! I have looked at many recipes and I am pretty sure I found the best one!

Dr Pepper Recipe
1 cup butter
1 cup Dr Pepper
2 eggs
1⁄2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 1⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar

1⁄4 cup butter
3 tablespoons cocoa
chopped nuts
1⁄4 cup Dr Pepper
1 box powdered sugar


  • Heat 1 cup of butter and Dr Pepper.
  • Add the cocoa, cinnamon, flour, and sugar to the butter mixture.
  • Mix the eggs, buttermilk, soda, and vanilla and add to the rest of the mixture.
  • Pour into prepared 8 or 9-inch pans.
  • Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • For the Dr Pepper icing, heat butter, Dr Pepper, and cocoa, stirring until well blended.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Frost cake.

If you don’t like chocolate cake, you can make it vanilla, just substitute out the cocoa powder with some vanilla flavoring. I have also seen people use hot chocolate instead of cocoa powder. Have you baked a Dr Pepper Cake? Let me know and share your pictures, either a successful cake or not!

I am a single mom to 6 children – three teens & three under 10. I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, graduated high school in St. Louis in 1998 (that should tell you how old I am!).

I consider myself an ambivert… Ambiverts are people who don’t really prefer one way of functioning over another. In other words, you could say they’re the neutral, middle-ground hippies. They’re equally comfortable in situations where the introvert feels most at home and situations where the extrovert is having a good time. …so yeah, I can be both and feel comfortable in any setting I am put in. Except, I would rather text or email rather than talk on the phone, haha!

I have been blogging and reviewing off and on for several years; it all started when I won a giveaway for a book – hooked ever since. What can you expect from me? Family friendly recipes, household items and decor, makeup and beauty reviews, and giveaways!
