Dr. Pepper Cake

Dr. Pepper Cake

You'll need: flour & cocoa powder salt & baking soda ground cinnamon butter  granulated sugar Dr. Pepper eggs & buttermilk vanilla  powdered sugar pecans

Pour the melted butter into a large bowl. Whisk in the Dr. Pepper and the sugar until smooth.

Whisk in the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla until fully incorporated.

Then, whisk in the dry ingredients until a smooth cake batter forms.

Pour the batter into a prepared baking dish. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Just before the cake is done baking, prepare the frosting: place the butter and Dr. Pepper in a saucepan until just until melted, remove from  heat and stir in remaining ingredients.

Pour the warm icing over the hot cake immediately after pulling it from the oven. Use a spatula to spread it.
