Soda Cake – Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew, Root Beer…

Anyone not ever tried a soda cake?

I’m almost certain soda cakes are an early slice of heaven.

Ingredients

Cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan.

1 (18 1/4 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1 (3 1/2 ounce) package chocolate or chocolate fudge pudding mix 1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten
10 ounces Dr. Pepper

In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, oil, eggs and Dr. Pepper. Mix until all ingredients are moistened.

Pour into prepared 9×13 inch pan and bake for 30 too 35 minutes. Or in a tube pan for 45 minutes.
Cool completely.

Once the cake is cooled, I’ll usually make whipped cream (heavy cream, sugar, pinch of salt, almond or vanilla flavoring) and adding a dollop to each slice and garnishing with a maraschino cherry. (Bit of trivia. Did you know they actually make peppermint flavor maraschino cherries, that have been dyed green. Yeah. I’m apparently not a maraschino cherry connoisseur. I just know the red ones are good, and the vodka ones are even better.)

Can also make a glaze instead of piling on the whipped cream.

Glaze

Glaze

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Dr. Pepper

Mix together butter, sugar and Dr. Pepper in a saucepan and bring to a boil on the stove. Boil for two minutes. Pour glaze onto cake while glaze is still hot.

Other Variations

Mountain dew soda, lemon cake mix, lemon pudding
Cream soda, white cake mix, white chocolate pudding
Orange cream soda, white cake mix, coconut pudding – Add toasted, shredded coconut
Shasta raspberry soda, white cake mix, cheesecake pudding – Use raspberries as garnish. Could do the same, but find strawberry soda.

See the trend…

Go forth and experiment.
