Dr. Pepper Cake

This is one of those things I HAD to try once I heard about it. Dr. Pepper.... in a cake... hmm... and actually it was REALLY good! The frosting just kind of soaked into the cake and it was very chocolaty. I'll be making this again for sure.

1 ½ c dr. pepper
½ c canola oil
1 stick butter
4 Tb cocoa powder
2 c sugar
2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
½ c buttermilk

1 stick butter
4 Tb cocoa powder
8 Tb milk
4 C powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9 X 13 pan. Combine Dr. Pepper, oil, butter and cocoa powder in a saucepan over medium heat. When it comes to a simmer. Mix well and turn the stove off.
Mix the dry ingredients together; add to the dr. pepper mixture and mix well but don’t over beat. In a small separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs and buttermilk together, then add them to the saucepan and mix the batter well.
Pour into prepared pan and bake at 350 for 20 – 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
In a saucepan, combine butter, cocoa powder and milk over medium heat, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth. Add in the powdered sugar a little at a time, combining after each addition until smooth. Pour over warm cake.
