Texas Chocolate Dr. Pepper Cake

Dr. Pepper has taken pride in its uniquely sweet flavor since it was created in Waco, Texas. The soft drink's sweetness is what gives this Texas Chocolate Dr. Pepper Cake a wonderfully moist texture without tasting like you're eating a can of soda. Making it from scratch rather than with a boxed cake mix will make it the best Dr. Pepper cake you've had. While it's still hot, smother it with a layer of Dr. Pepper frosting and enjoy.
