Add the eggs, one at a time and mix well with hand mixer.
Finally, add the vanilla and Dr. Pepper and blend.

Today marks the beginning of Spring Break in Atlanta!

Someone is going to be surprised when they
pick him up after school and are headed south!


  1. my husband discovered "Dr. Pepper" years ago, when he was in the Army Reserve and was stationed in the South. guess we up north, did not have it yet. :-)

    no I have never made that cake! but it looks like something I could surprise him with, some day. thank you.

    oh how delightful. he is going to visit Mickey and Friends!!! :-)))))

    gentle hugs,

    1. Dr. Pepper is probably only served down south....the Northern states seemed to be partial to "Pepsi!" Especially in Maine...hard to find a "coke" anywhere! Yes. this is a fabulous chooclate cake! I think your husband would love it!

  2. Yes, I've heard of this cake for years, and no, I've never tried it but I think it might be about time. :)
    Who's headed south? Who is on Spring BREAK! I want a Spring Break!!

    1. my daughter and her family are headed to Disney World. It was a surprise for our grandson...super excited. I think you will love the cake Mona...treat yourself and your sweet PH. Hugs!


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
