Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake
1 Can (12 oz.) Dr. Pepper
1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix - Just the cake mix, nothing else from the boxed recipe
1 tbsp Espresso Powder
1 tsp Salt
1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips
Powdered Sugar (for dusting)
Preheat oven according to the directions on the boxed cake mix. Usually 350 degrees. Spray baking pan w/ non-stick spray.
In a bowl, combine the cake mix, Dr. Pepper, espresso powder, salt. Pour into baking pan and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Pat the chips down into the batter a little bit. Batter will be thicker than a normal boxed cake mix. Bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Cool cake completely before dusting w/ powdered sugar. The cake will be slightly denser than a normal boxed cake and super fudgy. Also good topped w/ a fruit compote or a ganache. Enjoy.
* The flavor of soda and cake mix can be changed to anything you'd like, for example: Cherry Coke & chocolate cake or Lemon Lime Soda and a white cake mix. Possibilities are endless.
** If you don't have espresso powder, you can use 2 or 3 tablespoons of brewed (and cooled) coffee. The coffee just intensifies the chocolate flavor.
