My coworker Apryle invented these, and I promised I would make them for her.
This is a soda cake.
I made soda cupcakes once before (Orange Soda Cupcakes), so I was excited to try a new flavor combo.
Chocolate Fudge Cake + a can of Dr. Pepper. That’s it! (Literally – no eggs, water, oil, anything. Just a can of soda.)
Bake em up for 18-20 min at 350*.
For the Cherry Frosting:
1 lb powdered sugar
1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter
3 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cherry extract
red food coloring
Mix all ingredients until smooth and fluffy. Pipe or spread onto cupcakes.
My brother’s review of Apryle’s cupcake:
“The cherry is almost too overwhelming, but it works with the chocolate cupcake. The Dr. Pepper taste is subtle but it’s definitely there.”
….and Apryle’s review:
“The cherry is really sweet and the Dr. Pepper is subtle, but it was really good!”
