With the high cost of everything right now (especially eggs) desserts that require many ingredients seem like they are completely out of our budgets.

After the success of our last soda cake (Mountain Dew flavored), I decided we needed to also make a Dr. Pepper cake.

This Dr. Pepper Soda Cake is made using just 2 main ingredients and it couldn’t be any easier to make.

I did end up topping the cake with some frosting and cherry on top for added flavor but those ingredients are totally optional.

So, if you love Dr. Pepper as much as we do, you are going to love this cake!
