Dr. Pepper Cupcake Recipe


For the cake -

1 box of chocolate cake mix

1/2 cup melted butter

3 eggs

1 cup of Dr. Pepper

For the frosting -

1/2 cup butter, softened 

4 cups powdered sugar

3 TBSP Dr. Pepper

1 tsp Vanilla 

3 tsp Maraschino cherry juice 

Dash of Nutmeg

Dash of Lemon Juice

Dash of Ginger

Maraschino Cherries for Topping


1.  Preheat oven to 350.   Start with making your cake mix.  Add the cake mix, melted butter, 3 eggs and 1 cup of Dr. Pepper into a large mixing bowl.  Mix well with spoon.  Due to the carbonation of the soda you might need to slowly add the Dr. Pepper while mixing.  Once completely mixed put the cake mix into your cupcake tins.  

2.  Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes.  Once baked let cool completely.  

3.  While the cupcakes are cooling begin your frosting.  In a medium mixing bowl add the butter and powdered sugar.  Mix with hand beater slowly until mixture is frosting consistency.  

4.  Add Dr. Pepper, vanilla, cherry juice, nutmeg, lemon juice and ginger to frosting.  Beat again with hand mixer. Look for stiff peaks off of your mixer.  If you want more of a pink frosting add a drop of red food coloring.  

5.  Ice Cupcakes as usual.  Add a Maraschino Cherry on top!  Perfect treat for any cupcake lover or Dr. Pepper Fan!!
