Dr Pepper Cake~Tami’s Corner


I got a new recipe to post courtesy of my dear friend Tami, who now has her own category to feature her dishes right here on my site that is simply titled; “Tami’s Corner”

I really dig her unique dishes that she shares with me along with her use of ingredients, that just fuse into a healthier adapted version. I thought it would be fitting to start us out on the sweeter side with this easy and delightful cake.


Who hasn’t used a soda in a dish or dessert. Granted its been years since I’ve heard the term soda pop cake, but what makes this cake stand out is instead of coke or sprite Tami used Dr Pepper which has a unique taste all on its own.

For this cake use a well greased and floured bundt cake pan.

For this cake use a well-greased and floured bundt cake pan.

This is a must do. It’s rich, moist, and so easy to make, you will have no excuse not to give this a try. Just don’t make this cake when your all alone, cause you might end up eating the dang thing by yourself!!!


1 box yellow cake mix
1 box instant vanilla pudding
4 eggs
3/4 cup oil
1 10 oz. can of Dr. pepper
3/4 cups walnuts, chopped

For the glaze;
1 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla and enough Dr. pepper to make a thin glaze.



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour a bundt pan. Mix all ingredients together and pour into bundt pan. Bake for one hour. After 15-20 minutes cake should come out of bundt cake mold easily. Place on wire rack to cool completely. Pour glaze over the top. Cut and serve.

Rich, moist,Dr pepper cake, what's there to hate about it?

About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.

  1. Hmmm. My husband recently tried a Coca Cola cake recipe, but I’m partial to Dr. Pepper. I may have to twist his arm to try this one. It looks tasty AND moist.
