Dr Pepper Chocolate Fudge Football Cake

This ultra rich, super fudgy cake has just 2 ingredients : cake mix and a can of Dr Pepper soda!
 I made it for my Dr Pepper College Football Fans Party and it was a hit! 
Scroll down for the party photos and the easy recipe.
I hosted a Fro Yo and Football party last November sponsored by Houseparty and Dr Pepper.  
I thought since this was a dessert party that a chocolate soda cake would be the perfect treat.
We met our friends at our local fro yo spot, watched football, and enjoy fro yo, cake, and Dr Pepper. It doesn't get much better than that! 
I found this photo on Pinterest with some other tasty soda + cake ideas you may enjoy.
I think the Creamsicle Cake sounds delish!

The best part of baking is always licking the beaters, right?!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 box chocolate fudge cake mix
  • 1 12 ounce can of Dr Pepper soda
  • chocolate fudge frosting, optional
  • white decorative icing, optional

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add cake mix and one can of Dr Pepper soda to a large bowl.
  3. Mix until combined then pour into a greased baking dish. I prefer an extra thick cake so I used an 8x8 but 9x13 works too.
  4. Bake as directed on the cake mix box.
  5. Let cool then invert on a cutting board or platter.
  6. If you want to shape it like a football, I used a small football shaped bowl and cut out the 8x8 cake into a football shape.
  7. Frost with chocolate fudge frosting all over then add white icing football laces to the center of the cake.
Notes: No eggs, water, or oil needed. You can use any canned soda you like. 
Yes, you read right: 
only two ingredients are needed to make this cake: 
boxed chocolate fudge cake mix and one 12 oz can of soda.
Start with a can of Dr Pepper or pour 1 1/2 cups like I did.
Add cake mix and Dr Pepper soda to a large bowl.
Mix well.
Pour into a greased baking dish. It does not rise a lot so I prefer 8x8.
Bake as directed on the cake mix box.
Let the cake cool then invert on a cutting board or platter.
 I used a small football shaped bowl as the outline.
Cut out the cake into the football shape.
Now it's time to decorate! 
Tip: you can use the extra cake and frosting and make cake pops!
Frost with chocolate fudge frosting all over then add 
white icing football laces to the center of the cake.
We love sharing good food with good friends.
All ready for Football and Fro Yo {and Dr Pepper Cake}!
It must have been good- the kids dug right in with forks!
