Dr Pepper Pound Cake Recipe
Dr Pepper Pound Cake Recipe

This Dr. pepper Pound Cake Recipe is a delicious recipe for cake that’s both unique and familiar. This pound cake uses Dr. Pepper to add some subtle vanilla cola flavor that will make this cake stand out from the crowd. Even your friends and family who aren’t fans of Dr. Pepper will love this pound cake. The cake itself is delicious, but by far the best thing about this dessert recipe is the caramel and vanilla sauces that are drizzled on the top. Serve this cake nice and cool on a summer day, but be sure to save a piece for yourself!


Preparation Time15 min

Cooking Time1 hr 20 min



  • 10 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup Cherry Dr. Pepper
  • Vanilla drizzle
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean extract
  • 1 jar caramel sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10 cup bundt pan.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add in the sugar and continue mixing for 3-4 minutes, until light and fluffy.

  4. On low speed, add the flour a little bit at a time, until fully incorportated. Mix in the salt.

  5. On low speed, add the Dr. Pepper until well mixed and the batter is smooth.

  6. Pour the batter into the bundt pan and bake for 80-90 minutes until done. It is done when a wooden skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean

  7. Let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Carefully invert the cake onto a wire rack to cool completely.

  8. While the cake is cooling, prepare the vanilla drizzle.

  9. In a medium bowl, whisk the confectioners' sugar, cream, and vanilla until a smooth and pourable consistency is achieved.

  10. When the cake has cooled, place it on a cake platter.

  11. Pour the vanilla drizzle over the cake.

  12. Warm about 1 cup of the caramel sauce and drizzle over the cake. Top with chopped pecans.

This cake was so GOOD! It was hard to stick to just one piece.

Not a huge fan of dr pepper, but the cake was delicious!

This dessert was SO good! I am not the biggest fan of soda, specifically Dr. Pepper. But, this Dr. Pepper flavoring was so subtle. It was the perfect amount of flavor and sweetness! Will totally be trying this again!

Dr. Pepper is my beverage of choice, so imagine my delight when I found this recipe for CAKE using it! It's so moist, just the right amount of sweetness, and frankly, is so good it doesn't even need the frosting.

the frosting on this cake makes it extra special.

The pound cake was moist and not dry, and the toppings were a good finishing touch on a not too sweet dessert!

This cake was the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. Not too sweet, but still enough to satisfy your sweet tooth! It also wasn't too dense for a pound cake, so it didn't feel as heavy as regular pound cakes often do.

Dr. Pepper is my family's soft drink of choice so it's definitely my favorite. I really loved this cake. It had the buttery texture of pound cake but also picked up some of those 23 flavors from the Dr. Pepper. Even a small slice will satisfy any sweet tooth.

This cake was sweet and delicious! I highly recommend it.

This cake was very tasty - especially the frosting. However, I was expecting it to have more of a Dr. Pepper flavor.

This Dr. Pepper pound cake is serious business. It's sweet, delicious, and so good. I had some for the first time today, and I loved it.

To be honest, I never would have guessed there was Dr. Pepper in this cake when I took the first bite! It is really soft and delicious. Definitely recommend!

Oh my Gosh, I am in love! I have to be really careful with this recipe, I can see me eating the whole cake. I love Dr. Pepper soda and used in a cake recipe-wow.. This Dr. Pepper Pound Cake is to die for. It taste so good I have a hard time walking a way from the table. The Grand kids love this too. I put extra caramel and vanilla sauce over the top and sides of mine and it is so go.. I can't say any thing bad about this cake recipe. This is my go to recipe when ever I need a great tasting cake. Thank you so much for sharing this free dessert recipe.
