My oldest daughter just had a birthday and turned 11. Wow, already!
She chose a Dr. Pepper Texas Chocolate Cake for her Birthday cake. We baked it together. I wish I could share the recipe but according to the copyright laws I found, I can't.
The recipe is in this cookbook which is full of yummy things whether you like B-B-Q-(I don't) or not. I have not tried the cake as I have always been sugar free whenever we've baked it. My family assures me that it is yummy! My chocolate hater even likes it. They say it has a Dr. Pepper flavor to it.
Here are the ingredients. I substitute butter for the margarine and milk for the buttermilk.
Hannah helping. She sewed the apron a few years ago. I think it's time for another sewing lesson!
Here it is finished and iced. It's a layer cake but I just baked it in a glass dish and it turned out fine.
Ready to eat, aren't you hungry now?
And here is the birthday girl enjoying her presents after her birthday meal. She ordered ham, baked beans, homemade rolls, mashed potatoes, and a veggie platter.
Make a wish!
I hope it was a good one!
