Source: In honor of the free Dr. Pepper give away, I thought this recipe would be fun. This is an old recipe I have made for years for special birthdays. It is a very moist cake and it always gets lots of compliments. It was taken from a hosipital cookbook that was complied for a fundraiser. Enjoy, Happy Baking!
