I confess that I’m partial to Dr. Pepper soda and when I heard about using it in baking it made perfect sense to me.  This cake is a tasty morning cake snake cake, or after dinner dessert cake. 

  • 1/2 Cup Shortening
  • 1 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar (Divided)
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 2 1/2 Cups Unbleached Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 Cup Dr. Pepper Soda
  • 3 Cups Apples (Peeled, Cored & Chopped)
  • 3/4 Cup Pecans (Finely Chopped)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In large-size bowl add shortening. With mixer, on medium, cream shortening. Slowly add sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. Beat until well creamed.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, until mixed well. In medium-size bowl sift flour with baking powder, soda, and kosher salt.
  4. Add dry ingredients alternately with Dr. Pepper. Mix well after each addition.
  5. Fold in chopped apples.
