White trash cooking
From Cougar and Cinder...

Okay, so if understand this, they've made a cake-batter with cola in the recipe and they've topped the deep-fried nuggets of it with coke syrup?

I'm getting inspired. I have a bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper syrup, and I'm not afraid to deep-fry. :)

Lesse, for maximal trashiness, the rest of the batter should be Duncan Hines White Cake Mix and the deep-frying oil needs to be Crisco with all the orginal trans-fat (you know they have a TF free version now).

Most of my internal organs are shutting down just thinking about it.

But, isn't it just the thing for an overcast, chilly day? Hot cocoa and crispy fried soda?

I love you. I really, truly, madly love you.

But my pancreas and spleen insist that you must be punished for this.

Okay, granted there's sugar in the cake mix, but I did say the syrup is Diet Dr. Pepper syrup...

What's the spleen do again? I thought it handled infections in some way.

Hey, I didn't say it had anything to do with their jobs, only that they've filed a petition :-D

I used to have a recipe, which I've sadly lost, for a Dr Pepper chocolate cake. It was actually rather tasty. Moist and dense, with just a hint of cherry flavor to it. I wish I could find it again.

I have a recipe for 7-Up cake, so I'm vaguely familiar with the family of recipes.

Heck, I may HAVE a Dr Pepper recipe. I think I may have purchased a cookbook the time before last time we journeyed to Waco.

Is this it? (I'll bet the recipe as originally published specified Imperial Brand Brown Sugar. And maybe even called for Crisco Oil, heh.)

That one is similar. The one I had called for flat soda, and was baked in a rectangular cake pan.

It's similar enough that I might try and bake it though.

The 7-Up recipe I have calls for the soda to be flat, too. I wonder how much that would change the results?
