Units Scale
  • 1 c. Pepsi
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 heaping tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 2 c. flour
  • 4 oz. Bakers Chocolate, melted
  • 1 tbsp.vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • 6 tbsp.milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 c. powdered sugar
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees and spray a 9X13 pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and sugar. In a large saucepan, melt the oil, butter, and add Pepsi and cocoa powder and bring to a boil. Once the mixture has begun to boil remove from heat and using a handheld or standing mixer, slowly pour into flour/sugar mixture. Allow batter to cool for about 5 minutes. 
  3. Next, add Bakers Chocolate (you can use semi-sweet chocolate chips if you want), vanilla extract, and the half cup buttermilk. Add eggs one at a time and finally baking soda. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minute or until a toothpick can be inserted and comes out clean
  4. Allow cake to cool and begin to prepare the frosting. In a medium saucepan melt butter, cocoa powder, and milk to a boil and remove from heat. Whisk in the powdered sugar and add vanilla extract. Pour on top of the cake and set in the refrigerator and/or cover at room temperature until ready to serve.


Note: the original recipe mentioned pouring the frosting on top of the cake while the cake is still warm. I allowed my cake to cool for about 20-30 minutes before I poured over the frosting, and my cake came out fine.
