       1 c  Dr. pepper
       4 tb Cocoa
   1 1/2 ts Cinnamon
     1/2 ts Salt
       2 c  Sugar
       2    Eggs; beaten
     1/2 c  Buttermilk
       2 ts Vanilla
       1 ts Soda
       2 c  All-purpose flour
     1/2 c  Margarine

       3 c  Powdered sugar (about)
     1/2 c  Nuts

   Heat together the margarine and Dr. Pepper until margarine
   is just melted. DO NOT BOIL! Sift together flour, sugar,
   cinnamon, salt and cocoa into mixing bowl. Combine eggs,
   buttermilk, soda and vanilla. Add the Dr.Pepper mixture to
   the dry ingredients and blend well. Add the egg mixture.
   Mix well. Pour into a sheet cake pan and bake at 350
   degrees for about 25 minutes or until cake tests done.
   About 5 minutes before the cake is done, start the frosting
   by heating together the margarine, cocoa and Dr. Pepper.
   Then stir in the nuts, vanilla and powdered sugar. Blend
   smooth. Spread evenly on the cake as soon as it is removed
   from the oven and is hot. This recipe makes very good
   cupcakes (about 36). From Mary Bowles, DNSR31A,from
