Random Recipes - Root Beer Float Cake

Monday, May 17, 2010 Posted by Rita A

Today's random recipe is from the magazine Woman's World from a few years back. Root Beer Float Cake was made by 10 year old Eric Welander. I have made this tasty cake quite a few times. Serve it with vanilla ice cream and it is like a Root Beer Float. Yummy.

Root Beer Float Cake

1 (18.25oz) package yellow cake mix
1 (12oz) bottle root beer
¼ cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
Root Beer Glaze
Vanilla Ice cream

1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; beat at low speed with an electric mixer until dry ingredients are moistened. Beat at medium speed 2 minutes. Pour into a greased and floured 12 cup Bundt Pan.

2. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until a long wooden pick or skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes; remove from pan and cool on wire rack.

3. Pierce top of cake at 2 inch intervals with a long wooden pick. Pour glaze evenly over cake. Cool completely before serving. Serve with ice cream. Yield: 1 (10 inch) cake.

Root Beer Glaze
