You Can't Drink This Version


My son loves root beer floats and asked my mom if she could make a root beer float cake. Well, of course she can! There's a recipe for everything out there these days!


Root Beer Float Cake


1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist white cake mix
1 1/4 cups root beer
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon root beer concentrate or 1 tablespoon root beer flavored syrup
1 container Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
1/3 cup crushed root beer flavored hard candies (about 10)


Heat oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour.

In large bowl, beat cake mix, root beer, oil, and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.

Bake 32 to 36 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan, about 1 hour.

Stir root beer concentrate into frosting. Spread over cake. Just before serving, sprinkle with crushed candies. (Candies will begin to melt 1 to 3 hours after sprinkled on cake.) Store loosely covered.

Recipe notes: For maximum cake height, keep baking spray off the sides of the pan. The cake will climb the sides of the pan better. For a fun soda fountain touch, insert half of a plastic straw into each piece of cake.

Notes: This wasn't exactly what my son was expecting. I'm not sure what he was expecting though. He ended up pouring root beer on top of his cake and he was happy with it that way. Ha ha! As for the rest of us, we were happy with the cake without pouring root beer on top of it.
