Root Beer Floats are my favorite ice cream treat. This cake does the same for me and its easy to make.

I got this recipe from a newspaper several years ago.

Prep:
15 Min
Cook:
30 Min

Ingredients

1 box
yellow cake mix
1 can(s)
good root beer
1 box
dream whip
eggs, as cake mix directs
oil, as cake mix directs
1 tsp
root beer extract, optional, this intensifies the root beer flavor of the cake

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare cake mix adding eggs and oil exactly as box directs. Substitute root beer for water called for. Add root beer extract if using. Pour batter into a greased 9 by 13 pan and bake as directed on box. Cool.
2
For root beer float topping: Prepare Dream Whip with root beer substituted for the milk. Use both envelopes of Dream Whip to make a good amount of topping. Chill well.
3
To serve: Cut cake into squares and place a large amount of topping on cake.
4
NOTE: Let root beer sit a few minutes before measuring to assure accuracy. It bubbles so much you can end up with a dry cake if you don't give it a chance to release the bubbles. The flavor of this cake is light and most people like it but I actually like a stronger flavor and added the extract to the cake mix because of that.
