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.

Ingredients

  • 1 box
    yellow cake mix
  • 1 can(s)
    good root beer
  • 1 box
    dream whip
  • ·
    eggs, as cake mix directs
  • ·

How to Make Root Beer Float Cake

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.
