1 package (about 18.5 ounces) yellow cake mix

1 1/2 cups root beer

1/4 cup vegetable oil

3 large eggs

Root Beer Glaze

  • Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan.
  • Stir the cake mix, root beer, oil and eggs in a medium bowl until the mixture is smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan for 15 minutes on a wire rack. Remove the cake from the pan and cool completely on the wire rack.
  • Poke holes in the cake with a toothpick or fork, 2 inches apart. Pour the Root Beer Glaze evenly over the cake. 

RECIPE TIPS

  • Root Beer Glaze: Stir 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and 3 tablespoons root beer in a small bowl with a fork until the mixture is smooth.

I baked this today.  It is very moist, but does not taste like a root beer float. :(  It tastes more like vanilla.  My boys ate it and liked it. :)

 Thanks for taking the time to tell us how it turned out. I'm thinking about trying this one myself.
