Root Beer Float Cake

Tomorrow we will be celebrating a fellow teacher's birthday at lunch. I volunteered to make the birthday cake. It's a recipe from Paula Deen's Holiday Magazine. It smells yummy. The glaze came a bit too thin, so once it dries I'll remove the excess from the cake carrier.

Root Beer Float Cake

1 (18.25-ounce) yellow cake mix with pudding in the mix
1 (5.1 ounce) box vanilla instant pudding mix
1 1/4 cup root beer
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 10-inch fluted cake pan.

2. In a large bowl combine cake mix, pudding mix, root beer, vegetable oil and eggs. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon batter into prepared pan, and bake for 45 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack. Spoon glaze over cooled cake.

Root Beer Glaze

2 cups confectioners' sugar

3 tablespoons root beer

In a small bowl, combine sugar and root beer, whisking until smooth.

Enjoy!

Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I've been days trying to find it. My hubby wants it, but we lost the magazine during Thanksgiving.
