Dutch Oven – Root Beer Float Cake


Recipe # 4 from Pat Boydstun. Thanks Pat for your support!

Root Beer Float Cake

This is not my recipe, it was done at the IDOS spring convention in 2009. I don’t remember who to give credit to – but this is really good

1 (18.25-ounce) package German chocolate cake mix

1 1/4 cups root beer (not diet)

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 large eggs

Rootbeer Frosting

Combine first 4 ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat mixture until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into a greased and floured (I like parchment paper too) 12 inch Dutch Oven.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake for about 10 minutes. Spread Root Beer Frosting evenly over warm cake.

Root Beer Frosting

1/2 cup butter or margarine

7 tablespoons root beer (not diet)

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

1(16-ounce) package powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil over medium heat, stirring until butter melts. Remove from heat; whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth.
