I have been looking for a very quick but simple Root Beer Cake recipe.

My question,, not only for a recipe for a root beer cake., but can you just use a yellow cake mix recipe, and instead of adding the water ingredients, just add root beer?

In the cake mix cakes recipe section I think page 5 there are two recipes for root beer cakes. One uses choc cake mix and the other yellow cake mix

I planned on trying it with white cake mix and using rootbeer instead of water and adding root beer extract (LoRann's is probably the best). I had actually planned to try it using the WASC recipe, but haven't had the chance yet.

CC member chikie tried it with the rootbeer only and said it could've had a stronger flavor.

ok, thank you for the replies. I have read that too about adding some root beer extract for more flavoring.
I'm wondering also, if I boil down some of the root beer to make it sorta like a syrup and add it that way also instead of the extract?

Any hoo,, I'll be trying out this recipe this weekend I'll let you all know how it came out.

Thanks again.... icon_wink.gif

Hi there........
Yes I did try the root beer cake recipe and it not only turned out "yucky" but it looked yucky, tasted yucky. I threw the whole thing out along with the Cake Mix doctor book. It was horrible.....

Sorry to sound so direct..... icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif
