Today I tried the Root Beer Cake from the Cake Mix Doctor.. It was so horrible to taste, yet to look at!!
The cake completely flattened after I took it out of the oven to cool. As I kept looking at it, I had a feeling it wasn't going to be a good cake after it got so so flat! And this was a 13x9x2 pan.

So, I cut it into squares and it looked like "raw cornmeal, mushy" YUCKY!!
I could probably used it for wall paper paste..
I followed the recipe to the " t ", it tasted bad!! I told my DH when he asked if I made the root beer cake, and when I told him sure did, he asked, "well", how did it turn out?", I said, "wanna see?"... and I showed him the trash can.
I will never use this crazy mix doctor book again. In fact, I threw mine in the trash. This is the 4th time, I tried a recipe from this book, and the cakes tasted yucky but looked HORRIBLE too....
The only thing that turned out good and tasted like root beer was the root beer icing I made for the new cake.
Just wanted to share....... icon_mad.gif

I'm not familiar with that recipe...

Did the Root Beer Cake Mix Doctor recipe yield 7 cups of batter, the required amount for a 13x9x2 pan. (If not, then that's why your cake was so flat.)
