It's taken awhile to get to this cake but I am trying to get down that list (you know that list we all have of the things we want to try out ). Well...we love root beer in this house and I knew this would be a winner. Even thought about cupcakes for a tiny second...but decide to make it a cake instead and send it with Big Daddy in the morning. Smells so good in here :)
1 1/4 c root beer
1/3 c veg oil
3 egg whites
1 tsp root beer concentrate or 1 tbsp root beer flavored syrup
1 container Vanilla frosting
1/3 c crushed root beer flavored hard candies- about 10 (optional)
Bake 32-36 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Cool completely in pan, about 1 hour. Stir root beer concentrate into frosting. Spread over cake. Just before serving, sprinkle with crushed candies (candies will began to melt 1-3 hours after sprinkled on cake). Store in a loosely covered container.
It is so moist and this recipe really captured that yummy root beer flavor. Found this recipe on the Pillsbury website.
