Root Beer Float Cake

With permission from Gooseberry Patch I give you yet another YUMMY recipe. Enjoy!

Our family LOVED this cake. So simple and easy. I had to use a gluten free cake mix and adjust some measurements because of that but it still came out yummy. Below is the original recipe, no changes made.

18-1/2 oz. pkg. white cake mix

2-1/4 oz. cup root beer, chilled and divided

1/4 c. oil

2 eggs, beaten

1 env. whipped topping mix ( I used heaving whipping cream)


In a large bowl, combine dry cake mix, 1-1/4 cups root beer, oil and eggs; beat until well blended. Pour into a greased 13”x9” baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes; cool completely. In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat whipped topping mix and remaining root beer until soft peaks form; frost cake. Makes 24 servings.

This recipe is from



  1. I've gotta have this cookbook!!

  2. i have made this cake several times and we all love it! quick and easy cake!

  3. This looks like one I need to give to my friend who regularly wins ribbons at the state fair. Lillian Lane, jkklane@surewest.net

  4. I'd love to try this cake with a scoop of Haagen Dazs Coffee Ice Cream on top. Ever since my mother introduced me to root beer floats with coffee ice cream, I haven't been satisfied with just plain vanilla! Gonna try it sometime soon. Thanks!

  5. I made this cake on Sunday and is was yum, yum, yum, yummy, yum! I won't tell you how many pieces I had :)
    Peace and blessings to your day.
