    Mysterygirl's Note:

    Gale Gand and Jacquelyn Smola did this one their show Sweet Dreams. I've modified it a bit to suit our tastes but it went over well at a recent birthday party. Do not substitute root beer flavoring for the extract as it doesn't have the same concentrated flavor. Also, when I made this in a 9x13 pan it baked up very high so take that into consideration when you decide which pan(s) to use.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Cake

    Frosting

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Grease and flour 2 (9-inch) cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper or 1 9 x 13.
    3. 3
      In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter; then add the sugar and continue mixing until light and fluffy.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, sift together the cake flour, baking powder, pudding and salt.
    5. 5
      With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the water and eggs to the butter mixture until blended.
    6. 6
      Mix in the root beer extract and vanilla. Alternately add the flour mixture and milk to form a smooth batter.
    7. 7
      Pour the batter into the prepared pan(s) and bake until just set, about 30 to 40 minutes for round pans, 45-50 for a 9x13. When using round pans allow to cool in pans for 5 minutes, and then invert onto cooling racks to cool completely before frosting.
    8. 8
      Frosting: In a standing mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the confectioners' sugar and butter.
    9. 9
      Mix on low speed until well blended; then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes.
    10. 10
      Add the cream and vanilla and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute more, adding more cream if needed to reach spreading consistency.

      Enjoyed both warm and chilled. Everyone loved it. I did leave out the pudding since I only had chocolate, and didn't realize until I was already mixing things; and I used dream whip made with root beer instead of milk for the frosting, although I did follow your recipe for the filling.

      Tried it twice following the recipe exactly and not worth the effort....both times the cake fell and all I ended up with was cake on the sides and cookie bar in the the middle. Great if you wanted to innovate and bake two things at once, otherwise it was a bust.

      I made this a while ago, but forgot to rate it. My family really enjoyed this at our annual summer get away. I actually bought the rootbeer extract used for homemade rootbeer and it had a wonderful flavor. Thanks for sharing!
