The idea of putting root beer into cake was something that really intrigued me. I just couldn’t wrap my head around what that would possibly taste like. Could you really taste the root beer at all? Cause I really like root beer so if you can taste it in cake form, that would be just awesome.
But alas, after baking this fancy lookin root beer cake, I got my answer. Sadly you cannot really taste the root beer that much. 🙁 But wait, don’t click off this recipe just yet!
Yes, you may not be able to taste a strong root beer flavor BUT this cake is super yummy! It turns out to be a really extra moist chocolate cake. It’s hard to describe but the root beer and allspice give this chocolate cake just a hint of spice flavor. It’s quite nice actually.
I don’t know about you but chocolate cakes tend to dry out on me. Whether they are boxed or homemade, I always seem to end up with dry cake. Well, except for my Oreo Cake which had pudding in it which I think helps keep it moist.
You really don’t have to worry about that with this cake. I guarantee you will end up with a moist rich chocolate cake with this recipe. And it’s kinda cool to tell people it’s got root beer in it!
