Here's a cake that will remind you of a summer
root beer float.
I couldn't find the spice cake mix I usually use,
so I added cinnamon spice blend to a yellow cake mix.
I used 2 t cinnamon spice blend,
(like a pumpkin or apple pie spice mix.)
Mine was from Pampered Chef.
You can mix your own. Use about
1-1/2 t cinnamon and 1/4 t each nutmeg, ginger, clove or allspice.
Use 1/1/4 C root beer in place of the water.
Add 1 t rum extract.
If you don't have rum extract use vanilla extract
or 1 T rum.
Combine all the ingredients and beat
as per the directions on the box.
Pour into a sprayed bundt pan.
Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350.
Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes then invert onto a cake plate.
It comes out easily.
Dust with powdered sugar....or
Make a glaze with
2 C powdered sugar and 3 T root beer.
Drizzle on cooled cake.
My cake was still a tiny bit warm.
Because somebody wanted a slice!
I stored the rest in my cute as a daisy vintage cake tin.
