Chocolate Root Beer Cake

I love this cake. You can taste the root beer, but it isn’t overpowering.


2 Cups Unbleached Flour

2 Cups Sugar

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

¼ Teaspoon Sea Salt

1 Cup Softened Butter

½ Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

2 Eggs

½ Cup Buttermilk or Sour Milk

2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

6 Tablespoons Root Beer Extract

Preheat the oven to 350° F and grease a bundt cake pan. Set aside. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt and set aside. In a medium saucepan combine the butter, cocoa powder and 1 cup of water. Bring the mixture just to boiling and stir constantly. Remove from the heat and add the cocoa mixture to the flour mixture and beat with an electric mixer until combined. Add the eggs, butter, milk, vanilla and root beer extract. Beat for another minute until the batter is thin. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt cake pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until done. You can either sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost with Chocolate Buttermilk Frosting. Serves 8

Chocolate Buttermilk Frosting

In a saucepan combine ¼ cup butter, 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons of buttermilk. Bring to a boil and then remove from the heat. Add 2 ¼ cups powdered sugar and ½ teaspoon vanilla. Beat until smooth. Pour the warm frosting of the cake and spread evenly.
