These cute and tasty root beer cakes make portable desserts in jars. Root Beer Float Cakes are a festive way to celebrate summer, or any season!
Everyone needs a little something like this every now and again… For no particular reason.
Giving a sweet to your sweeties lifts the spirits.
And who doesn’t love a root beer float?
Or desserts in jars for that matter.
I made these sweet little root beer cakes as a surprise for my babies (8 and 10.)
They came home from camp, hot and disheveled, to cool creamy root beer float cakes, individually packaged, just for them!
Words were unnecessary, they knew they were missed.
Desserts in jars make fabulous edible gifts, picnic items, and birthday party treats.
I often make little portable treats this way, then screw on the lids and store them until just the right moment.
A special occasion, perhaps.
Or last night.
Or tomorrow morning.
Really any occasion calls for the essence of a sweet creamy root beer float.
And when you pull these root beer cakes out, any ordinary moment turns special, just like that!
The root beer cakes alone, are ultra tender with dark sassafras tones, from the combination of molasses, cocoa, and root beer.
The fine moist texture is based on super-fine Gold Medal Flour with just the right amount of moisture. I’m a big fan of Gold Medal Flour because they are so particular about the wheat they use and their milling process. It’s always consistent.
These root beer cakes are superb on their own, yet add the ice cream and extra root beer to ooze down and saturate the cake and you have something utterly irresistible.
Desserts in jars with intense nostalgic root beer float flavor!
