Homemade Root Beer Float Cupcakes

  • Root Beer Float Cupcakes, makes 24.

    What you'll need:

    2 2/3 cups flour
    2 cups sugar
    1/4 cup cocoa
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon root beer extract
    2/3 cup oil
    2 teaspoons vinegar
    2 cups water

  • In a bowl whisk together the dry ingredients (the first 5 listed above). In another bowl stir together the wet ingredients (the last 4 listed above). Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry and stir until just combined and nearly no lumps remain. This batter will be quite liquid.

  • Pour the batter into prepared cupcake pans so that each cup is 2/3 full. Bake at 350°F for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick insert in a cupcake comes out clean.

  • Root Beer Butter cream Frosting, makes 2 1/2 cups
    1 cup (two sticks) softened butter
    3 teaspoons root beer extract
    2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon cream (Or half and half)

  • Whip together the softened butter and extract until well combined and almost fluffy. Begin incorporating the powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing in between. If you find the frosting gets too thick add a little cream. Pipe onto cooled cupcakes. And voilà!

  • Delicious root beer float cupcakes!
