Dutch Oven Root Beer Float Cake
1 (18.25-ounce) package German Chocolate cake mix
1 1/4 cups Root Beer (not diet)
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
2 large Eggs
Root Beer Frosting
Combine first 4 ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat mixture until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into a greased and floured (I like parchment paper too) 12” Dutch Oven. Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake for about 10 minutes. Spread Root Beer Frosting evenly over warm cake.
*350 degrees = 8 coals on the bottom, and 15 on the top of the Dutch Oven
