(1 review) Write a Review




  • 1 box super moist white cake mix
  • 1-3/4 cups cold root beer, divided
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 envelope whipped topping mix (Dream Whip)
  • 4 mini disposable loaf pans


In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cake mix, 1-1/4 cups root beer, oil and eggs on low speed for 2 minutes. Grease two of the mini loaf pans and fill half full with the cake batter. In any size CanCooker place rack in the bottom of the CanCooker and add water to the top of the rack. Place cakes on rack and on medium heat bring to a steam. Steam cakes for thirty minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Repeat until all batter is used. Carefully remove and cool on cooling rack 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the whipped topping mix and remaining root beer. Beat until soft peaks form. Frost cake and enjoy this refreshing summer cake.

    amazing flavor but the whipped topping took a minute to make first time ever using the whip it additive going to be doing that more often because the flavor it adds to something so simple. The CanCooker is the only way to make desert.
