Cook the Book: Root Beer Bundt Cake

Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, co-owners of Brooklyn cakeshop Baked, specialize in whimsical reworkings of comforting, familiar flavors, of which today's recipe is a perfect example. Evoking the lazy days of summer, their chocolate-root beer Bundt cake is smeared with dark, gooey root beer fudge.

For an even rootier flavor, the authors of Baked: New Frontiers in Baking suggest that you replace half a cup of root beer with the same quantity of root beer schnapps. (I hadn't realized such a thing existed!) To make this a real root beer floatcake, simply serve à la mode.
