Root Beer Float Bread

You only need 3 ingredients to make this delicious homemade vegan root beer float bread that tastes like summer and is delightfully sweet and scrumptious. 


Root Beer Float Bread

  • 3 cups SELF RISING flour
  • 1 pint ice cream set out 30 minutes to an hour before making bread so it is softened
  • 12 oz Root Beer *

Optional Root Beer Syrup

  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 2/3 cup Root Beer
  • 1 1/3 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F and grease a 9"x5" loaf pan with nonstick spray or butter

  2. Combine the 3 Root Beer bread ingredients into a large mixing bowl, slowly adding the root beer so it doesn't fizz too much, and mix until well combined and no lumps remain throughout

  3. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes until golden on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean

  4. If making the optional syrup, while the bread bakes, add the vegan butter and root beer to a sauce pan and heat on medium until butter is melted and the mixture begins to bubble.

  5. Once the mixture is gently boiling, slowly add the powdered sugar 1/3 of a cup or so at a time and mixing carefully to make sure the sugar dissolves and nothing stays at the bottom of the pot long enough to burn.

  6. After all of the sugar has been added, continue boiling for 10 minutes stirring constantly so that the sugar begins to caramelize.

  7. Turn heat off and leave the saucepan to sit on hot burner for 5 minutes until the mixture has thickened. You may still need to stir to make sure there is no burning.

  8. Top the bread with desired amount of root beer syrup drizzle if using

  9. Enjoy
