Fried Root Beer Float

Julie shows you how to make this Fried Root Beer Float, delicious!

Ingredients

Batter

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 bottle root beer
  • Pinch of salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Filling

  • White bread, crusts cut off
  • Vanilla ice cream

Steps

Batter

  1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt and root beer. The batter should be thin and lumpy. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat oil on medium heat (350F). You'll know the oil is at the right temperature when you stick the end of a wooden spoon in the pot and it begins to bubble around it. Prep a plate with a paper towel on it to catch the grease after the tempura is fried.
  3. Dip ice cream/bread balls in the root beer batter, then fry until golden.

Filling

  1. Make balls of ice cream using a large ice cream scoop. Place them on a baking sheet and return to freezer for 10 minutes. Using a rolling pin, roll out the bread to thin it slightly. Use it as a shell around the ice cream, forming it to cover the ice cream ball entirely. Return to the freezer for another 10 minutes.
