Absolutely no connection to this board, except that after hearing about a chocolate cake recipe with beer in chat yesterday, (that was it wasn't it?) it was decided a recipe thread was a must.

PostSubject: Chocolate Guiness Cake   Mon Jul 23, 2012 3:57 pm

Okay this is the recipe that started it. It calls for Guiness but any stout will work; I used a chocolate stout once that was wonderful. That said, I usually use Guiness. The cake is very moist and rich -- everyone I know who's had it loves it. I got the recipe off a food blog several years ago that linked to it, so I don't know it's origin.

Please note that these are American measurements. I have a vague memory from when I lived in Italy 30 years ago that American and British cups are different (8 oz v. 10 oz maybe?) -- so double-check.

CAKE

1 C Guiness Stout
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter (non butter works as well)
3/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder
2 C granulated sugar
3/4 C sour cream or plain yogurt
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 C all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit; butter & line a 9" springform pan.

Pour Guiness into a large saucepan, add butter and heat over low heat until melted. Remove from heat. Whisk in cocoa & sugar. In small bowl, beat sour cream with eggs & vanilla extract then pour into the liquid. Whisk in flour & baking soda. Pour cake batter into prepared pan & bake 45 minutes to 1 hour (check at 45 minutes for doneness).

Let cool completely in pan before removing. When cold transfer to platter.

ICING

8 oz. cream cheese
1 C confectioners' sugar (powdered sugar)
1/2 C heavy cream

Place cream cheese and sugar in bowl. Mix with electric mixer until smooth. Add cream and beat until a spreadable consistency.

Ice the top of the cake only. The idea is to resemble the froth on a glass of Guiness (the cake is really too low to look like a glass of Guiness but the first time I made it we cut it into cubes that we placed in small (toy) mugs then frosted and they did look more like mugs of Guiness.

Obviously missed this in chat but can vouch for Guinness cake - made one for hubby's birthday. Actually, anything with Guinness in is yummy - especially a pint glass!!!
