Chocolate Guinness Cake

Chocolate Guinness Cake

Have your cake (and beer) and eat it too.

I’ve never thought I would say this but, hallelujah, I need this! I mean, I love chocolate (as proven by this blog). I enjoy me a good glass of Guinness (even a car bomb if I’m feeling foggy). But a Guinness and chocolate cake? It never occurred to me.  Now I’m no chef or anything, but I’ve been one to toy around with things that you’d think wouldn’t go together. Rice, hot dogs and soy. Eggs with taco sauce and sour cream. Hot dogs with ranch, cheese and pickles. 

But a Guinness cake? That alone would have me wanting to try it out.
A Guinness and chocolate mixed cake? Why it’s like those chocolate candies with alcohol in the middle, but in fluffy cake size. But unlike them, you can eat this cake fresh and warm out of the oven. You can even frost it with a delicious chocolate middle and or with some cream cheese. Painting the cream over top of the cake mimics the foam you see atop a stout of Guinness. 
 
Thing is, I can see issues arising from me trying to make this cake:
 
  • Drinking up all the Guinness
  • Licking all the melted chocolate out of the bowl
  • Eating the cake before anyone realizes I made it
 
OK, I wouldn’t do all these things but the idea would indeed cross my mind.
 
Going by the listed recipe for it, it seems to be a rather easy-to-do recipe as well. Just need a large baking pan.
