Guinness Cake
Ingredients
  • 1 cup beer (stout or porter, guinness)
  • 10 tbsps unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 11/2 cups superfine sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 21/2 tsps baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cream cheese frosting
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 8 or 9-inch springform pan with butter and line the bottom with a round of parchment paper.
  2. In a large saucepan place the beer and butter. Cook over medium-high heat until the butter has melted. Add the cocoa powder and sugars and whisk together. Take off heat and allow to come to room temperature.
  3. In another bowl beat together the sour cream, eggs, and vanilla extract until very, very well combined. Add to the butter-beer mixture and whisk together.
  4. In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the beer-butter mixture and whisk together until it just comes together. Pour into the prepared pan and give the pan a few short drops onto the countertop to shake the air pockets in the batter to the surface and out of the cake. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack. Run a knife around the edge to separate the cake from the pan and pop the ring off the springform.
  5. Spread frosting on the cooled cake and serve.
