Guinness Chocolate Cake

Thank you Arthur Guinness!



1 Cup Guinness Stout

2 Cups Sugar

½ Cup Butter

2 Tablespoons Butter

½ Cup Cocoa

1 Cup Sour Cream

2 Large Eggs

2 Tablespoons Vanilla Extract

2 Cups Unbleached Flour

2 ½ Teaspoons Baking Soda


½ Cup Heavy Cream

8 Ounces Cream Cheese

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1 ¼ Cups Powdered Sugar

Preheat oven to 350° F.  You will need a 9 inch cake pan.  Grease and line with parchment paper.  In a medium sized saucepan pour the Guinness and add ½ cup of butter.  On medium-low heat until the butter is melted.  Remove and whisk in the cocoa and sugar.  Set aside.  In medium sized bowl, beat the eggs, vanilla and sour cream until it is combined.  Next add the sour cream mixture to the Guinness mixture in the saucepan.  Finally, beat in the flour and baking soda.  Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake 50 to 60 minutes or until done (toothpick comes out clean).  When done remove from oven and cool completely (in the pan) on a wire rack.  Remove from pan and frost.  Serves 8

Frosting: Beat the cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar together until creamy.  Slowly add the heavy cream and beat until well combined.  The frosting should be spreadable at this point.
