This Stout Chocolate Cake is a rich and delicious chocolate cake! The stout makes it perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
I’ve been wanting to make a chocolate cake with stout in it for as long as I can remember. (I’m a big fan of cooking with wine and beer…I love the flavours they add). So when my friend Clare passed along this recipe, I just knew it was going to be good.
Oh this cake. I can’t say enough good things about it. It’s such a fun flavour party in your mouth! I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did.
But I do. Oh do I ever. This cake tastes like chocolate and stout at the same time, and at first I didn’t know what to make of that. But I reminded myself that this wasn’t just a chocolate cake, so it’s not supposed to taste just like chocolate. It’s a chocolate and stout cake. And it works.
SO darn good. And SO perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Serve it up after some hearty Guinness Braised Beef…you have the perfect green day dinner!
