Chocolate Guinness Cake

 

Adapted from an American cola cake, this great chocolate cake recipe is easy to make, yet incredibly tasty and moist!

 

Preperation: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 50 minutes plus cooling

 

Ingredients

125g salted butter (9 TBS)
125ml Guinness (1/2 cup plus 1/2 TBS)
125g self-raising flour (3/4 cup plus 2 TBS)
40g cocoa powder (1/4 cup plus 1 TBS)
½ tsp Dr. Oetker Bicarbonate of Soda
125g caster sugar (2/3 cup)
75ml milk (5 TBS)
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp Dr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract
50g Dr. Oetker Fine Cooks’ Dark Chocolate, broken into small pieces (2 ounces)


Preheat the oven to 180°C, 160° Fan, Gas Mark 4. Line a 1kg loaf tin with greaseproof paper. Put the butter and Guinness in a saucepan over a low heat until the butter has melted.
Sift the flour, cocoa powder and Bicarbonate of Soda together in a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, milk, egg, Vanilla Extract, Chocolate pieces and melted butter mixture and mix together well.  

Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes until risen and just firm to touch. A skewer or cocktail stick inserted into the middle of the cake should come out clean.

Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then carefully remove from the tin. It is delicious served warm as a dessert with a chocolate sauce, or eaten cold.

Hints and Tips:

To add something special to your Chocolate Guinness cake, why not give it a cream cheese frosting to make it look like the pale top of the stout?
