Expert Tips

Make sure cake has completely cooled before icing.

Sometimes, we need a break. Some people like to go shopping. Others like to pamper themselves at the spa. A few of my friends like to go to yoga and stretch their stress away while others like to lounge in front of the television set and watch mindless programming. I like to bake. I like to bake chocolate cakes, to be exact. The measuring along with the decadent chocolate smell that permeates my entire home is a great stress reliever. I like to incorporate fun ingredients like the flavorful stout beer I included in this recipe and enjoy a rich slice with my husband at my side and a piping hot cup of strong dark coffee. Here’s an ordinary cake that is out of the ordinary. I guarantee your family will love it and will be extremely surprised that the secret ingredient that makes this cake extraordinary are the flavors of a rich dark beer. Enjoy!

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Butter (or spray with non-stick cooking spray) one large 9-inch bundt cake mold. In a medium saucepan, heat stout and butter to a slow simmer until the butter has melted. Add cocoa powder and whisk until ingredients have combined.
  • 3 In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • 4 In a separate large bowl, beat eggs and sour cream until smooth. Add cocoa/stout mixture and continue to beat to combine. Add flour mixture and beat to combine until smooth.
  • 5 Pour mixture in prepared bundt pan and bake for 35 to 45 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • 6 Cool in pan for 30 minutes.
  • 7 For icing: In a medium saucepan, heat cream to simmer. Remove from heat and add chopped chocolate. Whisk until chocolate has melted and consistency is smooth. Refrigerate for 1 hour until icing is spreadable.
