Chocolate Stout Cake.

This delightfully gooey and chocolaty cake I have made before. It comes from Nigella's FEAST. And I am sure she would not mind me playing around with it. In fact, I think she has said that recipes are meant to played with.
I found Young's Chocolate stout at Dan Murphy's grog shop, and thought this would be as good as Guinness. It is and more so. I also cooked the cake in two tins rather than one as Nigella suggests. Then I made the icing, adding cocoa and sandwiched the two together and put the remaining cheesy/chocolaty icing on the top.
For those of you that don't have Nigella's FEAST, you will find the original recipe here under CHOCOLATE GUINNESS CAKE.
Thank you Nigella.

Hottie that looks wonderful:) Never heard of the beer but I am fascinated! I notice the icing looks a little darker than I remember. Were there any changes there?

Sally said...

Yes Coby, added cocoa to the icing. One can never have too much chocolate!!! Ha ha.

Wow Sally, I didn't think the Choc Guinness Cake could be improved on but I think you just might have done that!!

Looks perfect.
