The Cake

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • ¾ Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • ½ TBSP Baking Soda
  • ½ TSP Salt
  • 1 Cup Butter
  • 1 Cup Guinness Stout
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • ¾ Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 TSP Vanilla

Cake Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Spray or grease the bundt pan. Sprinkle some flour in the pan, hold it over a sink, and turn and tilt the pan to distribute the flour evenly. Then invert the pan and tap out the excess flour to prevent a buildup of grease and flour on the finished cake.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the Guinness and butter to a light boil, add the cocoa powder and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.
  5. In another bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together the eggs, sour cream and vanilla.
  6. Add the butter + Guinness mixture to the sour cream mixture and beat until just incorporated.
  7. Add the flour mixture and beat until just combined.
  8. Then using a rubber spatula, lightly fold the batter to make sure there are no pockets of flour.
  9. Pour into bundt pan.
  10. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with only a few crumbs.
  11. Allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes.
  12. Then cool completely on rack before.
  13. Cover in plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight (the cake seems to taste better the next day).
