My husband's birthday was nearing, so I began my hunt for a delicious masculine cake to make. I searched the internet and discovered that his favorite beer pairs nicely with chocolate. So I present to you... how to make a chocolate Guinness cake with Irish cream frosting! 

You will need the following ingredients for the cake: 

1 cup of Guinness Extra Stout 
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
3/4 cup of unsalted butter
3/4 of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 eggs

You will need the following ingredients for the frosting:

2 cups of unsalted butter - softened 
7 cups of powdered sugar 
5-6 tablespoons of Baileys Irish Cream

You will need the following supplies:

Sauce pan
Whisk
measuring cups
rubber spatula (optional)
Mixing bowl
2 eight inch cake pans
Stand mixer (a hand mixer may also work)






Step 1: Make the chocolate beer sauce

Before you begin making your sauce, preheat your oven to 350 degrees & grease your pans. I used softened butter to grease my pans.

In a sauce pan combine 3/4 cup of butter, cocoa powder, Guinness, and vanilla extract. Over medium heat whisk the ingredients until smooth. Once it has a smooth texture, remove from heat.

made it for my boyfriend's birthday. It was super yummy and very easy recipe to follow. made way less frosting than recipe calls for (made 1.5-2 cups) but it was enough to frost the whole thing and a layer in between :)
<p>Thank You! I'm glad you enjoyed it :) </p>
My wife's birthday is on St Patty's Day. This may need to happen.
What an awesome birthday to have! Make it happen. I'm sure she will love it.
<p>So I DID end up making this for her birthday topped with some green sanding sugar. Great finish to our Corned Beef, potato, carrot dinner - we both loved it!</p>
Im definitely going to try this for valentines day for my husband. Sounds delicious!!
I need this in my life.
看起来好像很好吃
hi!! the cake look like delicious!!! but how is 1 cup?
Just one cup of Guinness (using a measuring cup) is all you need for the recipe... But don't let the rest go to waste... what's left in the bottle is for the chef!
My first impression is yuck! And I do love Guinness, chocolate, and, of course, Irish Creme! But after reading the comments we are going to give this a try. Should be a nice dessert after fish &amp; chips &amp; Guinness.
I had feelings similar to yours, but to my surprise it was delicious! Definitely try it. I doubt you will be disappointed.
I loved drinking stout.... <br> <br>Mostly because it had heaps of FLAVOUR. <br> <br>I am assuming that the core of the cake gets above 83*C - to drive the alcohol out. <br> <br>Divorce him and come cook for me
