Guiness Chocolate Cake

Posted on: June 3, 2010

Last week, I had the itch to bake something and ToyBoy wanted a chocolate cake. So I searched through Nigella Lawson’s website. I always use her website when I want a recipe. I’ve tried several and they always work. Plus point for amateur bakers like me. I’ve tried various baking recipes from different websites and 7 out of 10 of them turn out bad.

The entire mixing of the batter was done in a deep pan on the stove with almost one can of guiness (which I finished off). I must say, guiness is definitely not my favourite drink. But the guiness chocolate cake, turned out VERY moist and fluffy with hardly any hint of guiness in it but also very crumbly.   

This cake may be decorated with cream cheese frosting. But I didn’t bother with it. You can find the recipe here. It was a huge cake (23cm round cake) that took us an entire week to finish. I ended up eating it for breakfast, lunch, tea and supper. ToyBoy only ate it for a few days. That’s why took me so long to finish!! Definitely not craving for another cake after this one.
