How to make chocolate Guinness beer cake

How about this treat for any Guinness loving sweet tooth – the chocolate Guinness beer cake recipe.

Guinness is a popular drink all over the world but is totally synonymous with Ireland.

Chocolate Guinness Beer Cake
So much so that chefs across the world like to get creative with the drink and use it in their recipes – and not just for savoury meals.

The YouTube channel Divas Can Cook have given a great example of how the iconic Irish stout can be used to create a delicious dessert.

The chocolate Guinness beer cake is delicious and described in the video description as ‘tall dark and handsome’. Monique (the ‘diva’) adds: “No worries if you don’t like beer, the beer just gives this cake a lil kick!”

On her recipe page she says: “You must serve this cake with vanilla ice cream. Once that ice cream starts to melt into this cake and frosting it’s divine!! Which leads me to believe a vanilla buttercream frosting would probably be delicious as well.”

The diva’s video is easy to follow and the results are delicious – and a perfect dessert for St Patrick’s Day or any special occasion.
