Chocolate Guinness Cake




1 12-oz. bottle Guinness Stout

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted

1 tbsp. vanilla extract

3 large eggs

3/4 cup sour cream

1 1/4 cups cocoa powder

2 1/2 cups sugar

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking soda




Preheat oven to 350F. 

Butter 2-9" cake pans and line with parchment.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the Guinness, melted butter and vanilla. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.  Mix in the sour cream. 

In another large bowl, whisk together the cocoa, sugar, flour and baking soda. 

Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet Guinness mixture until smooth.

Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans.  Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Allow to cool completely before removing from the pans.
