How to make it

  • Butter a 9” springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  • In a large saucepan, combine Guinness and butter; place over medium-low heat until butter melts, then remove from heat.
  • Add cocoa and sugar; whisk to blend.
  • In a small bowl, combine sour cream, eggs and vanilla; mix well.
  • Add sour cream mixture to Guinness mixture.
  • Add flour and baking soda, and whisk again until smooth. Pour into buttered pan, and bake at 350 degrees until risen and firm, 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Place pan on a wire rack and cool completely in pan.
  • Prepare the frosting by mixing powdered sugar with the softened cream cheese and extract; blend until smooth.
  • Add heavy cream, and mix until smooth.
  • Remove cake from the pan and place on a platter or cake stand. Frost the top of cake only, so that it resembles a frothy pint of Guinness.

    I am baking this right away. I bet I can get hubby to stop by the store on the way home and buy the Guinness because that is all I am missing. YUM!
