I love a great chocolate cake & one of my favorites is a Guinness Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.
Now, I’m not a beer drinker, but the Guinness really adds something to the cake that gives it a really rich flavor.
I first tried a cake like this at one of my favorite bakeries, Sugar Mama’s in Austin, Texas. Over 9 years ago, I went on a hunt for a similar recipe & I came across this one by Dave Lieberman & it’s been a staple in my kitchen ever since. I actually made these cupcakes for my daughter’s 1st birthday party.
You could definitely turn this cake into a layer cake or even a sheet cake, but the individual cupcakes give you a moist center with a little bit of chewy on the sides & it’s the perfect texture to compliment a think cream cheese frosting.
We’ve decorated these for St. Patrick’s Day, but this cake is a year round staple. It’s an easy recipe, tasty & always a crowd pleaser. I have no doubt you will be Really Into it as well.
