The cake is so beautiful and moist, and it lasts for ages. It has a fairly strong smell of Guinness, which to a none Guinness drinking person may be off putting, but take one bite and you'll surly change your mind, well I certainly did.
300 ml Guinness
1/4 cup cocoa
1 3/4 cups sugar
150ml of sour cream
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
Pre heat the oven to 180°C
Place Guinness, cocoa, and butter into a saucepan and heat on a medium heat until the butter melts.
Place the sugar, eggs and sour cream into a bowl and beat with and electric mixer until combined. Pour the guinness mix into the sour cream and stir until incorporated. Whisk in the flour and soda until combined. Then pour into a lined 20cm round cake tin and bake for 45 minutes or until cooked.
300g of dark chocolate
1/2 cup of thick cream
Place the ingredients into a bowl and place over a saucepan of water, or if you happen to have a double boiler use that, heat until the butter and chocolate melt. Let stand for 5 or 10 minutes.
To decorate cut the cake in half and fill with whipped cream and fruit of your choosing. Sandwich the cakes together then pour over the ganache and top with more fruit.
