chocolate stout cake
Chocolate Guinness cupcakes with Bailey's Irish Cream icing... I had a version of these for my fall wedding reception- Suffice it to say, they were divine! As foodie blogger Laura notes, she made hers without the whiskey ganache- I agree that they already have a lot going on & the ganache is skippable. Not so skippable... A Bailey's Irish cream on ice as accompaniment!
"I am a lifelong chocoholic and have eaten many a piece of chocolate cake," writes Elizabeth Means of Williamsburg, Massachusetts. "Never before, though, have I enjoyed anything as much as the chocolate stout cake at the Barrington Brewery in nearby Great Barrington. If I could get a copy of this recipe, I would be eternally grateful." The dark beer known as stout gives this cake an intense, not-too-sweet flavor.
