love beer and cooking so we plan to share some of our favorite
recipes. For our opening we made Chocolate Stout Cake. The
full recipe for it is from Bon
Appétit September 2002. Here are just a few short
cuts to making an incredible cake. Enjoy!
Use a box cake mix and substitute beer for the liquid of either
milk or water.
Good combinations include:
Stout and chocolate
Fruit beer and pound cake or chocolate -
Great use for overly sweet beers like Harpoons Raspberry
Pumpkin beer with spice cake
you are making a chocolate cake I still recommend making the
original icing. It is easy although not necessarily quick.
2 cups whipping cream
1 pound bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate,
cream to simmer in heavy medium saucepan. Remove from heat.
Add chopped chocolate and whisk until melted and smooth. Refrigerate
until icing is spreadable, stirring frequently, about 2 hours.
