CHOCOLATE GUINNESS CAKE
From the recipe box of travel writer Carole Terwilliger Meyers.
Follow her Travels With Carole blog.

The surprising ingredient of Guinness makes this cake extra moist.  And the cook has to do something with the leftover beer.  Using yogurt instead of sour cream drops a few calories.  When you’re in Ireland, you can pick up some more Guinness recipes at the famous Guinness Storehouse.


1 cup Guinness stout or draught
10 Tbl. butter
          Put in large saucepan and heat over medium-low until butter melts.  Turn off heat.

6 Tbl. unsweetened cocoa
2 cups granulated sugar
          Whisk in.

6 Tbl. yogurt (or sour cream)
2 large eggs
1 Tbl. vanilla extract
          Combine in a separate bowl, then whisk into mix.

2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
          Whisk in.  Pour batter into 9-inch spring-form pan buttered with what is left on butter wrapper. 

350 degrees, 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Cool on wire rack.  Remove from pan.  Frost. 

Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
          Beat until smooth.

1 cups powdered sugar
          Add, beating at low speed until just blended.  If neded, add milk 1 Tbl. at a time to thin.
