What happens when you make a beer cake with chocolate? You get chocolate beer bundt cake!
Chocolate and beer go perfectly together, especially if it’s a dark ale. Yummy! We are still usually eating and drinking our way through left over Christmas beer and chocolates until well into the New Year so this cake is perfect for using up any leftovers. Including the half finished pint that Grandpa left in his glass! Well, the result is absolutely amazing as I found out this week when I baked one for the first, second and third time ever! Everyone gets more chocolate (and beer for the adults) than they can shake a stick at.
I know that baking a cake with a high liquid content can be a bit daunting and many people believe you need some special kind of kitchen knowledge to be able to make it work. You just need to remember the simple rule: wet ingredient then dry ingredient then wet ingredient mixing well in between each stage until all the ingredients are gone. Simple!
This cake is very rich and has a fudge kind of texture, it’s moist and quite dense. It’s really delicious. Like a cross between cake and brownies at the same time. Even people who thought it sounded odd, then tried it absolutely loved it so I hope that you do too!
