There are people who claim that a glass of Guinness® tastes like chocolate - that's why the combination of Guinness® and chocolate works so well. This cake is only for absolute chocolate fans!
This cake went down a treat! I found with the glaze it was tricky when melting the butter, guinness and chocolate all at the same time to make it smooth, but perhaps adding the guinness to the mix after the chocolate and butter is melted might work better. I got great responses from fans of guinness and not-fans alike. My dad is addicted to the icing. - 01 Apr 2012
Super yummy - I used less icing sugar in the frosting, I thought it was sweet enough with about 350 g. And I didn't bother sifting it - don't think that's necessary. It has a banana taste for some reason We had it with vanilla ice cream and it was a bit hit. - 18 Mar 2012
This cake is yummy. The cake isn't very sweet but the icing brings the sweetness in. Loved the dark chocolate. - 11 Mar 2012
