About this recipe: A unique combination of flavours - this chocolate cake is studded with cherries and made with beer for a special something that everyone will be trying to put their finger on. The type of beer you choose will affect the flavour - Guinness® or stout will produce a fuller, more distinct flavour than compared to a light lager, for instance. Enjoy!
This cake is stunning. we used a stout but could see using others. the icing is a treat. Make this cake! - 14 Jun 2012

For some reason, in 3 attempts, I couldn't get the cake to bake. Initially I thought the cherries were too ripe and plump but even using maraschino cherries I had the same problem, I have no idea what I might be doing wrong but the middle of my cake is always like a soft fudge. HELP! - 25 Sep 2014
