About this recipe: This easy recipe is an adaptation of the classic, but is even easier to make. Don't be alarmed by the Guinness though - it's simply used to develop the texture of the cake by making it extra dense and moist. This cake almost ends up pudding like, and goes down a treat when served with cream or ice cream.
This proves that a bakery quality cake can be made so easily at home! You can make a simple icing by blending 100g of icing sugar with 150ml of double cream and 150g of cream cheese. This sweet but tangy frosting is the perfect topping for the rich and dark cake.
Made this from nigellas recipe which is basically the same, and the whole family loved it! A gorgeous dense, moist cake, have made it time and time again! - 06 Aug 2013
Simple to make..and it's the most chocolatey, rich cake ever! Mine took an hour and 10 mins to cook rather than the 40 minutes. I topped it with a frosting made from 100g butter, 100g icing sugar, 300g philly and a splash of vanilla. - 10 Feb 2013
