This Dark Chocolate Stout Cake is made with only a few simple ingredients. It’s rich with flavor, but incredibly light and moist all the same.
Welcome to the first #BundtBakers of 2016! To kick off the celebration we are sharing strange but good – weird flavor combinations.
While chocolate stout cake may be a well known and enjoyed concoction, it’s still an odd combination of flavors and I also wanted an excuse to try one 😉
Our delightful hostess, June of How to Philosophize with Cake is taking the reins this month and pushing our creativity to the limits.
Every month I always find myself at a crossroads. This time I was torn between stout and wine. My mind was blown when I came across my first wine cake because lets face it, a glass of bubbly and a piece of chocolate is just about the best thing since sliced bread.
I ultimately decided on a stout cake for two reasons, one of our lovely bloggers already had the wine and dessert category covered, and mom really wanted to try a stout cake.
I am so pleased I listened (it’s true all you young folks, moms are always right! 😉 )
As I described above, it rich but light, and utterly divine.
I did cheat a little bit and used a dark chocolate cake base, but kicked it up with some espresso powder and stout to give this sweet decadence a bold yet subtle undertone.
Whip one up this weekend and try it for yourself!
