Recipe Ingredients for Guinness Cake with Whiskey Sour Icing

12 oz sugar
4 large eggs
3 oz Cocoa, Dry Powder, Unsweetened
1 2/3 cup of Guinness
8 oz cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
8 oz powdered sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons whiskey

Recipe Directions for Guinness Cake with Whiskey Sour Icing

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F. Butter a 9 x 9 inch / 25 cm square cake pan, line the bottom with parchment paper, and butter and flour the insides of the pan.

  2. Cream together the sugar and butter. (The best way to do this really is with your hands.) Add the eggs and the cocoa powder, mixing well. Add the stout a little at a time (it will foam up quite a bit). Blend well.

  3. Add the sifted flour and the baking powder and baking soda. Mix well. Pour into the pan no more than 2/3rds full. (If you have a smaller pan, put the extra batter into small cake pans, and put in the oven with about 15 minutes to go in the baking.)

  4. Bake for about an hour, until a skewer stuck in the cake about 3 cm / 1 inch from the edge comes out clean. Let cool before putting on the icing.

  5. Mix the lemon juice and the whiskey in the icing sugar - a small whisk is the most usefuil implement for this. If necessary, slowly add a bit of water to the icing, a drop at a time, until you have a thick, smooth paste. Spread this on top of the cake, and let set before cutting it up, into as many or few squares as you feel like.

  6. (Personally, I made two cakes. This is rich, so small servings are fine.)
