My Favorite Dessert

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

I wish I could take credit for my new favorite dessert recipe but I can't SO, make sure you visit Closet Cooking to check out more recipes as wonderful as this one. (I recommend the beef stroganoff, my entire family loves it!)

Chocolate Stout Cake

Chocolate Stout Cake with Bailey's Cream Cheese Frosting

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup stout (such as Guinness)
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2/3 cup sour cream

1. Melt the butter in a sauce pan, remove from heat and let cool a bit.
2. Mix in the stout and cocoa powder.
3. Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
4. Mix the eggs and sour cream in another large bowl.
5. Mix the stout mixture into the egg mixture.
6. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet.
7. Pour the batter into one or two greased and parchment lined circular cake pan(s).
8. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until a toothpick pushed into the center comes out clean. If you bake it in a single pan then it should take about 40-50 minutes. If you bake it in two cake pans then it should take about 20-30 minutes.

Bailey's Cream Cheese Frosting

4 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
1 cup confectioners sugar
3 tablespoons of Bailey’s Irish cream

1. Mix everything.

Other faves are gooey butter cake and brownies. If you need a really quick fix for a chocolate craving, Mike and I like making s'mores in the oven with the broiler setting.) :-)
