If you want another variation of this same cake, but with a touch of chocolate to it - there's two similar recipes.


1 cup of Guinness Draught Beer

1/2 cup + 2 tbps of butter

1/2 cup of cocoa powder (I recommend using Hersey's baking chocolate, or Baker's chocolate powder)

2 cups of sugar (the finer, the better - you can always shift it if you want)

3/4 cup of sour cream

2 eggs

1 tsp of vanilla extract (if you don't want to spend an arm for pure extract, imitation is just fine)

2 cups of all-purpose flour

2 1/2 tsp of baking soda


Frosting Ingredients

8 ounces of cream cheese

1 1/4 cup of powdered sugar

1/2 cup of heavy cream (or double cream if you're in Europe)



Preheat oven to 350
