Guinness Chocolate Cake

Guinness Chocolate Cake

Guinness Chocolate Cake is perfect for any St. Patrick’s day party. This dessert is best served with a pint of stout or porter beer, such as Guinness, so be sure to buy a six pack so you have enough to drink with your slice of cake.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup Guinness or other dark stout
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


Step 1

In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the Guinness over medium heat.

Step 2

Remove from heat, pour into a bowl and whisk in sugar and cocoa. Whisk in the sour cream, eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt just until blended.

Step 3

Pour the batter into a bundt pan that has been buttered or well-sprayed with nonstick spray, and bake for 50-60 minutes, until the top is cracked and springy to the touch.
