Just saw this recipe on Just A Pinch and cannot wait to get back to Texas to make it. Randy loves cakes without frosting and this one sounds like a cake that will be a hit with him.
1 c guinnes draft beer
3/4 cup sour cream
1 stick unsalted butter (you can add up to 2 Tables more if you like, “I like”)
1 tables vanilla
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 cups all purpose flour
3 cups powdered sugar
2 1/2 teas baking soda
Preheat oven to 350. Butter and line a 9″ springform pan or a bundt pan.
Pour the beer into a large wide saucepan; add the butter (that you have sliced)and heat until the butter melts. Whisk in the cocoa and sugar.
Beat the sour cream with the eggs and vanilla; pour into the saucepan; whisk in the flour and baking soda.
Pour the cake batter into greased pan and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Leave to cool completely in the pan on a cooling rack.
Place over platter and allow cake to fall onto platter. Sprinkle with about 1/4 cup powdered sugar or leave plain.
