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”)

2 eggs

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.
