Chocolate Stout Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting


A few things that have recently blown my mind:

1.  The amount of money someone needs, on their actual person, to buy a house.  It’s… a lot of dollas.  YIKES.

2.  The kid who played Jimmy Woods in The Wizard is the SAME KID who played Les in Newsies AND Billy Heywood in Little Big League.  THIS GUY’S CAREER THOUGH!

3. The correct way to say it is “Daylight Saving Time.”  “Daylight Savings” isn’t a thing.  WHO KNEW??

4. This cake.  THE CAKE, MY GOD, THE CAKE.


Let’s talk about number four.

THIS CAKE.  I think it’s my best one yet.  (And as someone who’s made their fare share of chocolate cakes over the years, that is saying something.)

I made it for you to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, which is in a week.  I’m not particularly keen on St. Patty’s, but any excuse to lick cream cheese frosting from the beaters is fine by me.  Hooray for St. Patrick!


The dark stout in the batter is a dream – it really brings out the chocolate flavor and helps create a sturdy, moist crumb.  And the chocolate cream cheese frosting?  Smooth and dense and oh so luscious.  It’s the perfect balance of deep chocolate flavor and bright, light tang.  It’s like heaven on an offset spatula.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!  (Yes, past tense did.  It was a huge cake and now it’s definitely gone because we finished it.)

Still, it’s nice to know that even if we are low on dollas, we’re absolutely RICH with cake.
