Guinness Stout is the secret ingredient in this intense chocolate cake.


Nothing frames sweetness so perfectly as bitterness. Think dark, toasty, rich and bitter, and you might arrive at chocolate. But this also describes Guinness Stout, the dark, bitter ale served at room temperature throughout the United Kingdom.

Our Guinness Stout Chocolate Layer Cake, elaborate and intense, combines those ingredients for a thrillingly chocolatey, rich and moist dessert. Tiny, sweet-tart currants, another of Ireland’s prized ingredients, also find their way into the cake. And for another flavor boost, currant jelly forms part of the filling.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with this fabulous cake. It will delight chocolate lovers of all nationalities.
