Here’s a simple Chocolate Beer Cake recipe. Now, I actually can’t stomach beer but when it’s baked into a chocolate cake the result is heaven. The texture and flavour were still wonderful, even using a cheap beer brand. I adapted the original recipe to include almond meal, for a fudgy texture and nutty flavour complement to the beer. The cake has an amazing soft crumb that melts away in your mouth. I didn’t even bother with a frosting. To make it fancy you could dust it with icing sugar but it’s great without any toppings.
