Guiness dark beer, chocolate and cream cheese cake: a classic recipe, with an Irish air

I don’t like beer, but I loved this recipe. The cake is one of the best I have ever made, very moist and fluffy, and cream cheese is pure vice. It is one of those cakes that is hard to stop eating.

As it is quite forceful, we had a piece left over that I kept in the fridge and the next day, with the flavors settled, it was still spectacular, so I advise you to you prepare it a little in advance and keep it cold.

We start by putting the beer and the chopped butter in a saucepan and, without allowing it to boil, we heat them over medium heat, until the butter melts completely. We remove the saucepan from the heat and reserve it.

In a bowl we sift the cocoa, sugar, flour and bicarbonate. We stir with a spoon until everything is well mixed. In another bowl we put the liquid cream, the eggs and the liquid vanilla and beat them with some manual rods.

We add the contents of the saucepan to the bowl with 140 ml of the cream (the rest is for the coverage) and mix them. Little by little we are incorporating the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring until you get a uniform dough without lumps, quite runny.

We grease a mold and put this mixture in it, baking it in a preheated oven at 180ºC for 50 minutes or until pricking with a toothpick this comes out clean. We take it out and let it cool.

Step by Step

While, we prepare the cream. Starting by whipping the remaining 360 g of cream. Then, we mix the cheese and the sugar with an electric mixer, until we get a smooth cream. We incorporate the cream and mix it with gentle movements until we get a creamy cream that we distribute over the cake once cold.

With what to accompany the beer cake

I prepared this cake as a dessert for the family meal last Sunday, although it can also be eaten for a snack, accompanied, as we are, with a good Irish coffee. I think I will have to repeat it soon because we all loved it. By the way, have you noticed that this recipe imitates a beer with its foam?
