Doin' a Nigella....

The only cakes I seem to make these days are birthday cakes or cupcakes so I really stepped out my comfort zone in order to make a 'proper cake' for a recent afternoon tea. I chose Nigella's Chocolate Guinness Cake, from the 'Chocolate Cake Hall of Fame' section of her Feast cookbook.
Instead of Guinness, I subsituted our local brew....Adelaide's own Coopers Stout. I'll attempt to describe the process as Ms Lawson would.
The buttery, beery, chocolatey brew.
Fresh out of the oven. The majestic black stouty cake. Iced with creamy cream cheese icing to resemble the frothy head of a classic pint.Extremely rich.....but force yourself! Yum!
