hey how van i save da recepie?
I've made this cake at least half a dozen times. It's a real crowd pleaser. Sometimes people are put off by the idea of the Guinness - I just explain there's only a small amout to add depth of flavour and take the edge off the sickliness of the chocolate.
In my fan oven I bake it at 170 degrees Celsius for 50 mins. If I use the recommended temperature and time, it doesn't cook through & I end up burning it on the outside.
The icing is delicious, but too sloppy. It runs off in hot weather. I've tried doubling the quantity of chocolate, which helps, but I haven't totally sorted it yet.
Made this cake and loved it! Used a brown beer substitute for Guinness and it worked perfectly.
My cooking time was slightly longer than suggested above, and my icing looked a bit runnier than in this picture but all in all delicious indeed. Especially the next day :-)
