Serves 12people
Ingredients
Cake
1
cup Guinness Stout
16
tbsp (2 stick) unsalted butter
3/4
cup unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2
cups granulated sugar
1
vanilla bean, split
2
cups flour (you can use cake or all-purpose)
2
tsp baking soda
1/2
tsp salt
2
large eggs, beaten
3/4
cup sour cream
Frosting
6
oz cream cheese, at room temperature
8
tbsp unsalted butter, cut into pieces, at room temperature
1/2
cup fresh orange juice (from about 2 oranges)
2
vanilla beans, scraped
2
tsp finely grated orange zest
3
cups confectioners' sugar
Directions
Cake
1.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heavily grease bundt pan.
2.
In a medium side pot, melt butter with Guinness over medium heat. Once melted, turn off heat and whisk in cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla bean. Allow to cool while you prepare the next steps.
3.
In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
4.
Add eggs and sour cream to your chocolate mixture.
5.
Add 1/3 of the chocolate liquid mixture to flour mixture and beat on high until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add remaining wet ingredients and beat on low until well combined. Scrape sides and beat until fully combined.
6.
Bake in preheated oven in prepared pan until a toothpick comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
7.
Invert onto a plate. You may need to use a knife to loosen the cake from the sides of the pan before you invert. Enjoy alone or top with blood orange frosting.
Frosting
1.
In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attached, cream together cream cheese and butter until completely smooth.
2.
Add orange juice, vanilla bean, and orange zest. Blend until smooth.
3.
Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, blending until smooth and creamy.
4.
Frosting will have a consistency between a thick buttercream and a glaze.
