I really didn't know what to expect with this cake. Cake- with beer? Believe it or not, it works rather well in this recipe. I was concerned it would taste "beery", but the sugar gives it a really nice taste. It's a nice, light, moist, flavourful cake. I served it with blueberries & fat-free Cool Whip. I can't wait to try it with strawberries. Definitely a YUMMY cake! Made for My 3 Chefs, fall '09.
