    Sass Smith's Note:

    This is a dark, moist cake that keeps beautifully. It doesn't taste exactly of chocolate or Guinness, but a lovely deep flavor somewhere between the two. I can see the addition of some ginger doing very nicely in this. It comes together in a flash on the stovetop. From Nigella Lawson by way of Kim O'Donnell of the Washington Post.

    cake

    icing

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Butter a 9-inch springform pan and line bottom with parchment paper.
    3. 3
      Pour Guinness into a large saucepan, add butter and heat until melted.
    4. 4
      Whisk in cocoa powder and sugar.
    5. 5
      In a small bowl, beat sour cream with eggs and vanilla and then pour into brown, buttery, beery mixture and finally whisk in flour and baking soda.
    6. 6
      Pour cake batter into greased and line pan and bake for 45 minutes to an hour (Check at 45 minutes for doneness, poking a skewer in center).
    7. 7
      Leave to cool completely in the pan on a cooling rack, as it is quite a damp cake.
    8. 8
      When cake is cold, gently peel off parchment paper and transfer to a platter or cake stand.
    9. 9
      Icing.
    10. 10
      Place cream cheese and confectioners' sugar in a mixing bowl, and whip with an electric beater, until smooth (You may also do this with a food processor).
    11. 11
      Add cream and beat again until you have a spreadable consistency.
    12. 12
      Ice top of cake, starting at middle and fanning out, so that it resembles the frothy top of the famous pint.

      I have been making this cake for years, it is always my husbands birthday cake. The only problem I have is that it always sinks a bit in the middle-my remedy is to whip the icing up nice and firm, pile it on...no one can tell there's a dip in the middle.

      The cake is lovely, but I found the icing came out very runny and simply would not stiffen. I highly recommend the cake part, maybe use a different icing recipe

      I made this cake from Nigella's Feast cookbook and it has got to be the easiest and best cake I have ever made. With the topping, it looks like a pint of Guinness. You must try it!
