    Ceezie's Note:

    Guinness is my favorite beer - I can't wait to try this cake. Be sure to use a dark beer if you don't care for Guinness as a light beer will make the recipe taste different. Recipe Source Relish Mag

    Units: US | Metric

    Drizzling Syrup

    Cake

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To prepare syrup, combine all ingredients in a small, heavy saucepan, whisking until smooth. Heat over medium heat, until sugar dissolves and syrup is smooth.
    2. 2
      To prepare cake, pour stout over currants; cover and soak until plump.
    3. 3
      Drain currants, reserving stout. Add stout to a small saucepan. Whisk in 1/3 cup cocoa and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat; add semisweet chocolate, stirring until chocolate melts. Cool slightly. Stir in buttermilk.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 350°F
    5. 5
      Combine 2 tablespoons cocoa, 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons flour. Coat two 8- or 9-inch square or round cake pans with cooking spray; dust with cocoa mixture.
    6. 6
      Beat butter with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Gradually beat in 1/4 cups sugar until well blended. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in vanilla.
    7. 7
      Combine 2 cups flour with baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with chocolate mixture, stirring until blended. (Batter may look curdled.) Stir in currants.
    8. 8
      Divide batter between pans. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack 10 minutes; invert onto rack.
    9. 9
      Poke tops of cake layers with a skewer or toothpick. Spoon Drizzling Syrup over tops. Place one layer on a platter. Spread warmed jelly over layer on the platter. Chill 30 minutes. Cover jelly with about a quarter of the Bittersweet Icing. Place second layer on top.
    10. 10
      Ice top and sides of the cake with the remaining icing. Press nuts into sides of cake.
