    PumpKIM's Note:

    I needed to bake a special birthday cake and came across a recipe for Chocolate Guinness Cake. Everyone went nuts over it, but I felt it would be better as a layer cake, so I've doubled the recipe. This cake comes out incredibly moist and flavorful! :)

      Fabulous 5 star recipe. I didn't change anything about this recipe other than to make only 1/2 of it. I baked two 6.5in cakes and 6 cupcakes. I frosted them with chocolate cream cheese frosting. Although my hubby is a Guinness fan, I must say I could not taste it ... thank goodness. But, what a chocolate flavour. Thank you.

      This was great. This made a wonderful rich chocolate cake that had just a little bit of Guinness flavor but not too much for those who don't like the taste of beer. I made frosting using some Bailey’s Caramel Irish Cream and green food coloring for St. Patrick's Day.
