    sugarpea's Note:

    The beer in this batter makes for a deeply-colored, moist and rich coffee cake. Baked in a Bundt pan and dusted with powdered sugar, it makes a pretty presentation.

      Very Good---Easy --I used cocoa powder to dust my bundt pan--yum. This one is a keeper. Next time I will try chopped dates as someone suggested. Thank You for another. Bill K.

      Really unique and tasty cake. I actually made a half recipe, which I cooked in a 9x5 loaf pan. I was a little worried that the batter was too thin, but it baked up just great. I used a Belgian strong dark ale, which was about 9% alcohol and left the cake with a wonderful flavor and a tiny bit of boozy aroma. I didn't have pecans, so I used half walnuts and half sliced almonds. Very moist, flavorful, dark and lovely as described and laced with raisins and nuts. I think that bikerchick's suggestion of trying this with dates is one I may just have to try next time. Great as-is though.
