Chocolate Guinness cake

  • Guinness 200ml
  • butter 250g
  • caster sugar 350g
  • vanilla extract 1tbsp
  • plain flour 300g
  • bicarbonate of soda 3tsp
  • cocoa powder 70g
  • whole milk strained yoghurt 200g
  • eggs 2
  • Topping
  • whole milk strained yoghurt 300g
  • double cream 150ml
  • icing sugar 100g
  • cornflour 2tsp
  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 180°C, and butter and line a 9 inch springform tin.

  • Pour the Guinness into a large wide saucepan, add the butter and heat until melted, at which point you should whisk in the cocoa and sugar.

  • Beat the yoghurt with the eggs and vanilla and then pour into the saucepan and whisk in the flour and bicarb.

  • Pour the cake batter into the greased and lined tin and bake for 45 minutes. Leave to cool completely in the tin on a cooling rack.

  • Once the cake has cooled completely, sit it on a flat platter in preparation for icing. Lightly whip the yoghurt and double cream until smooth, sieve over the icing sugar and cornflour and then beat to combine.

  • Ice the top of the black cake so that it resembles the frothy top of the iconic pint.
