Chocolate Stout Cake Recipe

Chocolate Stout Cake Recipe
About two weeks ago my younger brother, Jared sent me a text me stating he had pink eye. I’m quite the germophobe, so I was immediately curious how he contracted it; he had no clue. Once I found out about his funky eye, I decided that I would make him a big, decadent, chocolate, layer cake…with chocolate stout. Jared often complains that he doesn’t get enough “play” on My Baking Addiction, so this Chocolate Stout Cake post is devoted to him and his unfortunate encounter with pink eye. His cake also kicks off an entire week of recipes featuring Stout beer as the star ingredient. Although I have expressed my dislike for alcohol in general, I am always compelled to purchase alcoholic libations that pique my interest for use in recipes. After posting the photo of this Chocolate Stout Cake on the My Baking Addiction Facebook page, it affectionately became known as the Pink Eye Cake, which is all kinds of hilarious and repulsive at the same time. If you enjoyed this recipe, you may like... Related:  Cakes

Sallys Baking Addiction Banana Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake Super-moist banana crumb cake layered with cinnamon, brown sugar, and chocolate chip streusel. Not one piece of this lip-smacking cake will be leftover! Today’s recipe was completely unplanned. Ok, let me rewind. For dessert, Kerry made this with strawberries on top. Kevin didn’t tell me about brunch with his family until 4pm the day before. Because, I couldn’t possibly go empty handed. After the crumb cake received rave reviews from his family, I knew I had to share the recipe with you. This coffee cake/crumb cake recipe actually comes from my best friend Amy. Wanna see proof? Amy and her family enjoy this banana chocolate chip crumb cake every year on Christmas. First thing’s first. The crumb cake is left fabulously moist from all three moistening-agents: mashed ripe bananas, yogurt, and creamed butter. The streusel! The streusel is heavy on the chocolate chips and heavy on the cinnamon. So many melty chocolate chips in every bite. The cake’s texture isn’t dense like banana bread.

Take a bite and taste the bursts of bright flavors! What on earth is a lusciously fruit-filled recipe like this doing on my kitchen table in February? While I know the east coast hasn’t been hit nearly as hard as the midwest, we’ve had more snow than we know what to do with. Share Video I love the snow, but someone pass me a fork. I made this cake for my girlfriends, Megan and Erin. On top of all of that, I brought over a few slices of this cake and a fresh batch of oatmeal cookies. Megan’s husband said the cake reminded him of a super moist sponge cake. Making a tall layer cake shouldn’t be overwhelming. Make sure you use fresh lemons. * How to choose lemons at the store?

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes Recipe From decadent Peanut Butter Trifles to Amber’s Peanut Butter Snickeroos, I filled up the week with pure peanut butter goodness, so I knew I had to wrap up the week with something extra special. The idea for Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes has been filed away in my recipe notebook for months just waiting to debut in spectacular style. I have forever been a fan of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, especially when fluffy white bread is involved. I know, I know, this is certainly not the most nutritious bread choice, but hey, this is My Baking Addiction, so I am giving the white bread some love to go along with this week’s peanut butter love. I get on food kicks a lot, meaning I’ll eat the same thing over and over again until I simply can’t stand the thought of it, but somehow, I never tire of PB&J sandwiches and I often eat them for dinner when Brian works late… sometimes I even get fancy and actually toast the bread!

Chocolate Mousse Cake Often simple desserts are better than complicated ones. That is not to say that the flavors are simple. What I mean is that the dessert itself is made of only a few very well constructed components. This mousse cake is an example of this. Tender cake fluffy, rich mousse, and a light dusting of powdered sugar are all you need to create something very impressive. Well, maybe a few well placed berries would not go amiss. The mousse should be made first so it can completely set up while the cake bakes and cools. Chocolate Mousse Cake Serves 8 For the mousse: 10 ounces dark (65% or higher) chocolate 2.5 ounces water 5 egg yolks*(See Below) 1 tablespoon coffee liqueur 1 teaspoon vanilla 5 egg whites*(See Below) 2 ounces sugar Pinch cream of tartar Pinch of salt 1 cup cream Begin by preparing the mousse. In a double boiler melt the chocolate with the water until smooth. In a small bowl combine the egg yolks with the liqueur and vanilla. While the mixture chills prepare the cake.
