Chris’s Chocolate Guinness Cake

Happy St Patrick’s Day 2024 Everyone! A pint of plain is your only man 

This is my take on a Guinness Cake folks and I created the recipe to fit the 20cm x 30cm pan like all the other cakes. It’s delicious, decadent,moist and rich with a subtle taste of the black stuff but nothing overpowering.

Have a go. You owe it to yourself!
