Valentine’s Treat – Guinness & Chocolate Cake

We love this rich cake!

 Here’s a sinfully delicious chocolate cake.


  • 200g Cream flour [plain flour]
  • 250g granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 150 ml natural yoghurt or butter milk
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 150 ml of Guinness


  • Preheat oven to 180º C / 350º F / Gas mark 4
  • Line your cake tin with parchment paper [if using a moulded cake tin, use baker’s non stick spray]
  • Sieve all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl
  • Lightly whisk the egg, vanilla & buttermilk [or yoghurt] in a jug
  • Then melt the butter in a saucepan, adding the cocoa and guinness. When it has just melted, stir is until smooth to ensure there are no lumps.
  • Next, mix all the ingredients together.
  • Pour the mix into the prepared tin and back for approximately 45 minutes. It is cooked when a tester [toothpick or thin skewer] comes out clean.
  • Allow the cake to stand for 30 minutes before removing from the tin. Then turn it out to cool on a wire rack.

To serve

Serve with fresh cream, butter cream, chocolate ganache or your choice of sauce. This mixture can also be used to make super cupcakes.
