Chocolate Stout Cake

I forget where I found this recipe, but it's a really good one and very easy to make. The stout gives the cake a lovely depth of flavour and you can use whatever brand you like, including the popular Dublin one!

Prep Time: 10 Mins
Baking Time: 75 - 90 Mins
225g Butter (Softened)
350g Soft Brown Sugar
4 Eggs
115g Cocoa Powder
225g Plain Flour
1Tsp Baking Powder
400ml Stout

Right, so you can start by preheating the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and grease/line a 23cm springform tin. Beat the butter and sugar together until creamy then add the eggs, one at a time. In a separate bowl mix together the cocoa, baking powder and flour. Pour about a quarter of the stout in with the butter/sugar/eggs, mix it together then sift in a quarter of the cocoa/flour and do the same. Repeat until all of the stout and flour has been combined. Pour into the tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 75-90 mins, until set and if it starts to brown too much on top you can cover with some baking paper until it's done. Let it cool in the tin, then remove and eat!
