  • Summary

    "I am a lifelong chocoholic and have eaten many a piece of chocolate cake," writes Elizabeth Means of Williamsburg, Massachusetts. "Never before, though, have I enjoyed anything as much as the chocolate stout cake at the Barrington Brewery in nearby Great Barrington. If I could get a copy of this recipe, I would be eternally grateful." The dark beer known as stout gives this cake an intense, not-too-sweet flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups stout (such as Guinness)
    • 2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter
    • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably Dutch-process)
    • 4 cups all purpose flour
    • 4 cups sugar
    • 1 tablespoon baking soda
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 1/3 cups sour cream
    • 2 cups whipping cream
    • 1 pound bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped
