Try Alcohol In Recipes

I love using different types of alcoholic beverages in recipes as it gives it just another layer of flavor. If you have never tried beer or liquor in a recipe, I challenge you to try it. When it is cooked, the alcohol will evaporate so only the great flavor is left.

A Great Flavor Combination

For this Chocolate Guinness Bundt Cake recipe, it’s combining two great flavors of chocolate and Guinness, which is a dark stout. Technically stout is a beer, but different in many ways. The first being it’s dark color. And if you ever try it, a much different taste. I’m not really a beer drinker and used to think it all tasted the same. With all of the craft beer breweries, I have learned there is a huge difference and taste.

A Few Hints

This cake freezes well. DO NOT add the drizzle.
After it’s completely cooled, wrap in a couple layers of plastic wrap.
To thaw, let it set on the counter for about two hours.
When it’s at room temperature, add your drizzle topping and serve.
If you don’t want to use Irish cream for the glaze, just substitute pure vanilla.

Another Great Bundt Cake Recipe

Another favorite recipe I have made using local whiskey, is this Whiskey Walnut Bundt Cake. I’m thinking I should try both again, and swapping the stout and whiskey in each. Chocolate and whiskey seem to pair well together too. Well, really chocolate does work with most anything.

    1. Guinness is a dark stout and tastes totally different than what you think of beer. So you might like it. I have another cake I make using Kahlua and strong coffee, so I might try a cup of each. 2 cups of Kahlua might be too much. Let me know if you try it. Another idea would be to make a chocolate drizzle and add a bit of Kahlua to it as well. Maybe we have a new recipe.

  1. This cake look beyond delicious it’s perfection! I like that you added alcohol it makes sense for this type of cake:?
