St Albans Premier Cupcake Company creator, Lucy Clark, joins us in the studio today with a fantastic St Patrick's Day recipe...Guinness Cake!
This scrumptious recipe includes all the usual basic cake ingredients such as self raising flour, caster sugar and eggs, but with added unusual ingredients for a cake - Guinness and sour cream. The combination of Guinness and Cocoa Powder is wonderful. Lucy recommends using at least 70% cocoa powder and for the topping, full fat cream cheese. This isn't a cake for those watching their waistlines.
The recipe works well for cup cakes too - just add some shamrock sprinkles!
