Move over, Shamrock Shakes. Our dessert of choice for this St. Patrick’s Day fuses a traditional Irish brew with crowd-pleasing decadence: Chocolate Stout Cake.

Also recognized as Guinness cake, the chocolate stout cake gets its name from the use of Irish stout beer in its batter. Like other dark ales, Irish stout not only brings flavors of yeast to the dessert, but it often emulates chocolatey overtones that make an excellent addition to chocolate baked goods. Guinness is a popular choice for its noticeable coffee and cocoa flavors, though any of our best stout beers will do the trick.
