We had a birthday in the house today, and the birthday boy requested Nigella Lawson's Chocolate Guinness Cake with Cream cheese icing.
So easy to make it felt almost sinful, and as it sat on the counter Hubs debated whether he wanted to try any. We convinced him to have a tiny piece and as turned my back to slice some more, I could hear exclamations through mouthfuls of cake.
"OH MY GOD this is the BEST cake EVER."
And it is. Deep, dark, heavy, and delicious, this cake is amazing. The cream cheese icing seemed over the top at first, but in the end was so light and fluffy that I could've licked the bowl clean. I am not even a cake fan but this cake is by far the best I've ever tasted. You must try it.
Now I have 2/3 of a cake in my fridge. Anyone want a piece?
Or how about the recipe?
