Why I Love This Recipe

I was going through my organizer of great recipes,and decided to try this beer cake that was very moist and delicious, and not to sweet!

Ingredients You'll Need

For one cake, two 9-inch layers, you will need: 2/3 cup butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 squares, (2 oz.)unsweetened chocolate, melted 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup beer
Filling and Frosting:
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 cup sugar
2 squares (2 oz.) unsweetened chocolate, melted 2 Tbsp.butter


Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat until light. Blend in the chocolate.

Sift flour, soda and salt together. Add to creamed mixture along with the buttermilk. Blend until smooth. Stir in the beer and beat until light.

Butter and flour 2 9-inch round cake pans. Turn batter into pans and smooth the top.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 35 to 40 minutes or until cake tests done. Remove from pans. Cool on wire racks.

While cakes bake prepare filling and frosting. Bring 1/2 cup of the cream and sugar to a boil in a saucepan. Boil 2 minutes.

Spread half the filling mixture on each of the cake rounds as you stack them. Sides of the cake may be left unfrosted, if desired. Cut into wedges to serves.
