It’s difficult to be sad when you are eating a delicious piece of chocolate cake- especially if it’s a piece of chocolate mustache cake with a secret cream cheese center! So, let them eat cake!
Daleen and I made this cake for Marc’s bday braai… We were pretty chuffed with the result. 😄 We had a lekker pool party braai with our friends and everyone enjoyed the cake. I made another one for Marc to take with to work. (although I didn’t cut it into a mustache, it apparently still tasted delicious.)
Chocolate Stout Cake Recipe
For the cake:
This recipe makes one 30cm round cake: (we used two 30cm round cakes for the mustache)
250 grams butter
2 cups castor sugar
1 cup cocoa
250mls sour cream
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
1.5 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
2 cups flour
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius and spray or grease your cake tin.
Heat stout and melt butter together on stove top. Then remove mixture from heat. Add cocoa and castor sugar to this mixture. Whisk sour cream and eggs together and add to mixture. Add vanilla essence, bicarb and flour and mix.
Bake for 40-45 minutes.
For the icing:
1 tub plain cream cheese
1 cup icing sugar
Whisk the cream cheese then add icing sugar and cream. Wait for the cake to cool before icing it.
For the mustache cake Daleen and I put a secret cream cheese icing center and made chocolate butter icing for the rest of the cake.
“Pleasing everyone is impossible, pissing everyone off is a piece of cake!”
