Flourless Chocolate Beer Cake


For the cake:

  • 2 ¼ sticks unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 7 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 5 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup muscovado sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup Guinness or other stout beer
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the whipped cream and topping:

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract




To make the cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F/160°C/Gas Mark 3. Butter the sides and bottom of a 9-in. springform pan and then line the bottom with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a heatproof bowl, add the semisweet and dark chocolate; set over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t allow the bowl touching the water). Stir until the chocolate is smooth and miles, then remove the bowl from the pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, apply the eggs, muscovado sugar, and salt. Set the bowl over the same pan of simmering water and stir until the mixture is warm around 2 minutes.
  • Then, remove the mixing bowl from the pan of a simmering water and using an electric mixer beat on medium speed until tripled in volume, around 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, in a saucepan pour the vanilla and stout beer and bring to boil over a low heat. Remove from the heat and apply in the mixing bowl with egg and sugar mixture; then add the melted chocolate, and beat until combined, around 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in the butter until combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a tester comes out with a few crumbs, around 35 minutes. Let it cool in the pan on a wire rack for 60 minutes, then run a knife around the edge of the pan and remove the ring. Allow cooling

To make the whipped cream and topping:

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract until thick and creamy. Spread on the cake.
  • Microwave the butter and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-sec. intervals; stir until the chocolate melts. Carefully drizzle on the top of the whipped cream frosting. Slice and serve.
