It's a single-layered chocolate cake made with a generous portion of Guinness stout or beer in the batter! Paired with the chocolate and sugar, it gives an interesting subtle flavor and moistness to the cake, and many bake it in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Guinness ( /ˈɡɪnɨs/ gin-is) is a popular Irish dry stout that originated in the brewery of Arthur Guinness (1725–1803) at St. James's Gate, Dublin. The thick creamy head is the result of the beer being mixed with nitrogen when being poured, which the topping on this cake is supposed to resemble.
