Last week was a long week for hubby, my babies, AND me. This week is back to normal….welllllll, as normal as normal can get in my world! My hubby’s birthday was in the middle of that long week. When your birthday starts in the middle of a week, you really have to celebrate it big time when the weekend hits. How is this for BIG TIME???
Even though I had the wonderful opportunity to work as a Pastry Chef at a local cafe here in Charlotte. I still never thought of myself as a cake baker….until now!!! After developing this recipe, loving the silky batter, and celebrating the velvety texture of the cooked cake……I have arrived in the cake baking world officially!!! Now to just work on decorating those gorgeous cakes. BUT let’s take one baby step at a time okay?
Now this baker would not finalize any sweet treat without her favorite Greek yogurt! I finally found the new Coffee Chocolate Chunk Chobani Greek Yogurt Bites. To make this cake even chocolatier, adding chocolate Greek yogurt was a perfect addition!
Someone asked me about my many boozy posts I have been sharing. First there was Rosemary Cheddar Beer Biscuits. Then we enjoyed some Boozy Banana Walnut Muffins. Now let’s devour some Guinness lovin’ cake made with LOTS of love! I think I just love baking, cooking, and well of course drinking booze….who doesn’t though?
Now I know I promised you another St. Patrick’s Day post, but well that just was not going to happen….there is always next year! This recipe had a St. Patrick’s Day love to it, but honestly we just LOVE Guinness all year long. Guinness is actually my favorite beer!!!
We shared the cake with our dear friends, what better way to celebrate a birthday, then with friends!! Everyone enjoyed the cake, shared lovely words about how good it was, and then my friend went for a second slice!!! That sealed the deal, this cake is a winner in our book!!
Velvety cake that is moist, and full of chocolate love!
