Our Friends at Everybody Loves Cocktails found this cake recipe on  I was originally looking for a good Irish cocktail to feature and could not pass up sharing this one.
Hope you like it as much as I do! 




Ingredients For The Guinness Cake
3 cups flour
1½ cups cocoa powder
2 Tbsp espresso powder
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup vegetable oil
4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup Greek yogurt ( I used Chobani plain non-fat yogurt)
3 tsp vanilla
9 oz of Guinness beer

For The Irish Cream Frosting
4 sticks butter, at room temperature
8 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
¼ cup plus 2 Tbsp Irish Cream (I used Bailey’s)

Preheat oven to 350º. Grease three 8″ cake pans and dust with cocoa powder.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix to combine. Set aside.
In a stand mixer over medium-low speed, mix together the vegetable oil and sugar just until combined. Add eggs, yogurt and vanilla. Mix this too just until combined.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet. Once it is all mixed together, add the beer. Mix for three minutes on medium-high speed.
Divide batter between the three cake pans. Bake in a 350º oven for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Prepare the frosting. In a stand mixer, beat butter until light and fluffy. Add confectioners sugar and Irish cream. Beat until fluffy. This takes a few minutes.
Once the cakes come out of the oven, let them cool on cooling racks for ten minutes. Flip them out and let them completely cool before frosting.
Divide the frosting into three equal amounts. Spread between each layer and cover the top of the cake. Garnish with chocolate curls.
