“"I found myself left with a half-bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I taste the beer. Hmm. The word 'chocolate' drifts into my brain. I did this..." Contributed by the witty Andrew Plotkin.”

Directions

  1. Put the cream cheese and half the chocolate (2 oz) into a bowl. Heat in microwave until soft and mix them to an even consistency.
  2. Add the sugar, and mix well. Add the beer, the flour, and finally the rest of the chocolate chips, while continuing to mix.
  3. Add the baking soda. Mix quickly; the beer will start to trigger the soda immediately.
  4. Pour the batter into a cake pan and bake at 350 F for 35 minutes, or the usual knife-comes-out-clean test.
