Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Butter 8-inch round cake pan. Line with parchment or wax paper. Butter paper.
  2. Bring stout and butter to a simmer in heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add cocoa; whisk until smooth. Cool slightly.
  3. Whisk flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in large bowl to blend; set aside.
  4. Beat egg, yolk and sour cream with electric mixer in another large bowl to blend. Add stout-chocolate mixture to egg mixture, and beat just to combine.
  5. Add flour mixture and beat 30 seconds on slowest speed. Fold batter using rubber spatula until completely combined; pour into prepared pan.
  6. Bake about 50 to 55 minutes, or until tester inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Transfer to rack; cool.
  7. Once it is cool, prepare syrup (can use my recipe of Guinness syrup). Cut a piece of the cake, put in a glass, add some ice cream and drizzle the warm syrup on top. Enjoy!
