“Another tasty cake recipe giving beer a functional use (other than making people "dysfunctional"/lol). Make the cooked part of the icing after you put the cake in the oven so it has time to cool, or you can also put it in the fridge to cool faster. This cake is also very good without the nuts if you don't like them.”
