Yesterday I had taught 2 cooking classes, ran errands in between, and then had to dash home to prepare an Irish Stew for dinner. I don’t honestly know where they day had gone! Sound like your kind of day? While I was making the stew, I used a “bit” of Guinness for it, but had a cup leftover. Sure, I could have poured myself a glass while cooking but I had a better idea…
I was going to make Irish Car Bomb cake bites, but… after making the cake in a Bundt pan, I thought, let’s just keep life simple. After all, I basically cooked the ENTIRE day with my classes and stew (which takes 2-3 hrs.) So, I grabbed my tub of frosting, melted in the microwave for 30 seconds and poured over the cake. DONE.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
- Devil’s Food Cake Mix
- Chocolate Frosting
Bake the cake according to the direction on the box. Replace the water for the Guinness. I was told this cake cooks better in a Bundt pan, so that’s what I did. Flip cake out of pan onto a cooling rack shortly after out of oven. Let cake cool completely. Take cap and foil off of frosting, and heat up in the microwave for 30 seconds. If you are worried about plastic toxins, put into a microwave safe bowl. (I probably should have, but was lazy.) You won’t need all of this frosting, unless you bake cake in a 9×13 pan. Let chocolate set up. EAT!
