Guinness Black Velvet Cakes...

Happy St Patrick's Day all! I hope you are all having a day filled with Irish cheer and luck!

Today I am sharing my favorite Irish St Patrick's Day inspired recipes, starting off with desert! It's the proper way round really he he
These little cakes/puddings are so rich and indulgent with plenty of chocolate, Guinness and cream.


100g softened butter
175g dark brown sugar
100g self raising flour
50g ground almonds
5 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp bicarb
150ml Guinness
200ml double cream
25g icing sugar


1. Heat your oven to 160C Fan. Grease and line 6 small oven proof dishes or a large muffin tin.
2. In a bowl mix all your ingredients until smooth.
3. Divide between the 6 dishes and pop into the oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
4. Once cooked leave to cool completely.
5. While the cakes are cooling whip your cream and icing sugar until firm.
6. Top your cakes with the cream and dust with cocoa powder to serve.

Enjoy by themselves or as a desert.
