Recipe from “The New Irish Table” by Margaret M. Johnson. You can usually buy single bottles of stout at markets such as Holiday in Royal Oak or Trader Joe’s, or ask at your favorite beverage store.
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup superfine sugar
- 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- 4 ounces white chocolate, chopped
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup cocoa
- 11/4 cups Guinness stout
- Confectioner’s sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter an 8-by-8-inch square pan. Combine eggs and sugar and beat with electric mixer until light and fluffy. In medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt chocolates and butter, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and beat into egg mixture.
Sift the flour and cocoa together and beat into the chocolate mixture. Whisk in the Guinness.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out almost clean. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack. To serve, dust with confectioner’s sugar and cut into squares. Serves 8.
