So moist and a pleasure to eat, the “Chocolate Guinness Bundt with Yogurt Glaze,” from Benjamina Ebuehi’s The New Way to Cake, is a perfect cake. Really.

Have you ever baked with Guinness? I don’t believe I have. Combined with the the Dutch-process cocoa that I used, the tastes were distinct.

 

 

I made sure my ingredients were room-temperature, as Ebuehi advises in this cookbook’s forward. This cake assembly was easy to pace, all by hand. Rather than using superfine sugar, I opted for regular white sugar (no problem). Smell the dreamy chocolate as you stir the batter. No lumps.

 

I baked for 45 minutes. Smell that chocolate and Guinness as this bakes.

Ebuehi’s “10-minute release method” was right on. The tangy yogurt glaze was easy. Slice into this cake and see how beautiful it is. A perfect crumb and perfect texture.

And it’s so moist! Can I taste the Guinness? Yes!

Is the cake too sweet? Absolutely not. Enjoy this big winner.
