I don’t believe I have a drop of Irish blood anywhere in my heritage, but I will take any excuse to have a lovely slice of cake. This is one of the loveliest, moistest chocolate cakes ever. And it’s not overly sweet and cloying like some can be. I think it’s the guiness. Anyway, we celebrated St Patrick’s day this year by having large slices of this amazing cake from one of my culinary heros, Nigella Lawson. When I discovered her show on the style network around seven or eight years ago, I was hooked. I own most of her cookbooks, and sadly, they are severely battlescarred from tons of use. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. Here’s the link to the recipe: Chocolate Guiness Cake. Enjoy – and have an extra slice for me!
