Guinness Chocolate Fudge Cake

You will need:
250g butter
200g dark brown sugar
70g good quality cocoa powder
250ml Guinness
2 eggs
140g Greek yoghurt
200g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
70g fudge pieces
75g White chocolate to decorate


This recipe will make 12 muffin sized cakes or one 23 inch cake. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4 or 160C for fan oven. Lightly grease and line a 23 inch cake tin, or a 12 slot muffin tin.
Place the butter, sugar and cocoa powder in a large pan and heat on a low heat until all the butter and sugar has melted, stirring to make sure it all mixes in. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the Guinness. Whisk or stir in the Greek yoghurt to the Guinness mix and then stir the eggs until it is all mixed together. Gently stir in the flour, baking powder and fudge pieces. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin or cake cases and bake in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes for small cakes or 25 – 40 minutes for a large cake. Leave to cool and remove from the tin. To decorate melt the chocolate and drizzle over the cake or cakes. Leave to set before enjoying. Alternatively the cake is delicious served warmed with cream or some Greek yoghurt.
