I've been on a real dessert kick lately and I've been trying out new things. In celebrating of getting ready for St. Patrick's day I made this delicious Chocolate Guinness CakeI used to date a guy who drank Guinness but to me it is a meal but was a perfect complement to this dessert. Well that and the salted caramel glaze. YUM!

  1. That looks amazing! I don’t normally bake, since I live alone and don’t need to end up eating a whole cake myself. But this recipe makes it hard to not preheat the over!
