Chocolate Orange Guiness Teddy Bear Cake

It's my best friends birthday so decided to bake her something special. It's also a good chance to use my new teddy bear silicone cake pan. I've made beer cake before but it was butter and beer cake. This time I decided to make this Chocolate Orange Guiness Stout cake. Comes with a chocolate orange frosting that's yum~



This cake not yet add frosting
Ingredients:
  • half stick of butter (125g) at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 rounded tablespoons cocoa
  • Grated rind of 1 orange (not the small ones ah!)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Guinness stout

  • Frosting
  • 125g softened butter
  • 2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • Grated rind and juice of 1 large orange

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Grease the teddy bear pan (you can use a normal cake pan)
  3. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa into a bowl.
  5. Add orange rind to the creamed butter.
  6. Beat in eggs one at a time including a spoonful of the measured flour mixture with each one.
  7. Beat well between additions.
  8. Gently mix in Guinness and flour 1 tablespoonful at a time.
  9. Gently fold in any remaining flour then blend thoroughly without over beating.
  10. Pour mixture into your cake pan.
  11. Reduce heat to 350 and bake 40 minutes then turn out and cool on a wire rack.
Frosting
