chocolate beer cake (adult cake)

chocolate beer cake (adult cake)

I set off to make the perfect Superbowl Sunday Cake. While I have no intention of even watching the Super Bowl, you know I will embrace any excuse to make a cake.

Here is the God’s honest truth:

This cake tasted way too much like beer for me. I dismissed it and vowed to perfect the recipe.


We happened to have Bible study the next night and I offered some to all the men. (there was only one lady there and she is gluten free) They all LOVED it. As in, their plates were spotless afterwards they loved it so much. Wonderful God fearing men were practically licking their plates. I knew I was on to something.
