I admit I pretty much chose this recipe in the fun and spirit of The Super Bowl but man-oh-man, was I in for a surprise. I baked this as cupcakes - they're not just ok, they're excellent, and NOT "considering they have beer in them," but maybe BECAUSE they have beer in them! Maybe the beer is the reason they're so light, fluffy, moist and deliciously spicy. I used Guiness Draught, and even using a heavy, robust beer such as that, it was not apparent or overkill at all. I baked them about 20 minutes, and topped them with Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting, also from this site. It was the perfect combination.
This was just ok. was quite dry. Novelty cake for fathers day maybe?
This is WONDERFUL! I used pumpkin ale and baked it in a bunt pan at 325 for about 40 minutes turning it every 10 minutes. I also put a powdered suger glaze made with orange juice over it. This was a hit at work! I will keep this recipes close by.
this recipe lived up to all its rave reviews! It was so easy to make and I couldn't believe how fluffy and moist it was. I cooked it in nine inch rounds instead of a loaf pan to make a layer cake that was iced with cinnamon butter cream frosting, toasted coconut and chopped walnuts. The brown ale I used added a great flavor as well.
These were nice and fluffy but without frosting, be warned that for a cake these were not sweet at all. However, paired with the "allspice cream cheese frosting" they were quite delicious. Maybe next time I'll add a little white sugar next time. I also doubled the recipe and it made 30 cupcakes baked at 18 minutes.
i fixed this recipe with the "allspice cream cheese frosing" recipe also on this site and it was wonderful. watch the baking time.
I enjoyed this cake...I put it in a bundt pan and cooked it at 325 degrees for forty minutes, as another reviewer suggested. If I were to use a bundt pan again, I would probably increase the recipe by 50% to make a fuller cake. I dusted the cake with powdered sugar and served it warm.
I made these into cupcakes... found that they were very moist and tasted awesome. Even when the recipe was doubled and made in one batch Lots of complements on them. Paired it with a cream cheese icing.
