This is Nigella's recipe, from Nigella Kitchen.
I've been wanting to bake it for ages but decided to save it for my husbands birthday.
But I forgot, ooops (baked him chocolate quinoa cake instead!).
Anyway I finally tried it and thought it was really good.
Of course Guinness was the star of the show, warmed up in a saucepan with butter, golden syrup, brown sugar, with ground ginger, cinnamon and cloves.
Then simplicity in Nigella style, just whisk in the flour and bi-carb until you have a smooth batter.
Whisk in sour cream and eggs.
Pour your surprisingly runny batter into a prepared lined pan and bake.
The texture was very soft although I think I slightly undercooked it.
But the flavour was the stand out to me, so deep and left lingering tastes to keep you wanting more.
I think it would taste exceptionally good after a couple of days.....
