Ingredients

US|METRIC
  • 1 cup stout (such as Guinness)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup sour cream (full fat is best)
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup Bailey's Irish Cream (the original recipe calls for 2/3 heavy cream and no Bailey's in the filling, but I found it increased the awesome quotient just a little bit)

  • 2 teaspoons Irish whiskey
  • frosting
  • cake
  • 4 cups sugar (confections')
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (at room temperature)
