Trixie's Chocolate Stout Cake

I read on the forum about how delicious this “from scratch” Chocolate Stout Cake recipe was, so I made it. It had a really good flavor, but was dry as a bone! I tweaked my normal cake recipe and made my own version of what everybody has deemed to be “THE BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE THEY’VE EVER EATEN!”

Trixie’s Chocolate Stout Cake


  • 1 box chcolate cake mix-I use DH dark chocolate fudge
  • 1 box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1C oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2t vanilla
  • 1C stout beer(Guiness)


  1. Blend eggs until light yellow, and slowly add oil to emulsify. Add pudding mix and vanilla. Sift cake mix and add to egg mixture along with the beer. Mix on low just until everything comes together, stopping to scrape down sides. Mix on medium( I put my KA on 6) and beat for 3 minutes. Bake in prepared pans at 340 degrees until toothpick comes out clean.
