Directions

  • 2 In large bowl, beat cake mix, oil, eggs and remaining beer with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally until smooth. Pour into pans.
  • 3 Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4 In large bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla and reserved 2 tablespoons beer with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until frosting is smooth and spreadable.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Any stout beer will work in this recipe. We used Guinness.

Before frosting the cake, place strips of waxed paper on the plate under the first layer. After the cake is frosted, simply pull out the strips, leaving a clean plate.
