He was a wise man who invented beer ~ Plato
I'm a beer girl.
Yes yes being a little Asian girl I'm not exactly your stereotypical beer guzzler. Not that I'm a huge drinker mind you. Hardly. Just like your stereotypical little Asian girl, I am a complete lightweight. A pretty cheap date. But give me a cool refreshing beer on a hot summers day and I'm a happy chappy. Give me two and I'll probably be under the table.
Now, there are beers, and then there are BEERS. Guinness, the infamous Irish dry stout, falls in the latter category. Big, bolshy, in your face beer. A meal in a glass. Liquid bread.
Being such a lightweight and thus naturally preferring lighter wheat beers and largers, stout has never been my cup of...beer. And on top of that, beer and chocolate is not exactly a combination that screams delicious. But when my Mum fell in love with this Chocolate Guinness Cake I knew I had to try and recreate it for her.
