My guest today is Clodagh McKenna

Clodagh is a chef, restaurateur, cookbook author and a broadcaster.

Originally from Ireland, she’s been cooking professionally for 20 years. She is the author of 7 cookbooks – her latest one Clodagh’s Suppers came out at the start of this year and is really brilliant.

In Spring 2018 she became the weekly food columnist for the Evening Standard and she has regular slots on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch in the UK, The Today Show and the Rachael Ray show in America plus several more in Canada.

Her most recent TV show, Clodagh's Irish Food Trails gained more than 15 million viewers on PBS in America and has really helped to establish her in America.

I only recently met Clodagh after following her career from afar when I got to go to the most delicious dinner party at her house. She really is the hostess with the mostess – there was dancing between each course and the most delicious food. As it’s Valentines day today – whether you are celebrating that – or galentines - or palentines day – Clodagh has got a delicious menu suggestion for what you should make if you’ve got someone in your life you would like to impress!

Guinness Cake
from Clodagh’s Irish Kitchen by Clodaugh McKenna

This cake can only be described as dark and majestic. The bitterness of the Guinness is balanced by the sugar and the vanilla icing adds a fluffy lightness to balance it perfectly. I make this at my restaurant, Clodagh’s Kitchen, using a locally brewed stout called O’Hara’s, which is similar to Guinness. If you don’t like stout, worry not – you will like this cake! The caramel and coffee flavors make this cake one of the best that I have ever made or eaten… Trust me!

Serves 10

2 1/4 sticks plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups Guinness
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
2 large eggs
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder

For the frosting
7 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup cream cheese (not low fat)

  1. Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Line the bottom of a 12-inch round springform pan with parchment paper.

  2. Make the cake: Heat the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until melted. Stir in the Guinness, then remove from heat and stir in the cocoa.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, and buttermilk, and then slowly mix in the Guinness mixture.

  4. Sift together the flour, baking soda and baking powder into a separate large bowl. Using a handheld electric mixer, slowly mix the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and keep beating until it is all well combined.

  5. Transfer the batter to the prepared cake pan and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes. Test to make sure the cake is cooked by inserting a toothpick into the center of the cake –if if comes out clean, the cake is cooked. Let cool in the pan, then transfer from the pan onto a wire rack.

  6. While the cake is cooling, make the frosting: Using a handheld electric mixer, blend all the ingredients together until light and fluffy.

  7. Place the cooled cake on a plate and generously spread the frosting on top.

This cake will keep for up to 1 week in an airtight container.
