[I did it…] Dark chocolate Guinness cake

Finally I decided to give the crazy idea of creating a blog a chance to come true.

The thought is in my mind for several months now but I wasn’t quite sure until I started talking to my friends and family.  They know me like nobody else does therefore their opinion is very important for me. They know as well my weakness for sweet things in life… And of course my love for baking. Now I would like to share this love with you through delicious recipes and some mouth-watering photos.
It’s an adventure for me… But guys: It’s worth a try!

One of the most difficult questions was which recipe should be the first one? The decision was made very spontaneous because if something contains chocolate, alcohol and more chocolate, it can’t be wrong, right? Therefore I share this recipe with you.  By the way this was very appreciated by my 15-years-old brother who was very excited to finally try Guinness beer for the first time in his life.
