Beer and Chocolate
Who says you can’t have it all?
Seriously, this makes for absolutely kickass chocolate cake.

Last night I made the most delightfully light, fluffy and moist chocolate cupcakes ever in preparation for salted caramel cupcakes (which eventually didn’t happen because I forgot to buy cream). This beer lends an incredible flavour to the cake – chocolatey, malty and slightly salty all at once. Beautiful.
The end result was a winner with all my guinea pigs in the office and it’s definitely going into my recipe keeper.
