  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup of Lakewood Temptress Imperial Milk Stout

Directions

  1. To make Temptress chocolate cake, mix all dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except beer. Beat at medium speed until combined.
  3. Use a rubber spatula to stir in Lakewood Brewing Co.'s  Temptress Imperial Milk Stout (batter will be thin).
  4. Split batter between two 9-inch cake pans.
  5. Bake at 350°F for about 20-30 minutes, depending on your oven. (Until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean).
  6. Cool for 10-15 minutes in pans on wire rack. Then remove from layer pans and cool completely.
  7. Generously apply your favorite icing between the layers and on top. Enjoy!
  8. Tip: To make it simple to remove the cake from the pans, butter the bottom of the pans and press a piece of parchment paper cut to fit down on top of the butter. You can also butter the sides of the pan and dust them with flour.
