When I was young, I always had a thought to turn 21 and eat Chocolate Beer Cake because my mother never allowed me to eat this cake and as a kid. And you all know that if someone says no to do anything, the curiosity to do that thing is something beyond the words.

Now you must be thinking What is Beer Cake? It is cake prepared using beer as a secondary ingredient and if you make chocolate beer cake it includes stout and chocolate stout beer and gingerbread cakes. If I talk about India, there is a tribe called the Rabha tribe which uses rice beer to make beer cake.

Do You Know in Brazil and Portugal people call Beer Cake as “Bolo de Cerveja”? Last year, I turned 21 and my mother made this Chocolate Beer Cake for my birthday. The very first experience of eating Chocolate Beer Cake was amazing and I can not explain that experience in words.

I asked my mother about the Chocolate Beer Cake Recipe on that day. Today, I will share the recipe of .this cake with you all. If you love cakes, then you should definitely check out the other cake recipes that I’ve handpicked just for you.

1. Lemon Meringue Cake– The main ingredients which elevate the taste of this cake are lemon curd, lemon Meringue and vanilla cake. This recipe is really simple and this cake leaves a remarkable impact on the tongue of the people who eat it.
