I tried out the following recipes yesterday and sampled them with my family.
Everyone really liked them both. Try them and tell me how you like them! Enjoy!
1 Cup Guinness Extra Stout
3/4 Cup Olive Oil
6 Tablespoons Hershey’s Cocoa Powder
1 Cup Honey ( If you want it sweeter use 1 1/2 cups )
6 Tablespoons Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
Two 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
Two 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
Set oven to 350 ( 30-40 Minutes ) ( I like to check every 20 minutes on my oven )
Spray pans with Olive Oil spray and lightly flour.
Mix Guinness with the Olive Oil. Add Eggs.
Heat the Honey in microwave till runny and then whisk in the Cocoa Powder, then
add this to the Guinness, oil and egg mixture, add the Greek yogurt and vanilla.
Sift all the flour and dry ingredients in separate bowl.
Add dry to the wet with rubber spatula, mix then pour batter into pans.
I did not make a frosting for this cake. I eat it plain and it turned out pretty good. I used a Cup of Honey and the sweetness is subtle. I might add more honey next time but everyone seemed to like it the way it was with one cup.
2 Teaspoons of Olive Oil
3/4 Cup Ketchup ( I used one that had no HFCS. High Fructose Corn Syrup )
1/2 Cup 100% Apple Juice
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup ( I used the Agave and Maple blend from Trader Joe’s )
3/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1/2 Teaspoon Hot Sauce ( I used Red Devil )
5 Cloves Garlic chopped
1 Small Onion chopped
Saute the Onion and Garlic with the Olive Oil then,
ADD all ingredients to a pan and heat at Medium-Low and simmer sauce uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Carefully pour contents of pan into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
It will last two weeks in your refrigerator. I used it on top of my Turkey burgers as I grilled them last night.
It is a good flavor and aroma! I will make this again! 🙂
