      Title: Chocolate-orange Guinness Cake
 Categories: Irish, Cakes, Desserts
      Yield: 4 servings
 
----------------------------CAKE---------------------------------
      8 oz Butter, room temperature
      8 oz Soft dark brown sugar
     10 oz Self-raising flour
      1 t  Baking powder
      1 pn Salt
      2 T  Cocoa (rounded T's)
           Grated rind of 1 orange
      4    Eggs
    1/2 c  Guinness

--------------------------ICING--------------------------------
      4 oz Butter
      8 oz Confectioners' sugar
           Orange(juice, grated rind)
 
  Preheat oven to 375F.  Grease 2 8-9-inch cake pans.  Cream the butter
  and sugar until light and fluffy.  Sift the flour, baking powder,
  salt and cocoa into a bowl.  Add the orange rind to the creamed
  butter and beat in the eggs, one at a time, including a spoonful of
  the measured flour mixture with each one, and beating well between
  additions.  Gently mix in the Guinness, a tablespoonful at a time,
  including another spoonful of flour with each addition.  If there's
  any flour left over, fold it in gently to mix;  blend thoroughly
  without over-beating.  Divide the mixture between the tins, smooth
  down, and put the cakes into the center of the preheated oven.
  Reduce the heat to moderate (350F) and bake for 35-40 minutes, or
  until the cakes are springy to the touch and shrinking slightly in
  the pans.  Turn out and cool on a wire rack. . Meanwhile, make the
  icing. Cream the softened butter and icing sugar together thoroughly,
  then blend in the grated orange rind and enough juice to make an
  icing that is soft enough to spread.  When the cakes are cold, use
  half the icing to sandwich them together, and spread the rest on top.
