  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt

CARAMEL & BEER GANACHE

  • 1 cup Beer of your choice 240g

Instructions

CAKE

  • Preheat oven to 350O F. Line a standard (9”) loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Place the beer and butter in a small saucepot. Bring the mixture to a simmer and whisk in the cocoa powder and sugar. Take the mixture off the heat and whisk in the yogurt, followed by the eggs. Last, whisk in the flour and baking soda.
  • Pour the batter into your loaf pan and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until just set in the center.
  • Prepare ganache while the cake is baking:

CARAMEL & BEER GANACHE

  • In a small saucepan over low heat, bring the beer to a simmer. Cook it down to a thick syrup consistency (this will take about 5 minutes over low heat) . Pour this out into a large bowl and add your chocolate. Set aside.
  • Clean your pot and fill it with the sugar, brown sugar, butter, and cream. Bring to a simmer and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Pour this caramel mixture over the chocolate and beer mixture. Stir until the caramel has melted all the chocolate. Cool to spreadable consistency.
  • Spread cooled ganache over cake and serve.
