Chocolate Stout Cake with Blueberry Vanilla Chevre Cheese

Chocolate Stout Cake with Blueberry Vanilla Chevre Cheese

This cake I baked for International Woman’s Day, which was observed for the first time in 1909 in the United States following a declaration by the Socialist Party of America.  But the holiday used to be celebrated  ostentatiously, especially in Soviet Union and in the countries of the Eastern Block. When the Iron Curtain felt people didn’t want to celebrate the communist holiday anymore, especially in the way they did it in the past, when  working women was given  a carnation and (you can laugh, but it’s all truth) a pair of pantyhose at their workplace.

Recipe:

In a large mixing bowl, I combined:

2 cups Double Chocolate Stout

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups raw cane sugar

1/3 cup grapeseed oil

3 eggs.

Then I mixed in:

1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour.

Chevre, Stout and Cake Batter

I preheated the oven to 350F. I buttered and floured 13 x 9 x 2 in. oblong pan and I poured the batter.  I topped the batter with the slices of Blueberry Vanilla Chevre (10 oz) and about 1/2 cup of roasted unsalted pistachio pieces.

I baked for 40 minutes.
