It ain't easy bein' green and a Chocolate Soda Cake recipe

It ain't easy bein' green.......Happy {early} St. Patrick's Day!

I was trying to think of a fun & easy dessert for St Patrick's day and yes, this will work.

Here is my recipe for Chocolate Soda Cake.  I adapted this recipe from the cookbook "Baked NYC."

Chocolate Soda Cake

Makes 1 Bundt cake, make sure you grease and flour your pan correctly or the cake with stick!
preheat oven to 350 degrees

1 C sour cream
2 eggs
2 C all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

1. in a sauce pan heat together the Guinness or soda, cocoa powder and butter. when butter is melted add sugar and whisk until combined. remove from heat and cool.
2. in a small bowl whisk together the sour cream and eggs. whisk these ingredients into above cooled chocolate mixture
3. in a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, soda soda and salt
4. gently fold in the flour mixture into the cocoa/butter mixture, it will be a bit lumpy just whisk it but don't over mix it
5. pour into your carefully prepared pan. bake for 35-40 minutes, turning halfway through baking time
6. cool and turn over taping to remove from bundt pan
