St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout Chocolate Cake

A lot of recipes lately. There is nothing like the mixture of beer and food and drinking a beer with beer made with food. This one popped up on my Facebook feed this morning. This is a recipe closer to home in Montreal. A chocolate cake made with St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout. Probably one of my favourite stouts. Oatmeal Stout is intensely black and creamy with an amazing chocolate and espresso taste. The perfect addition to a chocolate cake.
