Chocolate Orange Guinness Cake

I had a busy weekend with a christening and a busy start of the week at work. I therefore was not able to cook/bake these last few days. Friday, however, I made a Chocolate Orange Guinness Cake. Here are the ingredients:

Whisk the butter with the sugar until creamy. Add the salt and orange zest and finally the eggs.

In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder. Then alternating mix one spoon of the flour mix and gulps of the Guinness with the dough.

I also added 100g chopped dark chocolate. Put the dough in a baking tin and bake for 50-55 minutes at 180C.

The ingredients for the frosting need mixing together thoroughly and then can be spread on the cooled down cake.
