I admit I pretty much chose this recipe in the fun and spirit of The Super Bowl but man-oh-man, was I in for a surprise. I baked this as cupcakes - they're not just ok, they're excellent, and NOT "considering they have beer in them," but maybe BECAUSE they have beer in them! Maybe the beer is the reason they're so light, fluffy, moist and deliciously spicy. I used Guiness Draught, and even using a heavy, robust beer such as that, it was not apparent or overkill at all. I baked them about 20 minutes, and topped them with Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting, also from this site. It was the perfect combination.

This is WONDERFUL! I used pumpkin ale and baked it in a bunt pan at 325 for about 40 minutes turning it every 10 minutes. I also put a powdered suger glaze made with orange juice over it. This was a hit at work! I will keep this recipes close by.

this recipe lived up to all its rave reviews! It was so easy to make and I couldn't believe how fluffy and moist it was. I cooked it in nine inch rounds instead of a loaf pan to make a layer cake that was iced with cinnamon butter cream frosting, toasted coconut and chopped walnuts. The brown ale I used added a great flavor as well.
