For the cake:

For the icing:

  • 300 g organic cream cheese

Queen Chocolate Collagen Cake

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Butter and line parchment in a 23 cm / 9 inch springform tin.
  2. Pour the Dark/Porter beer into a large wide saucepan, add the butter–in spoons or slices–and heat until the butter is melted, at which time you should whisk in the cocoa, Reishi, Maca+Cacao and sugar. Beat the sour cream with the eggs and vanilla and then pour into the brown, buttery, beery pan. Whisk in the flour and bicarb.
  3. Pour the cake batter into the greased and lined tin and bake for 45 minutes to one hour. Leave to cool completely in the tin on a cooling rack, as it is quite a damp cake.
  4. Once the cake is cool, sit it on a flat platter or cake stand. Lightly whip the cream cheese until smooth, sift over the finely ground coconut sugar and then beat them together.
    To do this in a processor, put the coconut sugar in first and blitz until it is finely ground before adding the cream cheese.
  5. Add the cream and beat again until it makes a spreadable consistency. Ice the top of the black cake so that it resembles the frothy top of the famous pint.

Enjoy!
