I want to make milk chocolate cake mix, using the beer instead of the water. Is this doable?
I think so! Look at Arielle Clementine's The Snakebite cake - that uses Guinness. (Or just make her cake)
Why don't you try it and then tell us how it worked out?
Yes. But know that beer is obviously more acidic than water. For every ounces of acidic ingredient, add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to neutralize the acids.
do you think the addition of the baking soda to the already bubbly beer would result in too much air incorporated into the cake? just wanted your thoughts
Sorry to be so long responding, Matt Sloan. Loooong day at work. No. You'll be fine. I make a chocolate cake made with Stout, and the outcome is divine.
