Chocolate Stout Cake

This is the recipe I used for my chocolate stout birthday cake. It is a moist, versatile dark chocolate cake. The addition of stout gives the cake a slightly pleasant bitter, beery flavor.

Chocolate Stout Cake
4 cups granulated (white) sugar
3 ½ cups all-purpose (plain) flour
1 ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons instant coffee
1 cup buttermilk
3 cups stout beer
1 cup canola oil
4 large eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350◦F and grease four 8-inch round baking pans.
In a large bowl, sift together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and coffee.
Make a well in the center.
In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, beer, oil, eggs, and vanilla;
Add wet ingredients to dry, and beat until well combined. This will form a smooth, thin batter.
Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake 30-35 minutes until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove from pans to a wire rack to cool completely before
