Bibliocook.com - White Chocolate and Imperial Stout Tiramisu

Coffee, stout and white chocolate – what’s not to like?

St Patrick’s Day doesn’t have to be all about drinking beer – you can always use it in the kitchen!

Now I’m not necessarily saying to use all the beer in baking, but when you’re picking up a few decent Irish microbrews for the day in question, make sure you have enough to make a cake or two. Perhaps even some ice pops if the weather stays good. Just don’t let the kids get their hands on them!
