 Method:

Preheat over to 170 degrees.

Grease and flour your bundt tin

In a pan and using a medium heat, bring the Guinness, butter and cocoa to a light boil, whisk until smooth.
Remove from the heat and leave to cool until it’s just warm.
Beat together the eggs, sour cream and vanilla.
Add the butter/Guinness mixture to the sour cream mixture and beat until just incorporated.
Add the dry ingredients and beat until just combined.
Pour into bundt pan.
Bake for 55-60 minutes or until the cake comes away from the bundt tin.
I removed from the tin straight away.
Cool completely on cooling tray.

Boil for one minute, stirring constantly.
As you remove from the heat, add the vanilla.
Add half of the icing sugar and whisk.
Continue to add the icing sugar a spoon at a time and whisk until it’s the right thickness.
Continue to whisk in powdered sugar by the tablespoon until you reach your desired consistency.
Pour over the cake and sprinkle with sea salt crystals.
