Three things:
1. That Guinness cake is destined for great things, namely, the kick-off to my 41st birthday binge.

2.Rushmore is on my eternal top ten, thanks in part to the the two-fisted existential torment personified by Ronnie and Donnie: "Never in my wildest imagination did I ever dream I'd have sons like these."

3.I wish Moister Moister would get back together. That would be so rad.

That is all. Excellent as always, Kels.

1. Thank you Mels! It was fun to make, and you can definitely taste the presence of the Guinness. I found it a little off-putting, but then again I don't drink Guinness. :)

2. Oh. Rushmore is SO in my top ten. And the characters of Ronnie and Donnie are clearly based on actual teenagers I see in my classroom everyday. Having them around for 45 minutes is torture, but actually living with them and knowing that you are responsible for bringing them into the world...what a nightmare that must be. The world needs more Dirk Calloways. ("Fondly, Dirk Calloway")

3. Unfamiliar with M.M.

Moister Moister is my 6:35AM idea of an hilarious wisecrack at the expense of 80's band Mr. Mister. Half a day later? Not so much.

Great recipe. It's on for tomorrow. I think the whole wheat will lend a good dense texture to complement the rich chocolate?
Thanks.

Hands down I would be there with you on the last thing to eat. Add a cup of coffee to it and that would be my last meal!
Your recipe looks amazing. I'm kind of wondering why they didn't have butter instead of the oil? I make this one from Gourmet magazine that is to die for! The frosting on this bad boy has at least two kinds of melted chocolate in it. If you go on epicurious, and punch in Chocolate layer cake with chocolate frosting...it will come up for Gourmet February 2004. I make it every year for my daughter's birthday.

Hi, Kelly. I'm a first-time commenter, but fun fan of your blog and U2 cartoons! I've been considering getting a Nigella Lawson cookbook, and your post put me over the edge about "How to Be a Domestic Goddess." But the customer reviews say the measurements are off. What is your advice? Do you use the UK or US version? Thanks!

Hi Kelly!!

Came upon you thanks to your sister's blog, and I love both your blogs so much!! You guys are great!! Both so positive and full of life and information. Keep it Up!!! LOVE.

Kelly

Libby, I'd definitely get the US version of Domestic Goddess. The measurements are a little on the odd side (obviously converting metric measurements to cups/tablespoons won't always result in nice round numbers). So sometimes when I use it I find myself measuring out 2/3 C + 2 teaspoons of cocoa or whatever, which is kind of a pain but ultimately worth it. Her recipes are fantastic and I adore the way she describes and explains things.

Thanks to all my new readers!
