Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Cake

When life gives you lemons……combine them with beer and bake into a cake that resembles a giant doughnut, or something like that. I can never keep those old-school sayings straight. But these bright pink Rogue bottles have been intriguing me for the last couple of months. They stick out like a sore thumb next to the endless array of brown bottles. My curiosity finally got the best of me; and there I was in line at the grocery store, buying a bright pink bomber bottle of beer. Well, I guess I’ve had stranger days…

Once I got home, I took a swig. And then another, and another. Heeeey this beer is pretty good. Really good actually. It’s a lemony dessert beer, which is brewed to taste just like Voodoo’s Lemon Chiffon Crueller doughnut. I had to cook with it. But what? A giant doughnut cake. That’s what.
