Bolo de Cereveja (Beer Cake)

Serves 10 to 12

2 cups sugar

1 cup butter, softened

4 eggs, separated

1 cup beer (8 ounces

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  1. In a large bowl, using the high speed of an electric mixer or mixing by hand, beat the sugar with the butter, until smooth, about 1 minute.Beat in the egg yolks,, at medium speed, until the ingredients are fluffy and pale yellow, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Pour in the beer, mixing to blend. Add the flour and the baking ppowder and mix thoroughly, about 1 minute.
  3. In a separate bowl,using clean beaters, beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold the beaten whites into the batter. Pour into a lightly greased and floured 10-inch tube pan and bake in the preheated oven until a wooden skewer comes out clean and the cake springs back when lightly pressed with your finger, about 50 minutes. Cool about 5 minutes before removing from the pan.

Light or regular beer works equally well. Use your favorite.
