Yum Giveaway and Peach Ale Cherries with Chocolate Stout Whipped Mascarpone on Chocolate Pound Cake - Beer Girl Cooks

Giveaway and Peach Ale Cherries with Chocolate Stout Whipped Mascarpone on Chocolate Pound Cake

It’s Wednesday!  Let’s party!




Happy Wednesday, y’all!  What a better way to start your hump day than with a boozy dessert and a giveaway?!?!




Let’s put beer in everything!  We’ve got cherries reduced in R. J. Rockers Son of a Peach and some Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout whipped into the mascarpone.  I confess – Sara Lee helped out with the chocolate pound cake.




Do I know how to party or what?  Well, me and Sara Lee.  Or is that me and my Bobby McGee?




Anyway, it wouldn’t be a party without some swag, right?




There is no special occasion for this giveaway, except who doesn’t like getting free stuff and I love y’all!  So when a great group of blogger friends invited me to participate in a Williams-Sonoma gift card giveaway, I said a big “heck yeah!”  Enter below and best of luck!




Note: This post is not sponsored by R.J. Rockers, Sam Smith, Sara Lee, or Williams-Sonoma – these are just a few of my favorite things.  Not sponsored by Julie Andrews either.


Peach Ale Cherries on Chocolate Pound Cake with Chocolate Stout Whipped Mascapone

Peach Ale Cherries on Chocolate Pound Cake with Chocolate Stout Whipped Mascapone


  • 4 pounds fresh cherries, pitted and stems removed
  • 1 12 ounce bottle peach ale (I used R.J. Rockers Son of a Peach)
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 8.8 ounce container mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons confectioner sugar
  • 6 tablespoons chocolate stout (I used Samuel Smith Organic Chocolate Stout)
  • Prepared chocolate pound cake slices (I used Sara Lee)


  1. Combine peach ale, cherries, and corn starch in a Dutch oven over high heat, bring to a boil, reduce to a heavy simmer
  2. Cook until thick and syrupy - I let them go for about 1 hour
  3. Set aside to cool
  4. In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine mascarpone, honey, heavy cream, and sugar.
  5. Beat on medium high until combined and smooth - 1-2 minutes
  6. Add chocolate stout and whip until combined, scraping down sides when necessary
  7. Arrange chocolate pound cake on a plate, top with cheese mixture, then cherries

Recipe note:  You do not need 4 pounds of cherries (although they cook down significantly).  I like to cook a big pot of fruit compote and freeze it to use in the winter.  Obviously there was a lot of cherry mixture left over, but the rest was enough for 4 servings.
