Featured Recipe: Battery Park Stout Cake

Photo of: Battery Park Stout Cake

We may not be able to enjoy a glass of stout at Battery Park right now, but we love local craft beer so much that we put it in cake! This Stout Cake recipe from Battery Park includes stout beer and takes less than an hour to make. Best served with coffee, or perhaps more craft beer?

Grocery List

List of seasonal produce for the week of November 26

Get your hands on local sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, parsnips, cabbage, and cranberries while shopping at Noggins Corner Farm Market, Masstown Market, Stirling Fruit Farms Ltd., any other of the Farmers’ Markets of Nova Scotia. Find your local stout or dark ale at a local brewery.
