Desserts, Recipes

St. Patrick’s day is coming up and that means a lot of Irish pride. One think that makes you think of Ireland is their famous Guinness stout!  You can make a lot things with Guinness, but most  don’t consider making a dessert. Here’s a recipe for chocolate, Guinness cupcakes with an Irish cream frosting!

Serves 12 or 24 (depends on the size)
Time required 70 minutes
Difficulty level 3
Cost of ingredients 9 USD

Cupcake Batter

1 cup (250) butter, unsalted
1 cup (250) Guinness stout
2/3 cup (150ml) cocoa powder
¾ cup (175) brown sugar
1 teaspoon (5ml) salt
2 cups (500ml) all-purpose flour
¾ cup (175ml) sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon (15ml) vanilla
1 ¼ teaspoons (6ml) baking soda
2/3 cup (150ml) sour cream


2 cups confectioners’ sugar (powdered sugar, icing sugar)
¼ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons Irish cream (if children will be eating this can be omitted)
1 cup cream cheese
1 tablespoon milk
Sprinkles of your choice

In a sauce pan over medium heat, add butter, Guinness, cocoa, and brown sugar. Whisk often until butter is melted and it’s smooth. Remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool to room temperature.

While that is cooling down, add salt, flour, sugar and baking soda together  in a large bowl again using a whisk so that it’s incorporated evenly.  Next add in the Guinness mix to the dry ingredients and mix well with a hand mixer (about 1 minute). Add in eggs, one at a time and mix well before adding the next. Then add sour cream and beat well until smooth.

Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). Spoon batter into prepared cup cake cups (12 good sized cupcakes or 24 small ones). Bake in oven for 20 – 25 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Place on a cooling rack to allow to cool completely before frosting.

While the cupcakes are baking get the icing ready. In another bowl cream together cream cheese and sugar on low setting. Add in salt Irish cream and milk and beat until smooth. When the cupcakes are cool spread the frosting on top and  sprinkle the sprinkles on top and enjoy!
