I made dessert out of beer!! You can use any stout, though, not just Guinness.



Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes

1 cup of stout
2 sticks of butter
3/4 cup of cocoa powder

2 cups flour
1 3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tablespoon baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

2 eggs
Rounded 1/2 cup of cream cheese

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Whisk in the cocoa powder, and add stout. Let the mixture cool.

Blend flour, sugar, baking soda, salt together and blend.

In a large bowl, beat eggs and cream cheese together. (an electric mixer would have made this step much easier!) When blended, add the stout/ chocolate mixture to the eggs about a quarter cup at a time, and blend, continuing this step until the eggs are tempered.
Add the flour mixture and stir until well-mixed.

Fill cupcake liners about 2/3 full. Bake about 13-18 minutes. ( I suspect my old oven runs hotter than most, as most cupcake recipes recommend 350 for 22-25 minutes. Experiment with timing).

Yields approx. 18 cupcakes.

I mixed up a quick buttercream icing, which was good, but not amazing, use your favorite icing recipe.

I posted my comments and a link to the recipe this is adapted from on my blog, here: http://freethoseradicals.blogspot.com/2010/08/chocolate-guinness-cupcakes.html

 Tongue Mmmmm, I think I'm in lust. I am guessing the addition of the Guinness makes them really moist? What does it add to the flavor?

Aside from working as a leavening agent, it adds some complexity and depth to the chocolate flavor. It's subtle, but I liked it.

Thanks for reading!
