I love making cupcakes. I used to make cupcakes as a way to pay for college back in the day. A couple years ago, I made a whiskey cupcake and it totally made me fall in love with alcohol infused desserts. It's always nice to have a dessert that the kids can't have! The stout beer cupcakes are a great gift for your dad or your boyfriend. They are great for the ladies too because I love them. These cupcakes are super easy to make and a fun idea for a St. Patrick's Day treat. The cake is so moist and chocolatey and the frosting is perfectly whipped and flavorful!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Prepare your ingredients
  2. In an electric mixer, combine the sugar and butter until fluffy.
  3. Slowly mix in the eggs.
  4. Add unsweetend cocoa powder, salt and vanilla extract.
  5. Mix together the flour and the baking powder. Slowly add it to the batter on low speed.
  6. Slowly add in the stout beer.
  7. The batter should be semi-thick and lump free.
  8. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with cupcake liners. I spray the liners with cooking spray to make sure the cupcakes do not stick to the lining.
  9. Fill each cupcake liner with 1/4 cup of batter.
  10. This recipe makes 24 cupcakes.
  11. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean from the center.
  12. Mix the frosting ingredients together.
  13. Place the frosting in the refrigerator to chill.
  14. Remove the cupcake from the pan and allow them to cool completely before frosting.
  15. Add 2-3 tablespoons of frosting to the cupcakes.
  16. I added a sprinkle of cocoa powder and a clover on top for decorations.
  17. Enjoy!
