Chocolate Stout Cupcakes

27 Apr

I made these for my lovely friend Brett’s Birthday. They were a hit.

The recipe it only for about 6 cupcakes. It was more of a lack of ingredients at the time, but it worked out. We didn’t stuff our faces silly as a result.

You’ll Need:

For the Cupcakes:

  • 3/4 cup of flour
  • 3 T butter
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 6 T sugar
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/3 cup of stout beer

THE {Chocolate Stout Ginache} SAUCE :

  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 3-4 T stout beer
  • 1 T brown Sugar

For the  Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 4T butter, softened
  • 6 T cup cream cheese
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350* F
  2. In a bowl, mix the cupcake batter. Soften butter by throwing it in the microwave for a bit, add beer, sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix well.
  3. Add dry ingredients, mix well.
  4. Finally, divvy up batter into 6 cupcake liners.
  5. Bake for about 20-30 minutes. As they are baking, make your ganache that will go inside the cupcake.
  6. This part is complicated… put the incredients for the ganache in a small bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds, and then mix them:
  7. When the cupcakes are ready, remove from over and poke holes in them, like such:
  8. With a funnel or a very steady hand, pour the ganache into the wholes of the cupcakes.
  9. Then, whip up the ingredients for the cream cheese frosting in a hand mixer. After the cupcakes have cooled, remove them from the baking pan. I put my frosting in a plastic bag, cut a tip from one end, and dressed the cupcakes with a twist. Followed by a small sprinkling of cocoa powder. Enjoy!
