Guinness Chocolate Cupcakes Cover

It is almost St. Patrick’s Day and even though I am not a beer drinker I do like to make a couple of recipes using Guinness Beer! Today I made these fantastic Guinness Chocolate Cupcakes which has the wonderful flavor of Guinness Beer. They were super easy to make and only took 25-minutes to bake – plus they were moist and packed with flavor. The Guinness Beer and baking cocoa combines nicely. Right now my Guinness Beef Stew is in its final stages for dinner and I will post that recipe in a day or two. I purchase a large bottle of Guinness beer so there is enough for a couple of recipes and a glass left over in case my husband or I want to indulge. I love the Irish label on Guinness beer with the Harp and other details! Today was the St. Patrick’s Day parade; however it is about 10 degree F – only the die hards will show up for the parade! I think St. Patrick’s Day is still a bit too early in the year for where I live. Another month or two would be nice. What is everyone’s plans for St. Patrick’s Day? Any special foods or outings?

Guinness Chocolate Cupcakes with Guinness Beer

Dry Ingredients
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup baking cocoa
2 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp baking soda

Wet Ingredients
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup Guinness beer
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup sour cream

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl add the melted butter, Guinness, and vanilla. Whisk in the eggs one at a time and then the sour cream. Slowly whisk in the dry ingredients. Line your cupcake pan with liners – this recipe will make about 24-cupcakes. Fill each cupcake about a third of the way.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 25 minutes. Cool and frost with your favorite icing.
