A moist luxurious cupcake made with deep, smooth, rich tasting stout, chocolate and dark sugar. Than topped with a fluffy vanilla and white chocolate frosting.
Saint Patrick’s day is just around the corner and to celebrate I decided to make some very special cupcakes out of the nations most famous alcoholic beverage. Though the makers of various whiskeys and other stouts would probably disagree Guinness is synonymous with Ireland especially Dublin.
For this recipe we won’t be turning it green. Or even making green frosting. No leprechaun’s, shamrocks, or crocks of gold at the end of the rainbow, It’s just Guinness and chocolate all the way.
This might seem like an unlikely culinary pairing but the smooth, rich, and slightly bitter tones of the stout marry really well with the chocolate, dark sugar, and rich butter. The result is a moist luxurious cake with a rich flavor and a colour to match the famous pint.
