These Guinness Cupcakes with Baileys Frosting Recipe will be your new favorite St. Patrick’s Day dessert. A chocolate cupcake with a bit of Guinness and then topped with some Irish Cream Frosting… it just doesn’t get any better than this. A few years back when I worked in an office, a co-worker brought in a batch of these cupcakes. My first response was “No Way!” I am telling you right now…these cupcakes are like heaven! All kidding aside!
Guinness Cupcakes with Baileys Frosting
The hubby worked in the same office and enjoyed these Guinness Cupcakes just as much as I did. You must remember that Mike is not a cake or cupcake type person. So for him to enjoy a cupcake, you know it must be good. Since St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner we decided to make our own batch of these dreamy cupcakes at home to enjoy.
This recipe is a must for you to serve up to your office or St. Patrick’s Day guests! These will have everyone’s requesting the recipe. They are that good! I will warn you though once you serve them up once you will now be deemed the Guinness Cupcake person, ha ha!
Obviously for this recipe you will need Guinness and Baileys Irish Cream. You will also need sour cream (which totally turns my hubby off but he loves what it does for this recipe), baking cocoa, vanilla, sugar, baking soda, egg and butter.
1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
6 oz Guinness
1/4 cup melted Butter
1/2 tbsp Vanilla
1/4 cup Sour Cream
1/4 cup Butter
2 cup Powdered Sugar
2 tbsp Bailey’s Irish Cream
Preheat oven to 350.
Whisk together cocoa, sugar, flour, baking soda and salt.
In another bowl, combine the Guiness, melted butter and vanilla.
Beat in eggs and sour cream until combined and smooth.
Slowly add dry ingredients into the wet mixture.
Line muffin pan with paper liners.
Fill each about 3/4 full.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
Allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Cream butter until fluffy.
