Guinness Chocolate Cupcakes

Kevin Says They Are The Best He Has Ever Had...


  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup Guinness Stout
  • 3/4 cup dark cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee granules
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups butter softened
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 tbsp Irish Cream Liqueur
  • 1/3 cup butterscotch-caramel sauce
  • Sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350. Line 24 muffin cups.
    In a large bowl mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and 3/4 tsp salt. Set aside.
    Melt 1 cup butter in a saucepan. Remove from heat and add Guinness, cocoa powder, instant coffee, and granulated sugar. Stir until smooth.
    With electric mixer combine brown sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla. Add melted butter mixture and beat on medium until cooled. Beat on low and add eggs one at a time, beating after each additional egg. Bring mixer back to medium speed, alternatively add sour cream and powder mixture - scraping down the sides as needed.
    Pour batter into liners. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Let cool completely.
    While cooling let's make frosting!
    In the electric mixer beat softened butter until creamy. On low speed add in the powdered sugar, liqueur, caramel sauce, and the remaining 1 tsp vanilla. Beat until smooth and fluffy. (This makes a LOT of frosting...)
    Frost the cupcakes once cooled and enjoy!
