…with a Bailey Irish cream cheese frosting.
Yes. It is beer, chocolate, and Baileys Irish Cream. Combine it together and you get a delicious adult cupcake that makes you thankful for those who are able to combine these ingredients and develop a tasty dessert just for adults.
Last week I took the chance on a cupcake recipe that I found courtesy of http://www.buzzfeed.com.
It was simple to make and delightful.
Recipe from : The Baker Chick
Yield: 12 cupcakes
- 1 cup stout (Guinness)?
- 2 sticks unsalted butter
- ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder? (dutch process is best)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour?
- 2 cups sugar
- 1½ tsp. baking soda?
- ¾ tsp. salt
- 2 large eggs?
- 2/3 cup sour cream
- 1 8 oz package of cream cheese (softened)
- 4 tablespoons of butter (softened)
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 4-8 tablespoons of Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur
To make the cupcakes:
- Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line pans with paper liners. Combine the stout and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the cocoa powder and whisk until mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
- In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt, and whisk together. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sour cream until creamy. Add the stout-butter mixture and mix just to combine. Mix in the dry ingredients slowly whisking until just until incorporated.
- Divide the batter evenly between the cupcake liners, filling them about ¾ full. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 17 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
For Bailey’s Cream Cheese Frosting:
- Combine the cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl and beat until creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar until well mixed. Add in the Bailey’s a tablespoon at a time until the texture is smooth, creamy, and spreadable. Frost as desired. Decorate with cake crumbs or sprinkles.
