Welcome to part 2 of my St. Patty’s Day Bake-fest. I don’t think you can actually get drunk from eating these cupcakes. Or at least you’d have to eat so many that you’d probably get sick from a sugar overload before an alcohol overload. But, for those who are not fond of the taste of beer, this is a great way to still participate in the consumption of that iconic Irish brew on St. Patrick’s Day.
I got the original recipe from this website and followed the recipe and instructions pretty closely:
12 oz. Guinness Stout
1/2 cup milk (I actually used almond milk instead of whole milk)
1/2 cup oil (I used canola)
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
2.5 cups all purpose flour
1/5 tsp. baking soda
8 oz cream cheese (softened in the microwave)
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 lb (16 oz) powdered sugar
green food coloring (added until it’s the shade of green you want)
The original recipe says to bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Mine were done in about 21 minutes.
Enjoy! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
