Decadent Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes

Decadent chocolate cupcakes infused with Guinness and topped with a luscious Irish cream frosting. A must for St. Patrick’s Day, or any day for the beer lover in your life!

Friends, how do you feel about baking with beer? While the idea of a Guinness cupcake really speaks to me around St. Patrick’s Day, there’s no reason not to bake these year-round. Even putting aside the plain fun of baking with Guinness, they are, put simply, among the best chocolate cupcakes I’ve had.

Think rich chocolate flavor, complemented perfectly by the slight bitterness of stout beer and a warm hint of cinnamon. Butter adds more flavor still, while sour cream in the batter ensures each cupcake is moist and light.

And the frosting. Have mercy! Your basic sweet cream cheese frosting gets a lot more interesting when you add a generous glug of Bailey’s Irish cream!
