Chocolate Stout Cupcakes to die for

Posted on | March 16, 2008 | 86 Comments

More cupcake awesomeness happening over here.

I wanted to do something yummy for St. Patrick’s day to bring to work. Corned Beef and Cabbage? Not cubicle friendly by any stretch of the gastroimagination. Beer might help, but is probably not allowed. Sweets are always appreciated. Then I saw this post and knew I had to try stout and chocolate together.

Oh, my.

two chocolate stout cupcakes

Oh my, oh my, oh my.

I used this recipe from Dave Lieberman with Droste chocolate and a Guinness stout. The cake came out so spongy and moist (a tiny bit chewy due to about one minute of over mixing) with perfect little puffy domes.

I didn’t follow his recipe for Cream Cheese Frosting exactly. I prefer it with equal parts butter and cream cheese. It’s an incredibly wet frosting, the butter and cheese creamed until fluffy and then whipping cream added and beat until frothy. Then you add your sugar and vanilla. I used vanilla bean paste and too bloody much cream, so had to use more sugar than I wanted to in order to get it to some kind of spreading consistency. I piped it on with a giant round tip and then dusted them with cocoa.

I’m thinking I’ll just go ahead and put them out at breakfast tomorrow, because otherwise I’ll be eating them all day. I had one tonight after supper and I think I’m in love. The frosting is so soft and creamy, with a mild sour, but sweet vanilla intensity and just the perfect texture to go along with the dense, moist cake that’s almost black. The frosting looks like the foamy head on the top of a glass of Guinness.

    Alright… next time you’re in the mood to make these, let me know. You can make your favorite chocolate stout cupcakes and I’ll make mine (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/107105) and we can go head-to-head to see which stolen recipe tastes best!

    (This will require multiple tastings, of course. YUM.)

    By the way, I made my last batch with Brooklyn Chocolate Stout. YUM.

    I’ll have to try that Brooklyn Chocolate Stout. Didn’t even think of other Stouts. Awesome.

    Several people have stopped by my desk this week to ask if I’ll be making them again anytime soon…I need to get my menu and price list printed up!
