Stout Chocolate Cupcakes with Irish Cream FrostingTuesday, February 16, 2016C Riches
Valentines Day's over and we're wasting not time in prepping for St Patrick's Day 'round here!
And I'm feeling super lucky, 'cause I get to create AND taste test, yummy recipes like these Stout Chocolate Cupcake with Irish Cream Frosting!
This is a super easy and delicious recipe, and I'm sharing my cheat frosting technique too.
Lucky YOU! ;)
The stout makes the cupcakes super moist and sticky, and its flavor really comes through superbly in the baked cupcakes. So you kinda need the sugary Irish Cream flavor in the frosting to balance it out.
It really is a match made in Irish heaven!
You end up with a rich cupcake that's not too sickly sweet, which is a huge flavor bonus in my book.
