Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes

2 cup Gold Medal Unbleached All Purpose Flour
0.5 cup Cocoa, Dry Powder, Unsweetened, Processed
0.25 tsp Salt, Table
1.5 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 cup Sugars, Granulated
0.5 cup, packed Sugars, Brown
4 oz Unsalted Butter
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 large Egg, Whole
0.5 cup Cream, Sour, Cultured
12 oz Beer

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line with paper cups two 12-count muffin tins.

  2. In a large bowl briefly whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment or with a hand mixer, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

  4. Add one egg and beat until evenly mixed and fluffy, make sure to scrape down the mixer bowl once in a while. Add the second egg and vanilla extract and beat again until light and fluffy.

  5. Add the sour cream and beat in, then with the mixer running, slowly pour in the Guinness. Batter will appear to curdle slightly; that?s normal.

  6. Sift the dry ingredients into the batter and slowly stir the batter until it is evenly mixed and there are no streaks of flour. Make sure to stop the mixer frequently to scrape down the sides and make sure to mix up any flour pockets hidden on the bottom of the bowl.

  7. Divide just under 1/4 C of batter into each muffin cup; you?ll get about 20 ? 24 cupcakes. (1/4 cup of batter per standard-sized muffin cup might overflow, but will produce a nice top to the cupcakes.)

  8. Bake at 350 degrees F on the middle rack for 20 ? 25 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake in the middle of the pan should come out clean. Make sure to rotate the pans halfway through baking. Set on a rack to cool to room temperature before frosting.

  9. For layer cakes: baking 25 ? 30 minutes, rotate the pans around halfway, a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes should come out clean.
