Recipes :: Stout Cupcakes with Bailey's Frosting

Happy {early} St. Patrick's Day!! To celebrate a little bit of the luck of the Irish in the kitchen, we whipped up a batch of boozey inspired cupcakes. With a little bit of beer and splash of Bailey's, this is the perfect St Paddy's Day potluck dessert. These are seriously good.

Full recipe and more pictures after the jump!

Chocolate Stout Cupcakes with Bailey's Frosting
Recipe modified from SkinnyTaste

For the Bailey's frosting:

5.5 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar

4 tsp Bailey's Irish Cream

For the cupcakes:
3/4 cup + 1 tbsp sugar
1 cup flour
7 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg
1/2 cup stout (we used Brau Brothers Moo Joos Oatmeal Milk Stout, but any will do!)
4 oz butter, melted
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tbsp canola oil


Combine all the frosting ingredients in a medium bowl and mix until smooth with an electric mixer. Refrigerate until ready to use. It might seem as though there won't be enough frosting, but trust us - it is!

Frosting Stages

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a cupcake tin with 12 liners or lightly spray liners with oil (to prevent sticking). 
In a large bowl sift together all the dry ingredients; sugar, flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda. In a medium bowl combine the wet ingredients (egg through canola oil) and beat until smooth. With a mixer, slowly add the sifted flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. The mixture will seem a little liquidy, but don't worry - it will bake out nicely :)

Milky Stouty Liquid Goodness

Pour into cupcake liners and bake 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.


We scooped out two big spoonfuls into a different container and added two drops of green food coloring for our little shamrocks. Cut a tiny tip off a ziplock baggie for a quickie piping bag. Frost to your little Irish heart's content and enjoy!

Erin go Braugh!
