Guinness Cupcakes with Bailey's Irish Cream Frosting. YUM!

Hey everyone!

I’m back with another delicious cupcake recipe for you to try out! This just might be my favorite cupcake recipe ever. They are actually super simple to make and sooo soo good. The cake part is chocolate Guinness. The beer definitely adds an extra hint of yummy in there. The cake is also vegan, although the frosting is not. I’m sure you could make it vegan but I’m not a vegan so I have never tried. The buttercream is made with Irish Cream liquor, and is dangerously good! I got this recipe from Dulcedo, a great baking blog. Sadly they haven’t updated their site in a really long time =( Here's how you make them:

Guinness Cupcakes with Bailey's Irish Cream Frosting
Makes 12 cupcakes

Recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World
3/4 cup soy milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
1/3 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Guinness
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
1/2 cup Irish Cream
2 boxes confectioners' sugar

To make the cupcakes:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk together the soy milk and the vinegar. Add the Guinness, sugar, oil, and vanilla to the soy milk mixture and beat until foamy. Add the dry ingredients in two batches and beat until well incorporated.

Fill your cupcakes containers of choice 3/4 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top springs back when lightly touched. Transfer to a wire rack and allow cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.

To make the frosting:
Beat the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer until creamy and smooth. Add the Bailey's and half of the confectioner's sugar and beat until smooth. Add the second half of the sugar and beat until smooth.
