  • Start by combining the dry ingredients in a bowl: 2 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 3/4 cup cocoa, 1 teaspoon baking soda and a pinch of salt. Mix together.

  • Then mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl: 3 beaten eggs, 3/4 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick), 1 tablespoon vanilla, and 1&1/2 cups (12 oz) stout beer. Whisk until smooth. Tip: you want all of your ingredients at room temperature. If everything is cold, the melted butter will set up in clumps when you add it in.

  • Add the dry ingredients in to the wet, a little at a time, thoroughly blending with each addition. Whisk until very smooth. You can use an electric mixer if you like, but the batter is thin enough to easily whisk by hand. In general, cupcake batter is usually about the consistency of a thick milkshake.

  • Grease a muffin pan and fill cups 3/4 full. Pop in the oven at 350 degrees and set the timer for 20 minutes.

  • The cupcakes should have a nice dome. Press on the center of a cupcake and it should spring right back to shape. If it doesn't spring back, they need a little bit more time in the oven.

  • Beat an 8 oz block of cream cheese (room temperature) until smooth. Blend in 1/4 cup of cream (or half-and half, or milk). Now slowly add a box of powdered sugar a little at a time. If the frosting is too thick, add a little more cream. I like the frosting on the thin side, to give a smooth look like the foamy head on a Guinness.
