Irish Cheer Cupcake

from Helen Annely


(Makes 36 Cupcakes)

2 Cups Flour
3/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter (softened to room temperature)
2 Cups Sugar
2 Extra Large Eggs
1/4 Cup Irish Whiskey
1 Bottle or 12oz of Guinness
1/2 Cup Buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350°F and line cupcake pan with cupcake liners.

In medium mixing bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.  Set bowl aside.  In large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on high until smooth.  Beat in sugar one cup at a time until well blended.  Beat in each egg separately until batter becomes light and fluffy.  Beat in whiskey.  Gently pour in Guinness and fold into batter.  Batter will be very frothy and light.  Mix in half of flour mixture until blended.  Repeat with buttermilk.  Repeat with the rest of the flour mixture.  Beat on low for about 10 to 15 seconds to get batter smooth.  Fill each cupcake liner until about half full.  Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Remove cupcakes from pan and let cool on wire rack.

Frosting:
1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter (softened to room temperature)
3 Cups Powdered Sugar
2 Tbsp Heavy Cream
2 Tbsp Bailey's Irish Cream

Beat butter with an electric mixer on high until smooth.  Beat in powdered sugar one cup at a time (add a Tbsp of the cream if the frosting becomes to stiff) until blended.  Beat in remaining cream and Bailey's on high until whipped and creamy.  

Frost cupcakes and enjoy a St. Patrick's day treat!

Happy St. Patty's Day!
