Why I Love This Recipe

Stout beer adds a rich and complex flavor to the cupcakes, making them a perfect post-Super Bowl treat.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup stout beer
1 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2/3 cup Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Football-shaped candy decorations (for garnish)
White frosting for piping (for garnish)


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a cupcake pan with paper liners.

In a saucepan, heat the stout beer and butter over medium heat until the butter is melted. Remove from heat and whisk in the cocoa powder until smooth. Allow the mixture to cool.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl, beat the eggs, Greek yogurt, and vanilla extract until well combined.

Gradually add the stout mixture to the egg mixture, beating until just combined.

Add the flour mixture in batches, mixing until smooth.

Pour the batter into the cupcake liners, filling each about 3/4 full.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.

To frost the cupcakes like footballs, use white frosting to pipe laces and stripes on the top of each cupcake. Place football-shaped candy decorations on top for a fun and sporty finish.

Pairs Well With

These cupcakes pair well with a cold glass of milk or a bold cup of coffee to enhance the deep flavors.
