Guinness Stout Brownies

We took a little vacation over Spring Break, so I’m just now getting around to posting something for St. Patrick’s Day — Brownies made with Guinness Stout. Along with a slight flavor of beer, the brownies have a really interesting dense, chocolaty, non-greasy texture. You can really taste the chocolate, and the beer just enhances […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! If you’re still looking for a green dessert, here’s a suggestion.

Scratch Irish Cream Cake

Irish Cream Cake

Yesterday’s Irish Cream Cake was fun, but I wanted to create a scratch version and this is what I came up. Todd and I agreed it was better than the cake mix version, and even thought it’s scratch, it’s just as easy. The ingredients list seems long, but it’s mostly basic pantry items and the cake itself is a “stir-and-bake” variation on Black Magic Cake.

Irish Cream Cake

This weekend I was organizing my St. Patrick’s Day recipes and came across the cake again. The post had no picture — just a recipe for the cake, and I felt a little sorry for it. “Poor recipe.

Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

The recipe was inspired by some pound cake cupcakes I tried in a New York bakery. Like those cupcakes, these are heavier than your usual cupcake, but tight crumbed and definitely more like cake than muffins (provided you use the cake flour). Cream cheese in the batter makes keeps them moist and works well with the Irish Cream.
