Chocolate and Brown Beer Cupcakes


For cupcakes:

110 g brown beer
120 g butter
150 g all-purpose flour
200 g granulated sugar
30 g cocoa powder
1 levelled teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
80 g Greek strained yogurt

2 tablespoons instant coffee

150 g cream cheese, at room temperature
120 g icing sugar
125 g heavy cream 35% fat


  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. When it melts, remove from heat and add cocoa powder and chocolate.
  • Stir with a hand whisk until all of the ingredients are completely combined. Set aside to cool.
  • Sift the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt into a separate bowl.
  • In a mixer, beat the egg and yogurt for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the butter mixture and beat until the butter is completely absorbed.
  • Remove mixing bowl from mixer.
  • Add the sifted flour mixture and gently fold with a spatula.
  • Line muffin pan with cupcake liners. Fill halfway with mixture.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and let them cool on a wire rack.

For the frosting:
  • Beat the cream cheese, sugar, and yogurt in a mixer with the whisk attachment, until light and fluffy.
  • Slowly add the heavy cream while beating continuously.
  • If you want the frosting to be sweeter, add extra icing sugar.
  • Put frosting in a piping bag and pipe over cupcakes.
  • Sprinkle with some finely chopped chocolate.

Do not fill the muffin pan more than halfway because the mixture rises quite a bit while baking..
