Chocolate Stout Mug Cake

I can’t believe St. Patty’s Day has already come and gone! Since the four-leafed festivities fell on a Monday this year (boo), we traded green beer for a Chocolate Stout Mug Cake. Not a bad decision, especially since this boozipe leaved plenty of leftover Guinness to sip — a possibly splash a shot of Bailey’s into ;)

As promised in the Vine posted earlier this week, below you’ll find what might be the most satisfying boozipe to date. Don’t get me wrong, all the recipes posted on TTCG are super-tasty. It’s the short amount of time it takes from the idea of a Guinness Stout Mug Cake to having the dessert in your hand that ups its score (also making it dangerous). In less than ten minutes you can gather all the ingredients, make the dessert and clean-up. How awesome is that! And the timer starts now …

Here’s what you’ll need:
Cooking with Beer| Chocolate Stout Mug Cake Ingredients

4 tablespoons all purpose flour

5 tablespoons white granulated sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg
2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (Ghirardelli is my favorite for both cocoa and chocolate chips)
3 1/2 tablespoons milk
1/8 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 1/2 tablespoons oil
5 1/2 tablespoons Guinness 


Mix all ingredients into a beer mug with a small whisk or fork until batter is smooth.
