Beer and Cake?

Oh yes! I did it!
I made a delicious moist stout cupcake. I haven't posted or baked in about a week and I have just been so sad. BUT, I have been food blogging like crazy and watching old episodes of Cupcake Wars and got some good ideas. I wanted something sweet that my dad would like so, he pulled out an oatmeal stout out of the fridge and told me to make something with it!

1/4 cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt (I always use a bit more)
1 bottle of beer (your choice, I used oatmeal but Guinness is recommended)
1 stick butter melted
1 table spoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl  mix the beer, melted butter, vanilla, and add one egg at a time. After it is all mixed together, add the dry ingredients to the wet ones little at a time. 
put them in cake papers, and pop them in the oven!
I used mini cake things so it didn't take as long to bake
Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. If you use mini's bake for 12 minutes and keep checking until they are baked all the way.

Same chocolate as used below

These little cakes are simple, fun, and any guy would LOVE them. They turned out so moist and tasty and the oatmeal stout put a good coffee/chocolate flavor. Hope you enjoy!
