If I were to mention cooking with Stout you would probably immediately think of a heart beef stew or perhaps a chili. Well how about doughnuts?
When I first saw a recipe for Stout Chocolate doughnuts I was intrigued. Once I examined the recipe it made sense and I couldn’t wait to try it.
It’s a simple recipe and if you are one who keeps Stouts in the fridge, chances are that you already have all of the ingredients necessary for these little gems. You will need a doughnut pan as these are baked doughnuts. A nice non-stick doughnut pan will set you back $10-15. Once you try these your pan will get a workout as you be making these tasty treats on a regular basis.
Ingredients for Stout & Chocolate Doughnuts
- 1 cup flour
- ⅓ cup cocoa powder
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ cup Dry Stout (like Guinness)
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup sugar
- ⅓ cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 oz of Irish Cream
- a bit of water if necessary
Preheat the oven to 325F. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl mix all of the wet ingredients. Now stir the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined. Prep the doughnut pan with nonstick spray and then fill each cavity about 3/4 full. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove the baked doughnuts to a wire rack and drizzle over the glaze with a spoon. You know the rest.
