Guinness Buttercream Frosting
Ingredients
2 Cup(s) Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
5 Cup(s) Sifted Powder Sugar
1/2 Cup Milk
1 Whole Scraped Vanilla Bean
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
2 Cup(s) Guinness Extra Stout
Steps
In a sauce pan, simmer Guinness on low heat for 10-15 min, until it stout becomes reduced and thicker in consistency. Similar to a syrup. *Tip: keep your eye on the store, so stout does not over cook. Let cool.
In a stand alone mixer, cream your butter for 1 minute
Slowly add the powder sugar in thirds, alternating with a little milk each time till mixture is creamy.
Add scraped vanilla bean and vanilla extract.
Slowly add reduced Guinness a little at a time. Taste test to desired flavor. You may not use all the Guinness reduction.



It is just me or the amount of liquid sees like a LOT!?! Adding 2 1/2 plus 1 Tbsp of liquid to 1 batch of BC is too much!

What I do to my Beer BC is just replace the liquid the recipe calls for with reduced stout. Same amounts. I've also used Sam Adams, it is not as dark but just as good, little lighter in beer flavor.

I also use it with chocolate cake and brush my cake with some more reduced beer.



I have done this recipe before for my husband and sailing crew. I also make the Guinness Chocolate cupcakes that go along with this and they are AMAZING!!! And you can make the frosting to taste so if you don't like the beer flavor (like me) don't add a ton of the reduced stout! Now my husband wants me to add the whole amount. It actually gets down to about a 1/4 of a cup or maybe even less. Just depends!! But this is a great recipe and I have had many people ask for it!!

The Irish Car Bomb chocolate cake recipe, made with Guiness, is one of my favorites and I can hardly wait to try this buttercream with it! My adult boys request the Guiness cake and I'll bet that this will make it even better. Thanks for the recipe!!

Did anyone make this yet? The buttercream, I mean. I did mean to try it but haven't had a cake to do to test it with lately. I have leftover cupcakes and think I will try it in the next day or so.
