Guinness Fudge Brownies

I’ve told you all before I do not have a sweet tooth. But after this weekend I decided I am definitely going to start baking more.  John and I were put in charge of bringing some of the food for the tailgate this weekend and of course his solution was to get a large Chickfila platter and that was it. Now don’t get me wrong I love chicken nuggets like everyone else but these kind of events are my excuse to cook lots of things that I don’t get to on a regular basis. Normally if we were watching the game at our house I would make my crock pot queso but since I knew we would be outside I went for my sister in law’s black bean, corn, & feta dip, and some chips and salsa.  I also had an itch to bake something sweet so originally I thought I should do something easy like brownies. I did a little bit of research on how to take the average brownie a step further. I looked in our fridge and the first thing I saw was Guinness and I went to work! The Guinness added a creaminess that I did not expect from a beer. Next time the only thing I might try out is adding the extra stout Guinness for a more distinct beer taste. So try these out then enjoy the rest of this Irish brew left from the bottle while waiting for these delightful brownies to come out of the oven!


Note: I recommend cooling for 20 minutes or so at room temperature before slicing into them. And if you can hold off even longer before biting into one, since these brownies are more on the fudge side, I put in my fridge for an hour to harden a little more to make it easier to cut. I suggest using a plastic knife.
P.S. These were a huge hit at the Purdue vs Notre Dame tailgate we went to and even convinced me to start baking some more. Good thing John has a sweet tooth!

Whiskey, Guinness, Baileys OH MY Bundt Cake

Tuesday 23rd of April 2013

[...] I had never even heard of an “Irish Car Bomb” until I met John. Basically it is Whiskey + Beer + Baileys = not a drink for Lauren. Add those ingredients in cake and I will definitely have a couple of pieces. For those of you who don’t know what it is – it’s a shot of Baileys Irish Cream and Irish Whiskey dropped into a pint of Guinness Beer. You have to drink it fast before the milk curdles though – again no thank you! But since I know John and a lot of our guy friends like it I thought well I have all these ingredients so let’s do something with them besides make this drink. But if you feel that is too much alcohol in one treat you can always try my Guinness Fudge Brownies. [...]

[...] cookie station at our wedding instead of a groom’s cake. At first, I planned on making my Guinness Fudge Brownies but then I realized John took the beer with him on his trip. So I looked in my newly cleaned out [...]

No I don't. I think I am going to create one after I finish redesigning the new site.
