Dark Chocolate Guinness Donuts

  • 125 ml Guinness beer 1/2 cup
  • 125 g butter 1/2 cup
  • 50 g cup cocoa powder 1/3 cup
  • 200 g caster/superfine sugar ¾ cup
  • 70 ml sour cream 1/3 cup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 125 g plain flour 1 cup
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda/baking soda

Baileys Irish Cream glaze

  • 3 tbsp cream cheese room temperature
  • ¼ cup icing sugar
  • 1-2 tsp Baileys Irish Cream to taste


  • Chocolate sprinkles


Dark Chocolate Guinness Donuts

  • Preheat oven to 160°C and grease your donut pan with flavourless oil OR turn on your donut maker (you won't need any oil if you use the latter).
  • Melt the butter into the Guinness in a saucepan over low heat.
  • Whisk in the cocoa and sugar and take the saucepan off the heat.
  • Beat the sour cream with the eggs and vanilla in a separate bowl until combined, than add to the beer mixture.
  • Whisk in the flour and bicarb until combined.
  • Transfer mixture to a jug. Pour the mixture into the donut pans until each is approximately 3/4 full.
  • If using a donut pan, bake in the oven for around 10 minutes until they spring back when pressed. If using a mini donut maker, bake for 2-3 minutes.
  • Allow donuts to cool completely before decorating.

Baileys Irish Cream glaze

  • Stir cream cheese and icing sugar together until mixed, and then add Baileys slowly until you have a thick glaze.
  • Dip the top of the donuts into the Baileys glaze, sprinkle over chocolate sprinkles and place on a cooling tray to set.
