Beer and Sauerkraut Cupcakes Recipe

Do not let this crazy ingredient cupcake recipe put you off. It is DELICIOUS!!! While beer cakes are not unusual, the sauerkraut is certainly a bit of an odd ingredient in a cupcake. But, you cannot taste or smell sauerkraut brine in the cupcakes you have cooked in the oven. Once baked, the sauerkraut tastes like candied peel. The frosting is simply divine. Your friends and family will be asking for a second, and third, cupcake!

This is the ultimate in Oktoberfest food – a cupcake that contains both beer and sauerkraut! While you can find many main dish Oktoberfest recipes, an Oktoberfest dessert is more difficult to find. Until now.

Ok, so when my niece gave me this recipe last year, I went on a hunt to learn more about Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder, and why I should use it. Dutch Processed Cocoa is also called alkalized, European style, or Dutched cocoa. There is a lot of information out there about Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder, but this seemed to be the easiest for me to understand:

Dutch-process cocoa powder starts with cocoa beans that have been washed in alkaline solution of potassium carbonate. This wash neutralizes their acidity. So, dutch-process cocoa powder is neutral. Because it is neutral, it does not react with baking soda. It’s often paired with baking powder.

Alkalizing cocoa makes it darker in color, mellow in flavor, and dissolves easily into liquids. Oreo cookies are made from dutched cocoa! Yum.

Dutch process cocoa has a smoother, more mellow flavor that’s often associated with earthy, woodsy notes. There are also heavily Dutched “black” cocoa powders that bring the cocoa powder to an alkaline level of 8. Since Dutch process cocoa isn’t acidic, it doesn’t react with alkaline leaveners like baking soda to produce carbon dioxide. That’s why recipes that use Dutch process cocoa are usually leavened by baking powder, which has a neutral pH.

And yes, there is baking powder as well as baking soda in this recipe.

Chocolate Beer Frosting Recipe

This unique, easy to make chocolate and beer frosting recipe pairs perfectly with this Beer and Sauerkraut Cupcakes Recipe! (Also unique, but wow is it good!)

I think this chocolate beer frosting is comparable to a buttercream frosting for spreading. It is made with butter, but the beer is used for the liquid, and not cream.

You “should” have enough frosting for 24 cupcakes, a 13″x9″ pan cake or brownies, or an 8″ double round cake. The yield is approximately 3 cups. As with all frosting recipes, if you like a thicker layer of frosting on your treat, make more frosting! You do not necessarily need to make a double batch, a batch and a half is usually enough for most frosting lovers. Even me. I eat cake for the frosting! I am not kidding. I cannot tell you how often I will eat all the frosting off of a piece of cake and leave 80% of the cake behind! For me, cake is simply the holder of my frosting.

Apple Cinnamon Croissant Cake Recipe

Apple Cinnamon is the first sign of the cooler nights, brighter colors of Autumn! If you love apple and cinnamon together, this delicious, easy to make “croissant cake” pairs the two perfectly.

Notes:

• If you have a Mandolines use it. The apple slices are set to two (2). It makes all the apple slices the same size. You could also use the slicer on your food processor if you have one (I have not done it, so I cannot tell you the analogous size of the slice). And, if nothing else, the good old fashioned knife and cutting board will work. Just try and make the slices as uniform as possible.

• You do not want any seeds in this, so remove any seeds from the apple slices.

• These apples are not peeled. Peel if you prefer.

• I called this a cake, but “pastry” may have been a better name. Oh well.

• I listed the servings as eight (8). You will have more or less servings depending on how thick you slice the apple cinnamon croissant cake.
