1 cup Guinness
250g butter, chopped
275g caster sugar
75g cocoa
⅔ cup Greek yoghurt
2 eggs
275g flour
2½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

60g mascarpone
150g icing sugar, sifted

For the cupcakes

2. Place the Guinness and butter in a large pot over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, whisk in the caster sugar and cocoa. Remove from heat.
3. In a bowl, beat the Greek yoghurt with the eggs. Add to the pot and whisk to combine. Add the flour and bicarb, whisking until the mixture is smooth.
4. Divide the mixture between the muffin trays. Bake for 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
