Longboat Chocolate Porter Cupcakes

We recently had a birthday in the office and Amber from the Amber Dawn Bakery baked us these FABULOUS, moist and rich Phillips Longboat Chocolate Porter Cupcakes with Whiskey Buttercream Frosting.

They tasted and smelled so spectacular we asked Amber to share her recipe with us, so that you could try them at home. Here is the recipe. Enjoy!


1½ cups sugar

3 cups flour

½ cup cocoa

1 tsp salt

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

¾ cup oil

2 tsp vinegar

1½ tsp vanilla

2 cups Porter (I used Phillips Longboat Chocolate Porter)


Preheat oven to 350 °C. Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Stir to mix (do not over mix). If you have time, pour the porter 15-20 min beforehand so that it has less carbonation as it will be easier to mix.

Scoop into paper lined cupcake tins, filling ¾ full. Bake for 18 min or until inserted wooden pick comes out clean.

Makes approximately 2 ¾ dozen.

Do you want delicious and unique cupcakes that are tailor-made to your special occasion, but you aren’t so into making them on your own?
