Sorry -- donuts and beer...in one sitting...in one tasty dessert?  This could be the best news we've heard all day.

Ok, a variety of beer and donut combinations have crossed our counter over the years but few look as irresistible and enticing as the shot shared by Chef Michelle on our Facebook page.

The good chef has developed a fluffy, cakey donut recipe that includes 3 oz. of amber ale "...for a nice bite."  From Chef Michelle, "India Pale Ale, commonly known as an IPA, is characterized as a sparkling pale ale with a slightly higher level of alcohol and hops than a typical Pale Ale; the hops lend it a distinct bitterness.  SO many people wrote to me after making the Guinness cupcakes, and many also wanted a recipe for an IPA..."

Hold the tins -- she has a Guinness cupcake recipe too?  Check out the recipe for IPA / Amber Ale Donuts on Chef Michelle's Fan Page and don't forget to add your photos to our Facebook page.  Who knows?  They may end up in the Pix Potluck...

Anyone else have a great recipe for beer desserts -- cupcakes, donuts or otherwise?
