Want to impress your friends and revisit Guinness in a gourmet way? Guinness Pudding is for you! It is a creamy preparation made with Guinness, egg yolks, sugar and cream. A real treat that the Irish love to enjoy as a dessert, at snack time, or on the occasion of St. Patrick’s Day!

Easy to make, it can be prepared in Irish homes. But there are also ready-made ones in the shops (Guinness itself sells some!). The final result is tasty, halfway between a Viennese yoghurt and a cake. In short, happiness!

Guinness Pudding Recipe


  • 6 egg yolks
  • 80g powdered sugar
  • 1 can of Guinness
  • 200g of fresh cream
  • 150g pastry chocolate


  • In a bowl, mix the egg yolks and sugar.
  • Meanwhile, heat half the Guinness and 150g of crème fraîche in a saucepan.
  • Stir until it comes to a gentle boil, then turn off the heat.
  • Then add the chocolate and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  • Then add the egg yolk/sugar mixture. Stir continuously to prevent the yolk from cooking.
  • Return to low heat. The mixture should gradually thicken after 10 minutes / 15 minutes maximum.
  • Then place the mixture in glasses or bowls. Wrap them in cling film and store in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • During this time, bring the remaining Guinness to the boil in another saucepan. Reduce the heat for 20 minutes over low heat, stirring regularly.
  • Then leave to cool.
  • In a bowl, mix the remaining crème fraîche, the Guinness syrup and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Beat until a kind of whipped cream is obtained.
  • Just take your bowls out of the fridge and decorate your pudding with whipped cream!
  • Enjoy your meal!
