[ 2 ] Comments

mocha coffee cupcakesHusband loves his coffee so when I ask him what he wants he always asks for coffee cupcakes. These are his favourites with a bit of a twist to make them a little bit more exciting – coffee flavoured chocolate shaped into little shapes to make them look like coffee beans! I bought the bag I used from Rococo in London but there are several places selling them.

Makes 12 cupcakes of around 53g each

mocha coffee cupcakes mixing in chocolate coffee beansIngredients:
150g unsalted butter at room temperature
150g caster sugar
175g self raising flour
Pinch of salt
3 eggs to room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract (real stuff – not the leftovers from papermaking)
2 tbsp. instant coffee dissolved in 1 tbsp. boiling water (use a little whisk)
100g chocolate coffee beans (not chocolate covered coffee beans) – hold back 12

Preheat the oven to 180C (160C for a fan oven like mine) and line your muffin tin with 12 paper cases

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy

Add the eggs to the butter/sugar mix one at a time, beating the egg then incorporating it into the mix as you go

Add the vanilla to the mix and blend well

Sift the flour carefully into the mix a little at a time and alternate with the coffee a little at a time

Now divide the mix between the cupcake cases. I used around 53g of mix per cup.

Place a single chocolate coffee bean on the top from the 12 you held back to top each cupcake with one now before baking.

Bake in the oven for 15-20minutes until cooked. My fan oven took 18 min to get a nice even bake.
