Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes Sugar and Spice Baking

Recipe (makes 12 cupcakes)

Mixture

  • 65 g unsalted butter
  • 0.75 dl granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2.25 dl plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 0.75 dl whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon strong coffee

Frosting

  • 2 1/3 cups icing/confectioners’ sugar
  • 100 g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk

Muffins:

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C (325 degrees F) Gas 3.

Place 12 paper cases onto a baking sheet.

Stir the sugar and butter until fluffy in a bowl. Add the egg and continue to whisk. Pour  the coffee, cocoa, vanilla sugar, baking powder and flour into the bowl.  Add the milk and continue mixing for a couple more minutes until the mixture is smooth.

Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until two-thirds full.

Bake in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes.

Leave the muffins to cool slightly in the pan before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Frosting:

Beat the icing/confectioners’ sugar, butter and cocoa in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) on medium-slow speed until the mixture comes together and is well mixed.

Turn the mixer down to slow speed. Add the milk to the butter mixture a little at a time. Once all the milk has been incorporated, turn the mixer up to high speed. Beat until the frosting is light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. The longer the frosting is beaten, the fluffier and lighter it becomes.

Cupcakes:

Pipe the frosting on top of the cupcakes.

  1. Lovely Recipe! Beautiful presentation!! Chocolate paired with Coffee is absolutely Delicious! I add 1 cup hot coffee to my darker chocolate cakes to make them extra moist and bring out the flavor of the chocolate. 🙂
