Mocha Cupcakes

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Inspired by all the delicious chocolate and coffee creations in blogland lately, I got a hankering the other day to make some Mocha Cupcakes of my own.

I decided to use Meredy's super easy cake recipe that she uses for cakes, cupcakes, bar cakes etc. It's one of those throw together and mix recipes that I have started using all the time as a base for different tasty creations. 

So here is my version of quick and simple Mocha Cupcakes, delicious iced with coffee or chocolate icing.

1 and a half cups of Self Raising Flour
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon of instant coffee dissolved in 2 tablespoons of boiling water (or a double shot of espresso)
1/2 cup of milk
2 tablespoons of cocoa
2 eggs
125g (4 oz) butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract.

Preheat oven to 175°C and grease or line your cupcake tray.

Put all ingredients in a bowl and beat on medium speed for five minutes. That's it.

Spoon batter into prepared cupcake tray, filling them three-quarters full.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, then transfer tins to wire racks to cool completely before removing cupcakes.

Ice with chocolate, coffee or mocha icing and enjoy.
