Gotta say it's pretty good! Couldn't figure out where the capuccino is, so I just added 1tb instant coffee in the milk part and turned out great. Made exactly 12 cupcakes. I didn't have cream cheese so I frosted it with chocolate and butter, and some instant coffee in the frosting too, will surely make these again!

I used 3 fresh eggs from my own chooks, and they certainly went very creamy!! That could account for the fact that I got double the yield! made the icing with "cafe" essence, as I wasnt going to shell out for Baileys, (I would drink it, and I am on a diet :) they ended up looking like little "cuppacinos" and tasted great!

Another review that is long overdue. This recipe jumped out at me too! Good thing as they are really delicious - Loved the frosting - the cream cheese and Baileys makes for an added touch. Made as directed and wouldn't change a thing - they are a great tasting muffin. Thank you mickeydownunder for a muffin I am looking forward to serving to family and friends.
