These were such delicious cupcakes! I frosted them with the frosting suggested by Jo March, which really goes well with the cake. Thanks for posting this recipe!
My dad, who doesn't even like the SMELL of coffee ate two of these cupcakes right off. I didn't have frosting or instant coffee on hand so I tweaked a simple boiled frosting recipe to suit the cupcake. 5 tbsp flour, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee. Cook till very thick. Cool completely. Beat together 1 cup butter, 1 cup sugar, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Add flour mixture and beat until very flufffy- 5 or more minutes. Frost cupcakes. Best combination you've ever tasted!!
A very nice cupcake with a different twist. Only change was to make my own frosting with butter, conf. sugar and espresso powder. I'm VERY glad they only make 12, cause I'd eat them all.
Very nice Cupcakes! This recipe produces a very light and fluffy cupcake. The spices are perfectly balanced. Subtle, not overpowering. And I didn't have any prepared frosting so I just made my own using confectioners sugar with a little butter, softened, and the remaining ingredients the recipe states to add to the frosting. Oh YUM! I think the frosting is wounderful. I can't start my day without my coffee and these cupcakes wen't with my morning coffee perfectly! Fantastic reicipe! Thanks OZ!!
