I found this on I'm not sure where I can find coffee extract or vanilla paste. I don't recall ever seeing them at my local market. Hmm...

This is a good recipe. The cakes are a little dry more like coffee cake. I used the scraped inside of one vanilla bean for the vanilla paste in the frosting and two tbsp of brewed espresso for the coffee extract. i liked the frosting even more than the muffins.
