This recipe came from the KitchenAid Great Baking and More cook book, my sister in law gave it to at Christmas, thanks Shannon for this recipe. These cupcakes were easy to make and I love the cappuccino flavor both in the cake and in the coffee cream, with a hint of cinnamon in the fudge sauce these are sure to make someones day, they did mine. I baked mine at 350 F for about 14-15 min. in regular cupcake tins not custard cups like the recipe calls for, and I got about 18 cupcakes.
