  1. Position oven rack in center of oven; preheat to 400°; butter or spray 12 regular-size muffin cups in muffin pan; place muffin pan on baking sheet.
  2. In a big bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, espresso powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Stir in the brown sugar, making sure there are no lumps.
  4. In a large glass measuring cup, whisk the coffee, melted butter, egg, and vanilla until combined.
  5. Pour the liquid mixture over the dry ingredients and, with a whisk, gently but quickly stir to blend; don’t worry about being thorough—a few lumps are better than overmixing the batter.
  6. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups.
  7. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a pick comes out clean.
  8. Transfer pan to a rack and cool for 5 minutes before carefully removing each muffin from its mold.

These have fabulouse coffee flavor! They're not too sweet, so they make a nice breakfast muffin with coffee (of course!). I did substitute ground flax seed in for some of the butter, and it worked out great. I'll definitely make these again.
