Coffee Maple Walnut Muffins (New Zealand)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Debbie R.

This comes from "Jo Sealard's New Zealand Country Cooking.". I haven't made it yet. I think instant coffee powder must be something different from the instant coffee we use with hot water to make the beverage because she says nothing about heating up the milk first. US instant coffee granules wouldn't dissolve w/o heating the milk. Therefore, anyone making this needs to find the powder itself or heat the milk somewhat and then let it cool back down so that it doesn't cook other ingredients (I would think).

These muffins came out nicely and were easy to make, but I felt they were lacking in taste. The coffee & maple tastes weren't very pronounced...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve instant coffee powder in milk. Stir all ingredients together in a large bowl, just lightly mixing to combine. Mixture should be runny and pourable. Spoon into deep non-stick muffin tins. Bake in a hot oven (375 F.) for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
