William Shatner's Cappuccino Muffins

I love William Shatner and cappuccino; what could be better, hehe. These are on several sites, the goldmine again, where there are bunches of other celebrity recipes. I used instant coffee instead of espresso powder cause where I live that's all there is. It works fine.

These were lovely and I really liked the espresso flavour. I increased the amount of coffee to 3 teaspoons but left the rest as it was. I also really liked the fact that you melt the butter for this recipe as it makes it much faster to make. A delicious coffee muffin.

Loved them. I used regular instant coffee, but I would love to try them with the instant espresso powder next time if I can get it in my area.
