Cappuccino Muffins

"Coffee is easily one of my favourite 'flavours' (as well as one of my favorite beverages). This is an awesome, coffee-flavoured muffin to enjoy with the second cup of the morning (the first one is always enjoyed on its own)."

    This is a fantastic muffin. It won't beat you over the head with coffee flavor, so if that is what you are after, I assume upping the instant coffee/espresso powder quantities will help. Love the idea of chocolate chips, too, I think that additive matches another cappuccino muffin recipe on this site (plus a coffee-cream cheese spread).<br/><br/>These cooked up so well and I am sure that my actually being disciplined and following the instructions had a lot to do with this (e.g. actually melted the butter slowly so it didn't get HOT, let the oven sufficiently pre-heat, that sort of thing that I'm usually a little loosey-goosey with!)<br/><br/>I want to try this muffin base with lemon and poppy seeds and also with some fresh fruit to see if the batter can stand up to heavier additives (strawberry coconut?). I do use the Mix In Muffin for fresh fruit, and it works great (you can stand a spoon up in the heavy butter/sour cream batter), but I want something that comes together a little easier (and cheaper!!!).

    I made this for Christmas morning and couldn't resist trying one as soon as they came out of the oven! Like the other reviewers below I added 2 tablespoons of espresso powder (and, on request, mini chocolate chips). A definate keeper - will become part of the standard bruch rotation.

    They don't taste a lot coffee. Even if I used 3 big teaspoon of espresso powder. Next time, I'll try like Redsie with 2 tablespoon. Mine were not as dark as her muffins. But I didn't add chocolate chips. The texture is very good. I like it. Thanks Evelyn :) Made for 123 hit wonders.
