  • In a large bowl, crack egg and whisk; stir in oil, milk, vanilla, and coffee mixture; combine well.
  • In an another small bowl, combine dry ingredients.
  • Gently fold dry ingredients into coffee mixture, just until mixed; do not overbeat.
  • Spoon batter into the 10 paper liners and decorate the top of each muffin with a few chopped almonds, if desired.

    I really wish I had read the other reviews before making these since they really had very little flavour. My husband, who LOVES chocolatey things basically refused to eat one until I spread Nutella on it for flavour. Next time I will amp up the chocolate and coffee significantly.

    easy recipe to follow. this is my first time to make a mocha muffin. but this came out not quite mocha tasting muffin. but it was good. just need a little more taste. i also doubled the coffee and choco ingredient. i also advice others to bake for 20 min or less.

    Great recipe!! My modifications: I mixed in about 1/4 cup chocolate chips and made 6 really large muffins instead of 10, because that's the kind of muffin tin I have. I also baked these at 350 instead of 450 -- that seemed like a typo to me, as all the muffin recipes I have call for 350. Turned out just fine at 350 for 20 minutes in my convection oven. Yummy!! I'll make these again.

    wow - fantastic muffins! i doubled the coffee & the cocoa and added almond extract. i also put 5 chocolate chips on the top of each muffin with the almonds. great recipe lennie!

    We liked these. I was going for a subtle mocha taste so I reduced the coffee by 1/2 tsp. and added a handful of mini chocolate chips. I also added the optional almonds. We thought these had nice flavor but, close to 8 minutes before they were supposed to be done, they had started to burn. (I smelled them and was able to save them, luckily.) I'd bake for a much shorter amount of time than recommended, but these were a nice treat.
