Coffee Cupcakes

It was a great Sunday morning and I woke up early to get my hands on making these Coffee Cupcakes for breakfast. Cupcakes have never been a difficult bake for me but making the buttercream was a challenge and having coffee flavour in it will be even tougher. Though the buttercream was kind of too sweet for me, the final product was satisfying in look and taste! I am now motivated to move on to the next challenge of making other flavors soon.


120g Vegetable oil
225g Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
2 Eggs
2. tbsp instant coffee
3 tsp water
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
225g plain flour

225g butter
3 tbsp instant coffee
3 tsp water
345g icing sugar
2 tbsp milk

Chocolate Balls


1. Preheat oven 180 Deg C. Place cupcake fillers in baking pan.
2. In a large mixing bowl, add in vegetable oil and sugar. Mix well.
3. Add in vanilla and eggs into sugar mixture. Mix till eggs become pale (about 1 min).
4. In a small bowl, add instant coffee and water. Stir until dissolved and add into the large bowl.
5. Add in baking powder, salt and flour and mix till incorporated.
6. Scoop batter into prepared cup fillers and bake for 20 mins or until toothpick comes out clean. Set aside to cool.

Place buttercream in piping bag with a straight tip. Pipe swirls on top of cupcakes and top with a chocolate balls.
