Coffee Cupcakes | Easy Baking Recipes

Coffee Cupcakes
It's been a while since I posted any sweet-bake on the blog.I haven't been baking much too,just few breads and cookies,that's all.Main reason being the dreaded one-d.i.e.t.Now that I am posting a sweet bake does not mean that I am off the diet,of course;).Inspiration to bake these cookies came from my amma who saw a similar cupcake recipe on Vanitha and urged me to try it.

When I went through the recipe(Lakshmi Nair's look & cook series on Vanitha),it looked strikingly similar to my go-to and ever-favorite cupcake recipe.Not only that,with the same amount of butter,I could make more cupcakes,so that was a relief,I could share it with friends.Shared calories:)
Coffee Cupcakes
Though I love coffee and coffee flavored desserts,I haven't really ventured into adding more coffee in my bakes,so why not make a start with this one?The cupcakes,no doubt,taste excellent(even if I say so myself)on their own but the coffee,oh the coffee,elevated it to a different level.If you like coffee,you'd sure flip on this one.

These make for a great tea-time(or coffee-time?)snack and can be served plain.I had some leftover whipped cream ganache in the fridge,which refused to whip,by the way and dripped all over the cupcakes,making it moist and creamy on top.So either way,it tasted great.

  • The icing or rather the glaze I used is a whipped ganache,the recipe is here.
  • I baked these cupcakes in the otg,but the top didn't brown much after baking and I wanted a golden brown top.I baked the cupcakes on Broil mode for 2 minutes and got the desired colour.
Update-I accidentally added a picture from the Torcetti post among the step by step pics,sorry for the mistake.Have rectified it.Thanks Malvecka!
