Mocha Cupcakes

Love cupcakes/muffins in any form; may be becos I luv to bake ma kids' favorites ,like any other MOM. They just drool over it. Won't get much time usually to decorate the topping as they don't leave anything behind for that. They don't need the topping too..they luv to have it hot ..!!


Recipe Courtesy: 'Friday' Weekly


Among the  16 different types of cupcakes/muffins which I know, coffee flavoured ones are ma all time favorites...like cappuccino cup cakes, tiramisu, mocha cup cakes....Now this one is a hot favourite at Kitsch; the richness of mocha is complemented by the creaminess of chocolate topping to give a sinfully delicious treat. This recipe was published in 'Friday' weekly on last friday ;I couldn't resist by the luk of it that i made this the same day.

Ingredients: (Serves 12) 

Unsalted Butter 90gm
Castor Sugar 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence 1/2 tsp
Eggs 2
Self raising flour 1 cup
Cocoa powder 15g
Instant granulated coffee 1 tsp
Hot water 1 tbsp

For the icing:( I took abt 2/3rd of the below ingredients as we don't like too mch topping on the cakes)

Unsalted butter 1 1/2 cups
Icing sugar 1 3/4
Dark chocolate 50 gm

Method

Dissolve instant coffe in 2 tbsp hot water and set aside to cool.

In a mixing bowl cream butter, sugar and vanilla essence and add eggs slowly.

Mix in sifted flour and cocoa powder.

Finally add the dissolved coffee and mix well. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cup lined trays. Try to fill the cups equally so that they are baked evenly-abt 3/4 of the cups.

Bake at 170-180C for 15-18mts.



For the Icing:

Melt chocolate and set aside to cool a little in a bain-marie or microwave(High for 1 min.).
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then mix in the melted chocolate.
Spread chocolate icing evenly over cooked cupcakes before serving.
