I’m actually not a big coffee drinker, but I do occasionally indulge in the overly sugary coffee concoctions you find at Starbucks and Coffee Bean. They’re sweet enough to be cupcakes as it is, may as well make a coffee cupcake!
Ingredients for 2 dozen cupcakes:
• 2 cups flour
• 1 1/2 cups sugar
• 1/4 tsp. salt
• 1 cup butter
• 3 tbs instant coffee
• 1/2 cup buttermilk
• 2 eggs
• 1 tsp baking soda
• 2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350F.
Boil about 8oz. of water over medium heat and add the instant coffee.
Mix in the butter and stir until the butter is melted into the coffee.
Turn off heat and place coffee/butter mixture into a heat safe bowl, set aside.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking soda.
Pour the coffee/butter into the flour mixture.
