Mochaccino Cupcakes - Just look at that beauty!
I’ll start off by saying, if there is one thing you need to make this weekend, this has to be it! Mochaccino Cupcakes. Two words and one bite that will blow your mind. I was going to say it will change your life, but that’s a bit dramatic.. or maybe not. Because these cupcakes are seriously delicious! Magnificently moist and incredibly moreish. Each cupcake has a perfect balance of cake, coffee and chocolate! The triple C-threat! So have I got your attention yet?
This love story started with my impulse purchase of espresso coated espresso beans. I scoffed some straightaway but then realised how cute these beans would look on top of a cupcake. After some serious researching and recipe surfing, I found this recipe.
Got these beautiful cupcake liner for a bargain at my local cake shop! So pretty <3
For the cake, I slightly adapted Brown Eyed Baker’s recipe; I omitted the espresso and instead upped the amount of coffee powder. For the frosting, I used my standard buttercream recipe as the base, but added coffee and melted chocolate. Finally, leftover melted chocolate was drizzled over the top of the frosting and decorated with an espresso coated espresso bean.
The girls at work loved it, my mum loved it, and I needless to say loved it. Honestly this might be my favourite cupcake recipe to date, sorry Green Tea cupcakes, you’ve been pipped to the post.
Another photo to tempt you!
