Coffee and Walnut Cupcakes
Originally uploaded by Spinneretta
Baked some of these using my Mum's Coffee and Walnut Cake recipe :)
6oz Self Raising Flour
1 Tbsp Instant Coffee mixed with 1 Tbsp of Water or 1 1/2 Tbsp of strong coffee
1/4 Cup of Walnuts, chopped fine
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and flour and mix well. Add in coffee flavour, mix well.
Fold in walnuts.
Pour mixture into greased cupcake tins (or use the paper liners) or a greased cake tin.
Cook at 350 for 20-25 minutes (cupcakes) or a little longer for large cake- or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Frost with coffee flavoured buttercream:
1 stick (4oz) butter
2 Cups Icing Sugar (Confectioner's Sugar)
1 Tbsp of Instant Coffee mixed with 1 Tbsp of water or 1.5 Tbsp of strong coffee.
Put ingredients into mixer bowl and mix until a spreadable consistency is reached.
They taste delicious ;)
