I love coffee and I love cheesecake and I love cupcakes. Why not combine them all and have one of these light and delightful Cappuccino Cupcakes.
This is a very Adults cupcake. It contains well big people stuff so hide them from the kids and when you need to eat one hide in the pantry with your back to the door and stuff them in your face quickly!
See how long they last if you have a coffee addict in the house!
125 gm butter, room temp
3 teaspoons instant coffee
2 tablespoons Tia maria or Kahlua
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/3 cup milk
250 gm cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup icing sugar
The cake is nice and easy it's a one bowl jobbie! Place all your cake ingredients in your mixing bowl and run on low until combined then medium until changes colour and lightens.
Scrape down the sides once or twice to make sure it's all incorporated.
Fill your cupcake papers a third full. You will get 24 cupcakes out of this mixture. Bake in pre heated 180C oven for 10 minutes. Be careful not to bake with the fan on or you will get volcano cupcakes in the middle.
Mean while in another bowl I happened to have handy.
Beat the cream cheese and vanilla until smooth.
Beat in the icing sugar and egg until smooth, scrape the sides and base a couple of times.
At 10 minutes take the cakes out of the oven and spoon the cheesecake mix on top.
I filled the cupcakes to the top of the paper liner, be careful not to over fill. Place back in the oven for a further 15 minutes to finish cooking.
Remove from the oven and cool in the pan until cold.
Dust with drinking chocolate powder when cold and then serve.
Sorry I just couldn't wait for you. *evil grin*
