Coffeelicious Cupcakes!!!

The aroma of coffee brewing at home is sure to make any person feel excited and make even the laziest of all to get up from the couch and grab that cup.

But do you know drinking up is not the only way to enjoy coffee? You could eat it too! You read it right, EAT IT!

Following endless experiments, I landed upon discovering a new use of coffee in the form of a yummy cupcake that will surely make your sweet temptations go on a roller coaster ride and not settle in just one piece.

Presenting to you heaven in your hands: coffee cupcake recipe..


2 cups flour
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 and 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
1.5 tsp baking powder
0.5 tsp baking soda
2 sachets instant coffee powder (Bru)

For the topping:

1 Galaxy Milk Chocolate bar
1 Dairy Milk Fruit n Nut Chocolate bar
1 tbsp milk
Few cornflakes for garnish


- Preheat oven.
- Mix butter and sugar together.
- Add the eggs and beat with an electric beater.
- Add flour and milk, continue whisking.
- Add baking powder, baking soda, coffee powder and vanilla essence. Beat.
- Pour the batter in greased cupcake moulds.
- Bake at 200 to 250 degrees (or as per your oven instructions).
- Once the cupcakes are done, let them cool.
-  Melt the chocolate bars along with milk (should be of thick consistency). And put a spoonful of this on the cupcake and few flakes of cornflakes. Let it set.
- Takes about 20 to 25 minutes to cook ( depends on oven)
- To check if cupcake is ready, insert a toothpick, if it comes out clean, it is done.

And the most important step of all: Grab a good book and enjoy with every bite!

P.S - Coffee and chocolate = fun blast in every bite...
