The idea of these cupcakes came from one of my favorite cookbooks “Chocolate and Coffee Bible” While thumbing it, looking for new chocolate-y goodness I stumbled upon a recipe for chocolate cupcakes. Now chocolate vanilla cupcakes are always welcome in my kitchen, but the thought of coffee chocolate cupcakes was haunting me.
For these cupcakes I advice you to use the best dark chocolate you have. I’ve used Green and Black’s organic dark 85% chocolate. It had a subtle bitterness which paired beautifully with the instant coffee in the cake. I also added some instant coffee to the frosting. Addictive!
Sending love your way,
