Coffee Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

You’re my honey
bunch, sugar plum, pumpy-umpy-umpkin, you’re my sweetie pie, you’re my
cuppy-cake, gum drop, snoogums, boogums, you’re the apple of my eye! This was the song that came to my mind today, after I baked these aromatic cupcakes.. This song was my ringtone 8 years back and I used to get bouncy, springy to pick up my mobile everytime it rung.. SOmewhere deep in the corner of my heart , I always wished my phone rung more often that it did, so I could hear the song 🙂

My house smelled coffeee .. espresso, capuccino ,americano, latte and what not ! Lil V returns from schoool, at the door step asks me ” What’s cooking today?” His footsteps traversed to our experiment corner in the house, Our Kitchen and tried sneaking through..

Shortbread cookies and Cupcakes !! All in a day ! A special day for him as his mama has baked like this after ages..

Watching his animation programs as usual after school, he picked his special snack today and was munching delightfully. Coffee is not in V’s usual favourable list , but he enjoyed this cupcake just like he would enjoy a fairy cupcake. He loved his shortbread’s ,but the GUI was not that great that I can brag about it in the same post.

National
Cupcake week beginning from Sept 15th -Sept 21st , this post of mine has
come right on time for the national celebration and Betta Bake a Cupcake Competition.#bettabakeoff I have just created my twitter account for the first time in my life.. and now trying to get the hang of # tags 🙂 Looks like everything is going to get the hash tag.. Additive I m sure !

Amidst all the chit chat and the chatter , here is the recipe for the Coffee Chocolate Cupcakes. I have adapted this recipe from Deeba’s Passionate about Baking. A must visit place for all the newbies into baking and for all those who are into blogging for a while, Deeba’s lovely space needs no introduction. I drool over her pictures and envy her props. Head over to her space for more virtual baked goodies.

             COFFEE CHOCOLATECHIP CUPCAKES
Prep Time: 15 minutes |Total Time: 40 minutes |Yields 14 Cupcakes
INGREDIENTS:
2  Cups ( 260 gm) Plain Flour
1 ½ Tsp (6 gm) Baking Powder
½ Cup (115 gm) Unsalted Butter
1 Cup (200 gm) Caster Sugar
1 ½ Tbsp. Coffee Powder , I have
used Nescafé Sachets
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
1 Large Egg
1 Cup ( 225 gm) Semi Skimmed Milk
100gm Dark Chocolate Chips
DIRECTIONS:
  • Preheat
    the fan assisted oven to 180 °C, gas mark 6. Line the Muffin tray with Muffin
    Cases.
  • Cream
    the butter, sugar and coffee powder together and now add the egg whisking
    slowly and steadily. Add the vanilla extract to it.
  • In a
    clean bowl, combine the dry ingredients – the flour and baking powder. A good
    mix with a dry spoon to bring them all together.
  • Gradually
    add the dry flour mixture prepared above and milk to the wet mixture,
    stirring to combine until smooth.
  •  Fold in Chocolate chips.
  •  Spoon into muffin cases upto 2/3 full.
  •  Bake for 15-20 minutes, until springy to the touch. Check in the centre whether
    the skewer inserted comes out clean. Cool in the tin for about a minute before putting the muffins onto a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTES:
The recipe calls for 1 tsp Baking powder. I have used 1.5 tsp,since my baking powder was nearing its expiry date.
While baking this lovely cupcake, I had misplaced my cup measurer and had to use my weighing scale to do the same. Hence I had to literally convert every single ingredient from cup to grams and then get into the making.
