Coffee and Spice Muffins

For mature audiences only

By:Liyang HU
Time:1 hour
Serves:12

Ingredients:

  • 300g plain flour
  • 5g bicarbonate of soda
  • 10g baking powder
  • 2.5g salt
  • 75g granulated sugar
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 10g ground ginger
  • 5g ground nutmeg
  • 10g ground cinnamon
  • 75g brown muscovado sugar
  • 200ml espresso (about 4 or 5 double shots)
  • 50ml milk (to top up the espresso)
  • 10ml vanilla extract
  • 75g butter, melted
  • 2 eggs

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients, except for the muscavado
  3. In a measuring jug, melt the muscavado sugar by pouring hot espresso shots over it, topping up with milk to make 250ml of liquid
  4. Melt the butter in a microwave, pour into the measuring jug, followed by the vanilla and eggs, and whisk thoroughly
  5. Combine the dry and wet mixtures in the mixing bowl with a large spoon — it's supposed to be lumpy
  6. Divvy up the batter into the muffin tray — you'll want to use muffin cases for less mess
  7. Bake in oven for 24 minutes or so; in the meantime, prepare the Coffee and Spice Frosting
  8. Check the muffins are done by skewering it with a long sharp knife — it should come out clean
  9. Wait for the muffins to cool down a little, and spread/swirl the frosting on top with a teaspoon

Yes.

Though if you look carefully the first recipe is for the frosting, which could have other applications.
