Cappuccino Cupcakes

Cappuccino Cupcakes

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
2 large eggs
1 cup self-rising flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1 heaping tbsp instant coffee or expresso powder
3 - 4 tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 350 and line 12 cup muffin tin with papers

Put all the ingredients except the milk into a food processor and pulse until completely blended. Pulse again, adding milk through the tube to form a smooth batter (do not process too much).

Spoon evenly into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes or until the centre comes clean with a toothpick.

Let cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to continue cooling.

Frost as desired or sprinkle with a mix of icing sugar and cinnamon while still warm.

You can make your own self rising flour

One cup self-rising flour equals:
1 cup all-purpose flour, plus
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder, plus
1/8 teaspoons salt

That does sound good, doesn't it?
And all I need to get is:
1 cup self-rising flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1 heaping tbsp instant coffee or expresso powder

Oh, and a food processor

But this recipe does have me thinking..... I can almost taste them!

Well, you did buy a stick blender for one recipe, why not go for it and get the food processor for this one!

Wow Laurie, you've got Pacanis almost baking cupcakes now!

Well, first I need to see what the difference is between a food processor and a food mill, which I was just reading about in another thread.....
But I already have cupcake/muffin pans

Or make small batches

Do you have a blender? That would probably work but a food mill wouldn't because it strains the food through.
