Coffee and Walnut Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

It has been so exciting posting all about the wedding fun, but now 5 weeks later we are back into a bit of a routine and I have been back to doing what I love most, baking but more accurately, baking cupcakes. Another new recipe, again inspired basically by what I had on my kitchen shelves. So here is my recipe for Coffee and Walnut Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting:

Ingredients

  • 120g of Plain Flour
  • 100g of Sugar
  • 1tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/2tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 200g of Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 50g of Crushed Walnuts
  • 25ml of Strong Black Coffee
  • 50g of Icing Sugar
  • 25g of Cocoa Powder

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (Fan) and put your cupcake cases into your tray
  2. Sift the sugar into a bowl and add 100g of the butter and cream until smooth
  3. Then sift in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder and mix until crumbly
  4. Then add the eggs and whisk until smooth
  5. Finally add the coffee and walnuts and combine thoroughly
  6. Then spoon into your cupcake cases and bake for 12-15 minutes until cooked (the best way to tell is to gently push the cupcake and if it springs back, it is ready)
  7. Once the cupcakes have cooled you can start on the frosting
  8. Sift the icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl and add the remaining butter
  9. Cream together until smooth
  10. You can then use a palette knife or icing bag to decorate your cupcakes!
  11. Then enjoy!

I have to be honest with you if you follow my blog and make my recipes, I was not a mad fan of these Coffee and Walnut Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting. I thought that they were a little dry, but this may be because I made up the recipe as I went along. I do however love this flavour combination so will definitely be giving them another go.

If I find a better recipe I will be sure to share it with you. If you have a great recipe for coffee and walnut cake I would also love to hear your suggestions!
