Coffee and Walnut Cupcakes

Here's the recipe...
  • 8oz margarine
  • 8oz caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tsp instant coffee- I LOVE Kenco Millicano
  • 8oz self-raising flour
  • Handful of roughly chopped walnuts
Whisk up the marg and sugar until creamy. 
Add the eggs. 
Mix 3tsp of instant coffee with a splash of boiling water to make a paste. Add the paste to the mixture.

Add the flour and whisk.

Fold in the chopped walnuts and spoon into 12 muffin cases or 16-18 fairy cake cases. Bake for 25 minutes on gas mark 5.

In the meantime, make some mocha buttercream. I would put a recipe up for buttercream but I don’t know how I do it. I just throw in like an spoonful of marg and then add the sugar until it’s thick enough to stick on the whisk. I’m sure if you Google it you’ll get a great one. Then just add some more coffee paste and a tsp of cocoa powder.

Voila! All ready to pipe on when the cakes are cool.
