Where’s my coffee? Oh yea – I used it in my cupcakes! I really need my daily caffeine fix, so I guess I’ll be having Chocolate Espresso Cupcakes instead, poor me, NOT! It’s my breakfast and coffee all rolled into one, it doesn’t get much better than this.
Last week we had so much rain that the kids were stuck inside, so we decided that it would be a great time to do some baking. The kids wanted to make cupcakes, from a box, so I decided that I would give them a food challenge, hopefully to add a little pizazz to the mix.
They chose to use a chocolate cake mix, so I challenged them to go through the cupboards to find something that goes well with chocolate. They came up with a lot of really good ideas, mixing chocolate chips in the batter, filling them with pie filling, topping them with fresh fruit but the best one they came up with was using some instant espresso coffee. Apparently my children have developed very sophisticated palettes because these were AMAZING!!!!
These are a great excuse for eating cupcakes for breakfast!
