Mocha Cupcakes
Great at any time of day, these indulgent little cakes boast the perfect fusion of chocolate and espresso, with a delicious chocolate buttercream topping.

Ingredients - Makes 16
115g butter (unsalted)
115g granulated sugar
115g self raising flour
3 eggs
30g cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 rijo42 espresso - cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

To make the topping:
100g icing sugar
125g butter (unsalted) at room temperature cut into cubes
30g cocoa powder
White and milk chocolate shavings to decorate or milk chocolate mini eggs if producing these for Easter

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C for conventional or 180C for fan assisted
  2. Put the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and mash together using a fork
  3. Add the vanilla extract
  4. Add the eggs and whisk together using an electric hand whisk
  5. Next add in the flour, rijo42 espresso and cocoa powder and beat together until it achieves a thick smooth consistency
  6. Portion the mixture equally between cupcake cases or place straight into your muffin tin or silicone cupcake mould
  7. Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes
  8. After the 15 minutes, remove cakes from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the cakes out onto a wire cooling rack
  9. Now make the chocolate butter cream by placing the butter into a bowl with the icing sugar and whisk using an electric hand whisk until it achieves a white, fluffy and light consistency. Now add the cocoa powder and whisk into the butter cream until completely mixed
  10. Pipe the topping (or spread using a spatula) on to the top of each cake
  11. Decorate with chocolate shavings. You could also use finely chopped nuts, chocolate covered coffee beans, chocolate sprinkles, its really down to personal preference.
