Coffee Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting | Easy Baking Recipes


Valentine day just passed round the corner. It’s been quite a while in last 12 years of my married life that we went out to this occasion. However this time around my hubby insisted that we visit nearby Phoenix mall to listen to music concert played over there. So late in evening we went over there and instead of taking our seat my husband took me to the basement departmental store and presented me two nonstick frying pans, which I was longing to buy. So this was indeed a surprise for me. After that we went up and watched a couple of performances. A Kathak based fusion and another DJ who flown in from US to entertain us. So overall it was a great evening and the zest was still on after so many years.
Had made these absolutely delicious coffee flavour cupcakes for the occasion. The frosting was cream cheese with a strawberry on top. Needless to say my man was happy to gobble them up.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Butter
1 cup Brown sugar
1 +1/2 cups All purpose Flour
1/4 cup Cocoa powder (dutch process)
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
2 Eggs, room temperature
1 cup brewed coffee, room temperature
1/2 cup mini Chocolate chips
Pinch of salt

Method:
Pre-heat the Oven to 180 Degree Celsius. Line the cupcake tray with the cup liners. 
In a large mixing bowl sift together all the dry ingredients twice. Keep aside.
Cream butter and sugar by a hand blender on low speed for 3-4 minutes. In the same bowl, beat one egg at a time with blender till it is fluffy, then add another. Add brewed coffee and stir well. 

Slowly pour chocolate chips and lightly mix with a spatula. Spoon the mixture into prepared tins (they swell beautifully so fill only 3/4) and bake  for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a cupcakes comes out clean. Remove from Oven and cool on wire racks. 

For Cream Cheese Frosting : Take 1 cup Cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 tsp Vanilla extract, 1 cup cold heavy Cream. Beat the cream cheese until smooth, sift the sugar into the bowl and beat to combine. Add vanilla extract and mix well. Scrape down any cream cheese from the sides of the bowl. In another bowl beat heavy cream at medium speed for 4-5 minutes or until you get soft and firm peaks. With a spatula mix heavy cream with cream cheese. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag and decorate as you want. I added strawberries on top as we are having them in abundance.
