The Story #1:
If enough people email me to make a recipe for something, I get around to it. But really, these cupcakes were brilliant. They are not an overly sweet cupcake and perfect for a special occasion.
Coffee. I don’t drink it, so this cupcake made me nervous. I went to the grocery store, it took me 10 minute to find the coffee aisle (I swear they were hiding in from me!) and then I stood in the aise for another 15 minutes not understanding ANYTHING. Instant, granules, cappuccino, macchiato, Nestle, Folgers, singles… None of it made any sense. I even got desperate and called my coffee drinking friends, but they failed me as well. When I finally decided on a kind, there were no directions on the bottle! If they print direction on Pop-Tarts, why are there not directions on instant coffee?
Well thanks to google, I figured it all out.[end-story]
*For my strong coffee, I mixed about 1/3 cup boiling water with 4-5 teaspoons instant coffee. Then I measured my coffee from that. Adjust recipe using more or less coffee depending on how much you like the flavor of it.
