What You Need

Cake Mix – I love Butter Golden For This Recipe

10 -12 oz of coffee ( any flavor will do)

Can of White icing

What To Do

Preheat Oven To The Temperature As Instructed On The Cake Box ( It is Usually 350)

In a bowl mix – dry cake mix, coffee ( 8 – 10 oz) the batter should look like this picture below- that is it - do NOT add eggs, oil or water

Mix well — if you have to use more coffee that is fine — it should look like a normal batter

Line a cupcake tray with cupcake liners and fill each one to the 3/4th mark on the liner

Cook until fully cooked – I use the old toothpick trick – stick a toothpick into the middle of the cake if it comes out clean you are done

In a small bowl – I put about 1/2 a can of frosting — slowly add in coffee — you want to lightly flavor the frosting — mix till well combined

Frost each cupcake and enjoy!

Have you tried using chocolate icing for a more mocha cupcake? Does that work out?

I was thinking milk chocolate or buttercream icing would be yummy, too! Thanks for the simple recipe! :)

Not a coffee drinker..but was thinking of making these for my kids teachers/principle. Is it just the flavour, or is there a “caffeine kick” to them?

Are you sure you do not have to add eggs?

Yep :)

You don’t have to add eggs normally it works fine. It changes the texture mildly and the cake isn’t as springy, but it works.

Mine don’t taste very much like coffee! I make pretty strong coffee too. Any help please.

Instead of the coffee..could we substitute one of the cappuccinos?
