Weekend Baking | Coffee & Walnut Cupcakes With Maple Syrup Icing


I devised this recipe as I can't really drink coffee but I absolutely love the taste and smell of it and so by putting it in a cake I can still get the flavour but as it's such a small amount spread out, it doesn't affect me. For the coffee I use the Little's Maple Walnut Coffee which smells incredible! To enhance the walnut flavour I've added some on top too. Read on to check out the recipe...


Ingredients
Makes 12
For The Cakes
2 Medium Eggs
120g Of Self Raising Flour
120g of Granulated Sugar
120g of Unsalted Butter
2 tsp of coffee dissolved in a splash of water
For the lcing
75g of Icing Sugar
75g of Unsalted Butter
4tsps of Maple Syrup
Walnuts (to decorate)

Method
1) Add all the cake ingredients together in a bowl and mix until the batter in smooth
2) Transfer the batter into cupcakes cases and bake at 180° for 15-20 minutes
3) Leave the cupcakes to cool and make the icing mixture by combining the ingredients together in a separate bowl
4) When the cupcakes are cool, pipe the icing on top and decorate with a walnut
5) Serve and enjoy!




Thanks for reading :)
