CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES WITH KAHLUA CREAM FROSTING
*makes 12 cupcakes
3/4 c + 2 T flour
1/2 c + 2 T sugar
6 T cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside
1/2 c brewed coffee
1/2 c buttermilk
2 T melted butter
2 T sour cream
2 tsp vanilla
2 T Kahlua
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add egg, coffee, milk, butter, sour cream, vanilla and Kahlua to the center. Combine thoroughly.
Pour batter evenly into cupcake/muffin pan lined with cupcake liners. Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool.
1 c whipping cream
2 T powdered sugar
Whip cream with sugar until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
2 T butter
4 T mascarpone cheese
6 T cream cheese
1 T Kahlua
2 T good quality instant coffee
1/2 c powdered sugar
*grated chocolate optional
Combine butter and cheeses and mix on high until thoroughly combined. In a small bowl, dissolve instant coffee in Kahlua. Add to butter mixture. Add in sugar and mix well. Carefully fold in whipping cream.
Pipe frosting on top of cupcakes and top with a dash of grated chocolate. **If frosting starts to “melt” a bit, place it in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Once all cupcakes have been frosted, be sure to place them in the refrigerator immediately so frosting will maintain its shape.
You girls are too talented! …And yes, I’m totally hungry/craving a cupcake now. 🙂
Thanks Ashley! We had a fun time planning this post 🙂
You three just took cupcakes to a whole new level, and I love it! I might have creepily stared at the pictures for at least five minutes, imagining what they taste like. You girls are so creative and talented!
Hahaha! Thanks Olivia! You made our day!
Not going to lie, I wish we could have had an actual live party to eat all three of our delicious cupcakes together!! I love kahlua so I’m definitely trying these!
I know, right? Maybe next time we need to mail each other samples.
I wanted to make some cupcakes =) Now I have some receipts, thanks!
You’re welcome! Hopefully they will last longer than ours did!
Yummy!! I’m drooling over all three cupcakes. Way to go ladies! I mean who doesn’t like cupcakes?!! Your cupcakes have two things that I love Kahlua and coffee:) This is definitely a recipe I need to try.
These look AMAZING!
