Mocha Latte Cupcake – buttery Kahlua-laced coffee cupcake with bits of chocolate coffee candies, topped with espresso-flavored whipped white chocolate ganache decorated with melted chocolate swirls and chocolate sprinkles. Price available upon request.
I want my coffee in a cupcake!
I am not a coffee drinker—a cup of java is just not my thing. However, I like its flavor in baked goods and confectionery. I have tried tons of coffee-flavored cupcake recipes but this version is the one I like best. It is buttery but there is the lingering taste of coffee. I use instant espresso granules and Kahlua for stronger flavor. There are also bits of chocolate coffee candies inside. Topping it is an espresso-flavored whipped white chocolate ganache. I added melted chocolate swirls on top of the ganache to simulate the decorative touch that baristas usually put on top of capuccinos.
