    Brilliant, but you might want to add a little extra flour because it's quite runny Me and my family loved them and don't add extra coffee!  -  18 Oct 2014

    Amazing recipe! Tasted amazing, but instead of one tablespoon of coffee I used one and a half to make it stronger, also used 100g of each ingredient instead of 75g just to make each cupcake a bit bigger. Added coffee flavoured butter icing on top, with sliced bananas as a finish and went down a treat! 10/10 recipe, would recommend.  -  27 Oct 2017
