  • 6 oz butter
  • 6 oz sugar
  • 5 oz self raising flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder & 1 oz cocoa powder sieved together
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons cold strong black coffee


  1. Pre heat oven 190C, 385F Gas mark 5
  2. cream together the butter and sugar till the mixture is a pale lemon colour (easier using an electric mixer)
  3. add the eggs 1 at a time
  4. mix in the cold coffee
  5. fold in the dry ingredients (lowest speed on electric mixer)
  6. put mixture in muffin cases so they are 3/4 full and bake for 15-18 mins. check they're done by pushing a toothpick in 1 and if it comes out clean then they're ready.
  7. allow to cool on a wire rack and then decorate as desired. I smother the tops with butter icing or melted chocolate.


you won't be able to taste the coffee it just makes the chocolate taste richer.
