I know this is the second cupcake recipe in a week, but I just couldn’t wait any longer to share these Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes with you since they are the easiest chocolate cupcakes I’ve ever made and tasted! No kidding, you will be amazed when you try it yourself and see how it’s easy peasy to make. What’s more I can proudly say that these are the best chocolate cupcakes I’ve ever made and tasted! Super easy and super yummy chocolate coffee cupcakes make any occasions even more special! If you and your loved one are chocolate fans, bake it together and enjoy!
Chocolate and coffee always make a super couple and they reach perfection in these chocolate coffee cupcakes! Do you ever dip your chocolate into coffee to double your joy? You will have a similar feeling when you are devouring these cupcakes. Yo don’t need to have chocolate and coffee separately as they are already together in these cupcakes, but if you love coffee so much, you can still pair these with coffee. My choice would be milk to balance the flavors.
If you are one of those who think that egg is a must in cakes, you will have to change your mind after these chocolate coffee cupcakes. They don’t contain any eggs, which makes them even lighter. Do you think that a cake can’t rise enough without eggs because you learnt so in several recipes? Definitely wrong! Look at how my cupcakes are fluffy after rising! No need for eggs every time then!
You know what? These cakes are dairy-free too! If you are vegan or have to follow a dairy-free diet, just leave the frosting out and enjoy the coffee cakes!
