Cappuccino Muffins

is it just me or does anyone else consistently forget how to spell "cappuccino"?
anyway, my friend kelly gave me this recipe and oh! they are delicious!
they have all kinds of different flavours of milk here in uganda - banana, chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and...coffee! so of course when i saw this coffee-flavoured milk i had to buy it. whether i would drink it as is, or make something with it, i did not know, but somehow, i would ingest said coffee milk.
so {after the tail end of my migraine faded into oblivion} i made the muffins this afternoon with noah.
the recipe doesn't call for coffee-flavoured milk, but i used it and they.were.amazing.

cappuccino muffins

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar {i know. it's a lot. but dang, these are good.}
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp instant coffee {every baker should have a small tin of instant coffee for baking needs. just a personal opinion.}
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon

in a separate bowl combine
1 cup {coffee flavoured} milk
1/2 cup melted butter, cooled
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla

you can even add 3/4 cup chocolate chips for an extra special treat {sadly, chocolate chips do not exist in uganda.}

combine the dry and wet ingredients. stir until just combined.
bake at 375F for 15-20 minutes in greased or paper-lined tins.
makes 18 muffins exactly.

whatever you do, do not drink a cup of tea with these muffins. coffee, milk , water or even juice, but not tea. it is forbidden.

you're welcome.


  1. These look delish my friend, I must try them... by the way, our copies of Joy's book have been ordered (it wouldn't let me send it to you directly so it will be coming with a package from us as soon as I recieve them). As always your baking is so delish... and coffee milk, did you ever just try it on it's own??? Is it thick enough to use like coffee cream???


  2. Mmm sounds good! I must try...and I really must get you some chocolate chips :) I would not survive without my "handful" of chocolate chips when no one is looking haha...it wasn't me mom!

  3. Ah, haha!! I love you!! (you too Shereen!) I may make these tomorrow and have with coffee :)

  4. mmm i can smell them... and as much as i would love to devour one right now, i would more love to devour one with you... over a cup of ... *hem* not tea ;)

  5. Ash - I would LOVE to eat some muffins with you...like...tomorrow morning works for me actually. :)
    Bekki - I was going to try the milk on its own, but then it went slightly sour (milk goes bad fast here) so I decided to just bake with it. But I'm thinking I"m going ot buy it again, just to drink. :) It's not "thick" like coffee cream, but I think it is slightly sweetened so I definitely wouldn't add any sugar in my coffee. :)
    Mom - did ya make them?
    Bean - yes. you MUST get me chocolate chips.

  6. No, not yet! But I have a ton of coffee to use up and I'm thinking of grinding up some inst.coffee with sugar to sprinkle on top! I'll let you know!


I love hearing from you!
