Perfect coffee break treat: coffee muffins

coffee-muffinsCoffee and cake: were two words ever more perfectly paired? These coffee muffins are the perfect accompaniment to your mid-morning cup of coffee, and make the perfect treat to take into work on a Friday or to celebrate a colleague’s birthday.

To make 6 muffins, you’ll need:

What to do:

  1. Preheat the over to 190 degrees Celsius.
  2. Start by making the coffee from freshly-roasted espresso coffee beans. Set aside until completely cool.
  3. Line the muffin tin with cases, and set aside
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine both the sugars, flour and cinnamon.
  5. In a separate bowl or measuring jug, put the egg, milk, coffee, oil and vanilla. Beat together until fully combined.
  6. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Fold with a wooden spoon until combined.
  7. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups until they’re about three quarters full, to give plenty of room for the muffins to rise.
  8. Put the tray in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes until well-risen and firm to the touch. A skewer inserted into the thickest part of the muffin should come out clean with no traces of uncooked batter.
  9. Transfer to a serving rack, and serve slightly warm with a large mug of your favourite coffee.
