Cappuccino Buttermilk Muffins ~ Coffee Mania

Anything coffee attracts me like a magnet..... :-) There is no parallel to the goodness of a warm Cappuccino Buttermilk Muffin loaded with Dark Chocolate Chips....

This is the first time I made cupcakes.... where else would I have gotten the recipe other than Deeba.... her first try and the luscious 2nd try..... I just had to..... I wanted to drop whatever I was doing and just run to the kitchen... alas was not at home....

Took my first try for babaji.... They turned out yummy.... gobbled up quickly.....


The next lot was devoured at the Luthra's.....

The entire house was filled with the aroma of these muffins baking.... Could hardly wait for them to come out of the oven n cool...

Another lot for friends..... That's Shuchi and her parents with their Diwali gift.....

Vibha and Tarini loved the warmed muffins....

Cappuccino Buttermilk Muffins
adapted from Nic @ Cherrapeno and Deeba @ PAB
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsps baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup vanilla sugar
1/2 cup melted butter, cooled
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsps instant coffee
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Method:
Preheated oven at 180C.
Mix coffee into melted butter. Whisk well.
Whisk eggs lightly into the buttermilk with the vanilla extract.
In a big bowl mix well the following - both flours, vanilla sugar, baking powder & salt.
Now pour in the buttermilk mixture & the butter mixture, and mix in gently by hand till moist. DO NOT over mix or muffins won't be nice & soft. Fold in chocolate chips lightly & do not over mix.
Fill up the prepared muffin tins 2/3 full, sprinkle a few coffee beans if you like. Put in to bake for 20-22 minutes till done.
Cool on rack.

There is really nothing better than gifting homemade goodies to loved ones on a festival... really spreads the cheer.....
A variation could be chopped walnuts on the top and chocochips inside.....

The ultimate in comfort food.... I'm already hungry n droolly writing about these muffins...
Lleaving to grab a muffin off the cooling shelf...
