Hi all!! Friday tomorrow, very much glad about that! Spencer and I are going for a freebie meal tomorrow at our Wedding venue (Holiday Inn) to trial the food, fingers crossed we like it as we’ve already paid the deposit! I’m then off to Cardiff on Saturday for a friend’s birthday, very much looking forward to the weekend! Are you up to much?
I want to make some Oreo cupcakes at some point during the weekend but it is highly unlikely as I’ll be spending Saturday tarting myself up and Sunday being hungover! Will let you know if I do get around to it though! My most recent batch of cakes that I made were coffee cupcakes. I will admit that I did botch them a bit as I didn’t have most of the necessary ingredients! They came out lovely though so all was good!
I substituted butter milk with semi skimmed milk & a drop of vanilla essence, proper coffee for a Nescafe sachet and soft brown sugar for caster sugar.
You are now ready to spoon this mixture into the cases and bake for the time stated.
reading the recipe back I can see that I made a little error! At the start of the recipe I mixed all of the butter and sugar up and added part of it to the cakes, the actual recipe says to use the amount of butter stated and ALL of the sugar, so, for the cream I shouldn’t have the sugar mixed with the butter like I have – which explains why my cream was quite gritty!
These cakes were very yummy, even Spencer liked them and he doesn’t like coffee! The coffee cream reminded me very much of Coffee Puffs from Greggs – yum!! These are one to be making again (and properly next time!)
I thought I would share this post with you even though the cakes are quite botched and far from perfect just to show you botching cakes is okay haha!!!
Best served with a cup of frothy coffee while cwtched on the sofa wearing pyjamas 🙂
