2cupsSelf-raising flour, siftedrefer notes for substitute
100gmsWhite chocolate, gratedI used Lindt plain white chocolate
2tsp Instant coffee powder
1heaped tspInstant coffee powder
White chocolate curlsto decorate
Preheat oven to 175 C, 10 mins before baking. Line a 12 - cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
In a medium sized bowl, lightly beat the eggs
Add butter and sugar, then mix until light and fluffy. Dont worry, if the batter appears to be a bit curdled.
Add the milk, flour, grated chocolate, coffee powder and stir to combine. Beat with an electric mixwer for 2 mins, until light and creamy.
Divide the mixture evenly between the cupcake liners (2 tbsp approx in each cupcake liner). Bake for 18 - 20 mins until risen and firm to touch. Allow to cool for a few mins and then transfer to a wire rack. Allow to cool completely before icing.
For Icing: Combine sifted icing sugar, butter and coffee; beat with a whisk / wooden spoon until light and fluffy. Spoon topping onto cupcakes, using the back of a spoon and then add decorations.
Caster sugar substitute: to get 1 cup caster sugar, process 1 cup granulated sugar (regular sugar) in a food processor/mixer until fine, but don't powder it like icing sugar.Self-raising flour substitute: to get 1 cup self-raising flour, add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder+ 1/4 tsp salt to 1 cup all purpose flour. I used only 3/4 cup caster sugar for cupcake, since I didn't want it to be too sweet. I think 3/4 cup sugar is enough if you are using icing.Since the batter was kinda thick I added extra 1/4 cup milk in addition to the 1/2 cup milk mentioned in the recipe. You start with 1/2 cup milk and if the batter is too thick, I recommend you add 1/4 cup more milk.If you prefer a stronger coffee taste, you can increase the qty of coffee powder in the cupcakes to 2.5 - 3 tsp.If you add coffee powder directly to the icing mixture it might be a little bit grainy. If you prefer a smooth texture, add coffee powder to 2-3 tbsp hot water, mix it and let it cool. Add this to the icing mixture.
