IMG_689975g butter
70g caster sugar
1 egg
120g low protein flour (or cake flour)
1 tsp baking powder
50g fresh milk

食材 (可做6个)



IMG_6897– sift both flour and baking powder together. dissolve coffee granules with 1 tbsp of water, mix well, and add to fresh milk

– beat softened butter with sugar and a pinch of salt till pale and fluffy

– add in egg in a few additions, and incorporate well

– finally, fold in chopped walnuts

– spoon batter into cupcake liner till 80 percent full, and place a whole walnut on the top of it

– bake in preheated oven of 165 degrees C for 22 mins

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_6900– i doubled the batter and made 21 mini cupcakes

– i used 133g sugar for double batter and also added a tsp of Godiva liquer. I also sprinkled some chopped pistachio on the batter (after pouring into cupcake liner) before baking

– my mini cupcakes were baked for 18 mins

    Hi Victoria,

    When I first saw the recipe, I thought you made just 6 of these very fragrant cupcakes. My instant reaction is …. No way!!! Your church must be very sharing to enjoy just 6 cupcakes…. LOL!

    Good that you baked double amount of these 😀
