    Tantalizing Tuesday! The best way to start your day is with Folgers in your Cup(cake)!!


    Yield: 12 cupcakes

    Prep Time: 15 minutes Baking Time: 17-20 minutes

    1-1/3 all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    ½ cup whole milk (I used almond milk)
    ½ cup strong brewed coffee (I used an individual serving pack of instant coffee)
    1½ teaspoons espresso powder
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature (I used Earth Balance vegan margarine)
    ½ cup granulated sugar
    ½ cup light brown sugar
    1 egg, at room temperature (I used egg-replacer)

    1. Mix the espresso powder into the brewed coffee until dissolved; set aside to cool to room temperature.

    2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a standard-size muffin tin with paper liners.

    3. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

    4. Beat the butter and both sugars together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until combined. In a measuring cup, combine the milk, brewed coffee mixture and vanilla. Slowly add the flour mixture, alternating with the coffee mixture, ending with the flour mixture.

    5. Divide the batter evenly between the 12 liners. Baking for 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting cupcakes.

    Espresso Buttercream Frosting

    Makes enough to frost 12 cupcakes (but in my opinion, this stuff is so good that you will want more)

    1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature (I used Earth Balance vegan margarine)
    2½ cups powdered sugar
    1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
    1½ teaspoons espresso powder

    1. Mix the espresso powder into the vanilla until dissolved; set aside.

    2. Using the whisk attachment of a stand mixer, whip the butter on medium-high speed for 5 minutes, stopping once to scrape the sides of the bowl. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the powdered sugar a little at a time, waiting until it is mostly incorporated before adding more. Once all of the powdered sugar has been added, scrape the sides of the bowl and increase the speed to medium-high and whip until fluffy, about a minute or two. Add the espresso and vanilla mixture and continue to mix at medium-high until it is completely incorporated, scraping the sides as necessary.
