These are the most moist, delicious cupcakes I have ever had! They sound so rich, but they are just perfect. I dont drink coffee and never have but LOVED these. Made them for a present and everybody asked for recipe.
My goodness, these cupcakes are downright addictive! The frosting and filling are light and creamy... just the right accompaniment for the rich cupcake.
In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add oil, coffee, and eggs. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Mix in the sour cream and vanilla Spoon the batter evenly into prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full. Bake until a tester inserted in center comes out clean, for 16 to 18 minutes. Let them cool in pans on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove from the pans and cool completely on wire racks.
Spread the Coffee Butter cream frosting evenly over the cupcakes and garnish with chocolate covered coffee beans, if desired.
