10 to 30 mins
For the coffee cupcakes
- 75g/2¾oz golden caster sugar
- 75g/2¾oz soft light brown sugar
- 175g/6oz plain flour
- 50g/1¾oz ground almonds
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 125g/4½oz melted unsalted butter
- 2 large free-range eggs
- 2 tbsp instant coffee granules
- coffee beans
For the icing
- 250g/9oz unsalted butter
- 400g/14oz icing sugar
- 1 tbsp instant coffee granules
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp milk
To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.
Place the sugars, flour, ground nuts, cocoa, baking powder, melted butter and eggs in a large bowl. Pour the coffee into the bowl too. Beat with an electric whisk until smooth.
Divide the mixture between the paper cases and bake for 16–18 minutes until risen and springy to the touch. Leave to cool for a few minutes then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
To make the icing, put the butter in a large bowl then sift in the icing sugar. Mix the coffee, vanilla and milk in a small bowl or jug and pour into the butter mixture. Beat for a few minutes with an electric whisk until pale and fluffy.
Swirl or pipe some icing on top of each cupcake, then decorate with a few coffee beans and a dusting of cocoa powder.
