Malted Espresso Cupcakes


From our library here I brought home 125 best Cupcake recipes. So far it seems to have some yummy recipes. Over the next while I will be making a few of them. The Malted Espresso Cupcakes are really good, nice and moist. The frosting really adds to them. Definitely one to try.

1. In a small bowl, mix together with a whisk, flour, baking powder and salt.

2. In another small bowl, whisk together malted milk powder and espresso until smooth.

3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, butter and eggs, until smooth. Alternately whisk in flour mixture and espresso mixture, making three additions of flour mixture and two of espresso mixture, beating until smooth.

4. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and tops of cupcakes spring back when lightly touched. Let cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely on rack. Top cooled cupcakes with frosting.

Do you know what? I have never baked with malted milk powder. It's something we don't see here a lot. But I did buy a jar of malt powder that I'm planning to use soon. Cupcakes look yummy.
