Ingredients

  • 75g (1/4 cup + 1tbsp) softened butter
  • 100g (1/2 cup + 1tbsp) light brown soft sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 110g (scant 1 cup) self-raising flour
  • rounded ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 50ml (3 tbsp) Kahlua or Tia Maria
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) vodka (or more Kahlua)
  • 1 tsp coffee extract (I used Nielsen Massey)
  • 1 Tbsp strong hot coffee
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp Kahlua/Tia Maria
  • 1 tsp vodka
  • 1.5 tbsp plain flour
  • 40ml (scant 3 tbsp) full fat milk
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) Kahlua/Tia Maria
  • 65g (generous ¼ cup) softened butter
  • 65g (1/3 cup) caster (superfine) sugar

Directions

  • Heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4 and line a muffin tray with about 8 cupcake liners.
  • Whisk together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time whisking extremely well after each addition. Sift in the flour and baking powder and whisk until just combined then finally mix in the Kahlua/Tia Maria, vodka and coffee extract.
  • Divide the batter between the cupcake cases, filling them ⅔rds full. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Turn the cupcakes out onto a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
  • To make the syrup, dissolve the sugar in the hot coffee then stir in the Kahlua/Tia Maria and vodka. Brush each of the cupcakes with a little of the syrup.
  • To make the icing, whisk together the flour, milk and Kahlua/Tia Maria in a small pan until smooth. Place over a medium-low heat and whisk constantly until the mixture has thickened into a very thick paste; scrape it into a small bowl, cover with clingfilm directly on the surface and refrigerate until completely cold.
  • Whisk together the butter and sugar for several minutes until extremely light and fluffy and the sugar has dissolved. Whisk in the chilled paste a little at a time, whisking well after each addition, until it is all incorporated. Dont be tempted to add any extra liquid to the icing or it may split.
  • Transfer the icing into a piping bag fitted with a large open star nozzle and pipe dollops or swirls onto the top of each cupcake, garnish with coffee beans (preferably chocolate covered ones if you can find them).
