Nutella Mocha Cupcakes

Hazelnut, Chocolate, Coffee = Goodness!! The mocha cupcake part was light and full of coffee flavour, I then spread the top with nutella and piped nutella buttercream on top. I think these have to be my favourite cupcakes so far, they combine the 3 flavours I live for.. Yummmo!!! :) X

2tbsp coffee granules, 75g butter, 85g caster sugar, 1tbsp honey, 200ml water, 225g plain flour, 2tbsp cocoa, 1tsp bicarb of soda, 3 tbsp milk, 1 large egg
GAS 4 / 180C

Put the coffee, butter, sugar, honey and water in a pot and heat gently stirring until the sugar has dissolved and butter melted> Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 mins. Pour into a large heatproof bowl and cool completely.

When cooled, sift in the flour and cocoa. Dissolve the bicarb soda in the milk and add to the mixture as well as the egg. Beat well until smooth. Pour the mix into paper cases and bake for 15-20mins until well risen and firm to touch. Cool on a wire rack.

Top with nutella and for the icing beat 200g icing sugar, 100g butter, 2tbsp nutella and a dash of milk together and pipe on top! mmmmmmmmmmmmm.... :)
