Cappuccino Chip Muffins

If you are a coffee lover like me you'll have to make these Cappuccino Chip Muffins. I acquired my taste for coffee a long time ago - perched on my daddy's knee at breakfast sipping from his cup. He was a dairy farmer so he was always up before anyone else, but he would be back in the house by breakfast time, and I'd find my place on his lap.

I found this recipe in my Totally Coffee Cookbook. My friend Cathy gave me this little cookbook, but she probably didn't know just how much I like my coffee.

Cappuccino Chip Muffins
2 tablespoons instant expresso
1 tablespoon hot water
2 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons low fat milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease muffin pan or line with paper cups. Stir expresso and hot water together until dissolved; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar. Add cream, milk, butter, and expresso, stir until combined. In a separate bowl, combine both flours, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients and stir until flour disappears. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until muffins test done.

This is my favorite instant coffee that I keep for traveling, so this is what I used in the recipe for the "instant expresso".

Whisk the eggs, brown sugar, cream, milk, butter, and expresso together in one bowl. Combine the flours, baking powder, and salt in another bowl.

Add the mini chocolate chips to the batter.

Bake the muffins for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.

Now I can drink my coffee and eat it too.
