My friend requested me to make some cupcakes with hardly any time to do anything fancy. She did not want icing as it was a gathering of older women and she did not want chocolate as many older people do not like chocolate so much. Plus she wanted something nice and not very ordinary. I was thinking of some fruit but did not have any on hand. Luckily I had walnuts and so I thought of making Walnut Cupcakes with coffee flavour. Flavours that adults would like and fill al my friend's criteria for her request. 

So here is a simple and quick fool proof recipe for good cupcakes. 


150 gms butter
1 1/2 cup flour
1  cup sugar
2 tblsp instant coffee powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup milk 
1 tblsp lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
some walnuts halves to decorate

Melt and cool butter. Add lemon juice to the milk and stir. Add warm water to the coffee and stir to dissolve. Add sugar to the melted and cooled butter and stir to dissolve. Add half the milk and dissolved coffee and mix well. Add the flour and baking powder and baking soda and mix well. Add rest of the milk and beat well for 2 to 4 minutes. 
Drop a spoonful of the cake batter into greased cupcake moulds and tap the mould to spread the batter evenly. Press one half walnut in each cupcake. I got 17 cupcakes. If you fill a little carefully you should get 18. 

Bake in hot oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes or till done.

The delicious Walnut Coffee cupcakes are ready to serve. 

This is my 5th recipe in baked category.
