Mocha Muffins ~咖啡满芬


Today I'm sharing with you a two flavoured muffin and undoubtedly coffee and chocolate is a perfect match.   To give more oomph to these muffins I added in some chocolate bits and these mufins are best served on the day of baking.

Chocolate chip raisin butter cupcake ~ 巧克力葡萄干牛油蛋糕

I tweaked the Marble Butter Cake recipe to make these delicious cupcakes for breakfast and there were some leftovers for tea as well.  I managed to get 17 cupcakes from the recipe and was very pleased that there were no cracks on them after being baked.   My family members were equally pleased as the cupcakes weren't overly sweet as I had reduced the amount of sugar from the recipe.
