mochacchino muffins

My Tuesdays with Dorie seems to have turned into Whenever with Dorie. I guess any day is really a good day with Dorie, so even though I made these Mochaccino Muffins a month ago, I’m happy to be thinking about them again right now. Fortified with ground coffee and coffee extract, if your cup of joe alone isn’t cutting it, give yourself an extra boost with one of these. I actually used instant coffee granules instead of ground coffee, even though Dorie says not to…I just dissolved it into the milk. Maybe I’m wrong, but I’m not sure that unsteeped ground coffee really packs much of a punch. The chocolate bits were a nice touch, and I added a little bit extra on top.

I had a friend who made these a couple of months ago warn me that her muffins were really dry. I don’t know if that was just a fluke, but I kept that in mind when I mixed my batter. It seemed so light and cake-like (some muffin batters are quite thick), that I decided backing the heat down to 375F might not be a bad idea. They came out nice and soft, and I really liked them a bit warm, despite Dorie’s recommendation that they be eaten at room temp.

  1. Extra chocolate chips on top, yes please. I also seem to be baking whenever.

    • i don’t know why, but writing the posts has become like getting teeth pulled! painful

      • I agree with you, I have been struggling with posting lately too but not enough to give up all together.

  2. I paused when I read Dorie’s no to instant coffee granules instead of ground coffee. Now you tried it and I want to use it next time. Never wrong with another extra coffee shot.
