Coffee muffins recipe

I love coffee and I can’t get enough of it! Which would make sense with all the coffee posts and recipes that I have on the blog! I have my dedicated coffee club posts and then I have several coffee recipes as well. This however is a post for these amazing coffee muffins recipe!

These easy coffee muffins will have you smiling ear to ear, I made them and ate about 4 in one day; they’re that good! I’ve seen a few recipes online but I find they’re a little complicated or you’re having to do some weird stuff with the coffee and no one has the time for that, which is why this is an easy coffee muffins recipe.

Now I will point out that if you’re making these coffee muffins you don’t need posh and fancy muffin cases. However, I just love them and if I know I’m taking them to work I love to show off a little bit. You can however use silicone cupcake cases which are so much better for the environment so take a look at them!

You will see for this coffee muffin recipe I have started to switch to silicone muffin baking trays as they’re better for the environment and need replacing much less! I’ll link them in my equipment section below but totally check them out if you’re looking for a more eco-conscious kitchen!

Baking With Coffee

I love baking with coffee, the only issue is just because coffee is dark it doesn’t mean that your bake is going to be dark. You can see from these coffee muffins that they don’t turn out super dark but they still taste 100% like coffee so it’s something to keep in mind.

Coffee however is one of my favourite flavours to bake with. You can use flavoured coffee to give your bakes a different taste and all coffee drinkers will know that coffee has different strengths so depending on how strong you want these coffee muffins or any coffee bake you make, depends on what coffee you use.

If you follow the recipes on my blog you’ll know that one of the most popular coffee recipes I have on my blog is this yummy Baked Coffee Doughnuts Recipe. I’ve heard so many people say about how yummy they are so you should check them out once you’ve made these coffee muffins.
