2/3cupwhole or 2% milk
1cupof granulated sugar
1 1/4cupsof all-purpose flour
1cupof chocolate chips
1tablespoonof fresh coffee
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cupcake pan with 12 cupcake liners. You can also double the recipe to make a 9 x 13 pan cake or 24 cupcakes.
Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Put aside for later.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
Next add the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing until smooth. Pour batter into cupcake liners, do not fill more than halfway. You may have extra mix left over.
Bake in the preheated oven for 23-27 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out nearly all the way clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Makes about 12 cupcakes.
For the ganache: put the heavy cream, chocolate chips, and coffee in a microwavable bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time until melted. Dip the top of each cupcake in the ganache.
