If you are fond of both coffee and chocolate in pastries, it doesn’t have to be one or the other. You can have both in these mini-cakes of Delices and Gourmandises that combine the great taste of coffee with chocolate chips! A true gourmet sin which you should never say no to!

Here’s the all-star, easy-to-follow recipe of coffee mini cakes

For 12 mini cakes, you will need :
mini coffee cakes

  • 150g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 50g soft light brown sugar
  • 3 medium eggs, beaten
  • 3 tsp instant coffee
  • 2 tsp boiling water
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preparation :

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4.
  • Cream together the butter and both sugars until the mixture is light and creamy.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, one by one, mixing well between each addition and add to the butter mixture.
  • Sift the flour and a pinch of salt into the bowl and add to the espresso.
  • Dissolve the coffee in the boiling water, add to the mixture and mix to combine.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture
  • Add the chocolate chips.
  • After lining fairy cake cases, spoon the dough into them.
  • Bake on the middle shelf of your preheated oven for about 15 minutes until golden, well risen and a wooden skewer inserted into the middle of the cakes comes out clean. It’s better if you swap the trays after 12 mins.
  • Leave the cakes to rest in the tin for 2 minutes then ease out onto a wire cooling rack and leave until cold.
