Recipe by: PezMaster Uploaded by Drimble Wedge



  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs (separated)
  • 1/4 cup strong coffee (or a shot of espresso)
  • 1 TBsp Kahlua
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt (to stiffen egg whites)
  • extra Kahlua (yessssss)

- Oven to 350F

- Mix flour, baking powder, and salt, then set aside

- Beat the egg yolks with coffee and Kahlua until really thick and creamy. Slowly at 1/2 cup of the sugar, beating continually. Set aside.

- Beat the egg whites with salt until they start to form moist peaks and gradually beat in the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar. Continue beating until the eggs whites are stiff but not dry. Stir 3 tablespoons of the whites into the yolk mixture. Slowly fold dry ingredients into mixture then, when everything has been absorbed, gently fold in the remaining whites.

- Spoon the batter into cupcake tins - I baked for about 20, but they came out a little dry, so I'd start testing at 15. Just take them out of the oven when your tester comes out clean.

Mascarpone Cream[edit]

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1 TBsp Kahlua
  • 1 cup mascarpone
  • More Kahlua
  • Grated dark or semi-sweet chocolate (to make it look pretty)

- Beat egg yolks with sugar until they are light and fluffy. Beat in Kahlua. Slowly add mascarpone, beating continually.

- Before adding cream to the cupcake, I really drizzled the cooled cupcakes with a lot of Kahlua. Mmmmm. Then pile on the cream, drizzle with more Kahlua, and sprinkle the chocolate.
