Sharing is caring!

Mocha Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes are Eggless cupcakes with mocha flavours. This is frosted with Mocha chocolate ganache and makes a pretty party dessert!

Can’t really believe that yet another month passed by and I had managed to do the Bake a thon without much hassle. I had today’s post ready, based on M and I had planned on making something related to Mocha. While I read extensively on what actually makes a Mocha, it was interesting to note how exactly a term gets changed over time. Mocha now refers to anything instant coffee, topped with cocoa powder, or even the filter coffee where a hot steam of water is pressed over coffee and get that characteristic aroma and taste.

I enjoyed making this with instant coffee powder and filter coffee decoction as well. I had the filter coffee decoction mixed in the milk and used that to make the cupcakes. I must say these cupcakes were one of the bests that I have tasted, both in texture and taste. And I had frosted with Mocha Chocolate Coffee Ganache with candy sprinkles on top.

I have managed to complete an alphabet series minus one for I, and almost thought I should make it till Z. Maybe sometime I will do it.

I hope you enjoyed this series.
