Decadent Almond Coffee Cupcakes with Kahlua Liqueur











Indulge in the rich flavors of our Almond Coffee Cupcakes infused with Kahlua Liqueur. Perfect for dessert lovers seeking a lacto-ovo vegetarian option, each bite promises a delightful crunch and a soothing coffee aroma, topped with a silky Kahlua drizzle.


Step 1: Preparing the Oven and Tray

Let's start our baking adventure by preheating the oven to a cozy 335°F, ensuring it reaches the perfect temperature to welcome our cupcakes. Use a light touch of cooking spray on your medium-size muffin pan (or a mini muffin pan if you prefer bite-sized delights) to ensure our lovely cupcakes can be easily released after their baking journey. This simple step sets the stage for a seamless experience.
Pro Tip: For a shinier finish, you can also line the cups with cupcake liners.

Step 2: Mixing the Ingredients

In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, sugar, almond meal, brewed coffee, melted butter, and egg whites. Embrace the aroma of coffee as you whisk these ingredients together, creating a smooth and consistent batter. This is where our cupcakes start to take shape, infused with the rich aroma of coffee and the sweetness of almond. Spoon this divine mixture into your prepared muffin pan. Each cavity should be filled with cheerful anticipation and our delightful batter.
Pro Tip: Make sure the coffee is cooled to room temperature to avoid cooking the eggs!

Step 3: Baking and Finishing Touches

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. The transformation from batter to baked splendor is a sight to behold. After baking, anoint each cupcake with a generous drizzle of Kahlua liqueur, allowing it to soak in and infuse the cupcakes with its distinctive flavor. Allow the cupcakes to cool on a wire rack before adorning them with chocolate icing or a dusting of powdered sugar. Whether served warm or stored for later enjoyment, these cupcakes promise a moment of indulgent bliss with every bite.
Pro Tip: Letting the cupcakes cool slightly before adding icing helps prevent it from melting.
