I love coffee. I live in Norway so I’m not alone! Follow this link to find out that Norwegians imported half a percent of all the coffee produced in the world in 2010. They drink 5 cups per day on average and I can confirm that even when they come visit in the evening they rarely say no to a cup of coffee. Proper stuff from a coffee press though, not the instant granules. I first smiled a bit at this coffee madness but now I’m part of it.
These muffins contain coffee, so they are not suitable for children. They are, however, suitable for Norwegians as well as anybody else who likes coffee.
This recipe makes 12 muffins.
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp instant coffee
a little warm water to dissolve the coffee in
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup rapeseed oil
1/4 cup applesauce (or oil if you have no applesauce)
For decoration: 24 whole almonds
Preheat your oven to 200C/400F. Prepare a 12 muffin tray.
In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
In a smaller bowl mix applesauce, oil, milk, egg and coffee dissolved in a little water. Don’t use very hot water or your egg will cook.
Once mixed pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones and blend but don’t overmix. Some people say that stirring muffin dough 10 times is enough. I might stir a bit longer if I still see a lot of dry patches but not too long.
Pour into the muffin cups/tray or whatever you’re using. Decorate with almonds.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, check with a skewer.
