1 3/4 cups
instant coffee powder
Good coffee flavor, but not very sweet despite the fact that I increased the brown sugar in them to 1/2 cup. Due to previous comments about dryness, I increased the milk to 1 cup and mine seemed sufficiently moist. This recipe easily made a dozen for me. I doubled the topping ingredients per another reviewer's suggestion and was glad I did. However, next time I'll omit the pecans from the topping. They became very "roasted" and had a burnt flavor and appearance which greatly detracted from the muffins. I'll just sprinkle the muffins with 1/4 cup brown sugar to give them a shiny appearance.
These muffins tasted great but were really dry! Almost like a cookie dough consistancy. But my muffin customers enjoyed dunking them in their coffee and ask for more. Thanks!
Everyone enjoyed these and were surprised at the unique blend of flavors.
They didn't *look* as pretty as I would have liked though. Next time, I will play with the leavening agents to see if I can get them to rise higher. Also, there wasn't enough topping to top them generously. I would probably double the topping.
Thanks for a great recipe, Julie!
My family LOVED these muffins. I made them for a friend and had to make two batches because we ate too many. The coffee taste really comes through - they taste like an English Toffee Cappaccino! -- J. Jackson
Loved them! Wonderful, rich, deep coffee flavor. A bit crumbly, I'm going to try for a bit moister next time. WILL be making these again!
The taste is very good, but they could be a little sweeter. Very easy to make. The muffins were moist the first day, but were dry by the second, even in a tight container. They're not real pretty, but as a guy, I don't care. This recipe is great for people who love the smell of coffee brewing but hate to drink it.
I thought these were good. I enjoy the flavor and because they're not so sweet I don't have the desire devour all at one time. I can have my morning coffee by eating a muffin, gotta like that!!!
My family did not care for these muffins. They are not sweet and have a VERY strong coffee flavor. (They only have 1/3 cup brown sugar and the topping doesn't make them sweet.)
