Number of serving: 15

1)Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes:

1 cup (200 g) flour

1 cup (240 g) sugar

1 egg

2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons vanilla sugar

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup olive oil

1 cup (250 ml) strong coffee

2)The chocolate orange glaze:

170 g (6 ounces) good dark chocolate

170 ml (3/4 cup) heavy cream

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon cointreau

1 teaspoonvanilla extract


  • 1)Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes:
    Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add in the olive oil and coffee. Give it a light stir to combine everything. Then add the egg and mix until everything is combined. Don't over mix. Fill the cupcake papers 3/4 full and bake them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let them cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing them and placing them on a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 2)The chocolate orange glaze:
    Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place into a heat proof bowl. Heat the cream and the honey in a sauce pan till a gentle simmer. Pour the hot cream slowly and carefully onto the chopped chocolate. Let it sit for about a minute. Gently stir the mixture starting from the center in small circles until everything comes together. Add the cointreau and the vanilla. Mix until you have a smooth and shiny glaze. Let the glaze cool a while before pouring on the cupcakes. If your cupcakes have a high dome then you can easily dip the cupakes in the glaze, works just as well.
