This easy recipe for cappuccino cupcakes starts with a vanilla cake batter, then I add loads of coffee directly into the batter. I love this cake recipe because it yields a light and tender cake. To frost these sweet treats, I made an equally delicious coffee buttercream, flavored with kahlua coffee liqueur. You’ll want this buttercream with every dessert! If you want to add extra coffee or kahlua flavor, try soaking the cupcakes with a bit of the liqueur using a pastry brush before you add the frosting. And I sprinkled a bit more instant coffee granules over the top as a finishing touch.
