Coffee-Break Muffins


This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Rhiani of Chocoholic Anonymous. I'd already made (and posted) this recipe, but there was never a doubt in my mind that I'd make them again (and again...) Moist, tender, redolent of coffee, these muffins smell amazing while they're baking and taste even better.

Dorie's muffin method for these is super easy. Mix the dry ingredients, mix the wet ingredients--strong coffee (I saved leftover coffee in the freezer at work for a few days), eggs, melted butter, vanilla, and combine. I added some chocolate chips for extra yumminess.

Doubling the recipe yielded 24 minis and 17 regular-sized muffins. Just enough for the people in the office to nab one to snack on with their morning joe. Since I made these during Ramadan, I saved mine for after I broke my fast and thoroughly enjoyed it. This recipe will be made again and again. Thanks, Rhiani, for a super pick! If you want the recipe, Rhiani will have it for you.

They look great. Chocolate chips would be so good in these - I should do that next time.

Valerie said...

I had already made these as well (glad to know I'm not the only one who sneaks ahead.) :D
Now after seeing everyone's photos, I wish I had made them this week. I love your mini muffins, they look perfect for coffee dunking!

With the chocolate, as you know, I could not keep my hands off of these babies! Hope your coworkers loved them, too.

Katrina said...

Love the minis. I made 12 regulars and only 4 minis. The minis just disappeared and I have no idea where they went. ;) Great minds with the added chocolate chips!

Tia said...

minis are so cute, especially beside big ones.
I made mine into coffee cake with chopped chocolate bars on top! Tia @ Buttercreambarbie

Is that the Mommy Muffin and her little ones? It needs a title. I know how good these are. This is one of those recipes, easy enough to throw together and enjoy, in a short time.

Yum, yum! I missed the chocolate in mine. Guess I'll have to make them again, right? ;)

Mary said...

I love the big muffin next to the tiny muffin. These are worth the wait.

Hi, Yes, I did see Nom Nom on the food truck race. It was intense. Those young people are inspiring.

So are your muffins here, I might add. They look awesome.

Three cheers for the number crunching egg cracker! LOL Keri

These are really good, aren't they? You are a generous co-worker, doubling the recipe when you aren't even eating the treat!

Thanks for baking along - I doubled the recipe so I could share as well. I'm glad you enjoyed them.

Mags said...

Muffins are my weakness...both eating them and collecting the recipes. These look delicious!

Beth said...

Those muffins look great. I can't wait to try them -- and I might add chocolate chips too!

Hanaâ said...

I've heard so many good things about these muffins, I think I'll have to try them too. Great idea to add choc chips! I'm not a coffee drinker so I might scale back on the coffee (or just use water + instant espresso).

Judy said...

These were great muffins, indeed! I like your idea of making different sized ones.

Kayte said...

We loved these, too! These will be a frequent guest at our house. Love your muffin wrappers...they make the muffins look extra special.
