Star Trek legend William Shatner is apparently a man of many talents. Actor, recording artist, author, and baker!
Cookie Madness posts a recipe of Shatner's beloved cappuccino muffins. Remember, in the words of the Borg, Resistance is Futile! Surrender to the cupcake... yummy.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg (room temp)
- 1 cup milk (room temp)
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips or equivalent of other chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with flour-added cooking spray. For bigger muffins, spray 8 of the cups.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, espresso powder, cinnamon and salt.
In a medium bowl, whisk egg lightly. Whisk in milk, melted butter and vanilla extract. Make a well in center of dry ingredients and pour in milk mixture. Stir just until evenly blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
Divide batter among 12 or 8 greased muffin cups. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in center of muffin comes out clean.
Makes 8-12 muffins.
