A simple bake for a simple Monday... earlier on I finally got the chance to taste my Donna Hay's cuppies that I baked yesterday and let me tell u something abt it.. not only is the cake rich.. the buttercream tastes yummilicious! I must admit that I had some probs pipping the buttercream at first as the texture of the buttercream was a little runny for my liking but once I piped it and placed it in my fridge to let it set.. it worked wonders.. so do gv that cuppies recipe a try cos to me.. it tastes equally as delish as the truffle cuppies...
Anyway heres another recipe fm Ibu Tio .. I wished these cookies tasted more of coffee than chocolate but if ur using like 50g of cocoa powder.. what do u expect?? hehehe.. next time i will add a tsp of coffee oil or maybe add another 1/2 tbsp of instant coffee to gv it a more coffee taste...
50g cocoa powder (I used KoKo Black fm Melbourne)
1/2 tbsp instant coffee (I used nescafe)
125g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat oven 150C
Sift flour, cocoa powder and instant coffee
Beat butter and icing sugar till soft... Add in sifted dry ingredients and continue to beat till well combined
Add in vanilla essence
Pipe batter onto baking tray.. sprinkle with cherry, raisins, almond nibs or icing sugar.. whatever u hv in ur pantry..
Bake for abt 15 to 20 mins (I baked mine for 12 mins)
