icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif As soon as I got the new Paula Deen Holiday Baking magazine I knew that if I ever won this would be my recipe. I plan on trying it this weekend. Hope everyone likes the choice....I didn't realize how anxious I would be!! icon_redface.gificon_rolleyes.gif

Vanilla Coffee Cupcakes
Paula Deen

makes about 2 1/2 dz cupcakes

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup WHOLE milk
1/4 cup strong-brewed cold coffee
1 vanilla bean, scraped
Chocolate Ganache-recipe to follow
chocolate covered coffee beans for garnish ( I also thought that those coffee hershey kisses would be good for garnish that fiddlesticks seems to be the only one to have found!! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif )

Preheat oven to 350. Foil or paper liners are fine. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, combine milk and coffee. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, alternately with milk mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Stir in scraped vanilla bean.
Spoon batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans, and cool completely on wire racks. Spread chocolate ganache evenly over cupcakes. Garnish with chocolate covered coffee beans if desired.

Chocolate Ganache
Makes about 2 cups

8 1 oz squares of semisweet chocolate
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 Tablespoon light corn syrup

In a medium bowl, combine chocolate and cream. Microwave on high in 30 sec intervals, stirring between each, until chocolate is melted and smooth (about 2 minutes total). Stir in corn syrup. Use immediately.


I CAN'T wait to try this and am looking forward to everyone's responses! icon_lol.gif

PM me with a # between 1 and 1000. I'll let meemaw know what I've picked and then we'll announce the winner on 17th of Oct. Thanks for letting me be apart of this fabulous place! Happy baking! icon_biggrin.gif

Oooo! I need to go to Trader Joe's to get some vanilla beans or vanilla bean paste! I love chocolate and coffee together, and may actually have to jump in on this recipe and actually try it!

I think I might have to join the cupcake recipe bandwagon. These sound soooo good.

And, speaking of all the yummy kisses, can someone tell me where they've been able to find the pumpkin spice variety (my pregnant belly is dying to try them, lol). I have looked and looked and can't find them. TIA.

Try Target/ Walmart/walgreens. Those seem to be where we all find them the most ! Everyone seems to find the different flavors at different places in their area. Yep they sure taste good Mel ! Oh and when you open the bag it smells like you just went into starbucks ...

I would probably add a couple of tablespoons of finely ground coffee (not instant... espresso grind) to the dry ing. This looks lovely!

Thanks.

Forgot to tell ya that Paula says you can save the pod of the bean since you just use the scraped out seeds, put it in a container of granulated sugar to make vanilla flavored sugar.
