Coffee and Cream Muffins

This will be my last baking post for this year as I'll be going for a month vacation in December. We've been planning for this holiday a year ago and we are very excited about this. Let me give you some clues on our vacation destination. Its gonna be someplace where its going to be winter, about 8 hours behind KL and expensive. Can you guess? If I have the time I might just post some pictures of our holiday... :)

So here's my last bake off - Coffee & Cream Muffins .. perfect for winter with a cup of hot latté! The photos are quite blurry. Snapped these with my new tablet and I need to figure out how to get the settings right.

2 cups plain flour
3/4 cups sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp granulated coffee
Pinch of salt
100 ml milk
185 ml double cream
100 ml oil
2 eggs
light brown sugar
1. Heat oven to 200d C and line tray with cupcake cases.
2. Sift all dry ingredients together. Mix all wet ingredients and beat together until combine.
3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix till batter is lumpy.
4. Fill cupcakes 3/4 full and sprinkle brown sugar on top. 
5. Bake for 20-25 mins until done.
