Coffee and Salted Caramel Cupcakes

Coffee and Salted Caramel Cupcakes

These coffee and salted caramel cupcakes were born because I couldn’t decide between baking salted caramel cupcakes or coffee and walnut cakes. So I decided I didn’t have to choose!
I like the coffee flavour to be strong. Hence the 3 teaspoons! If you prefer a more mellow flavour just add a little less – it’s all zen!
