Ingredients
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup brewed coffee
1-1/2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup prepared white frosting
24 chocolate-covered coffee beans
Directions
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 cups in standard-size muffin pan with cupcake liners. In a bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, allspice, cinnamon and salt.
2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl about 2 minutes or until light colored and smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. On low speed, add flour mixture, alternating with brewed coffee. Divide batter among prepared liners, 1/3 cup in each.
3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. Let cupcakes cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes. Remove from pan to rack and cool completely.
4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine instant coffee, vanilla and 1 teaspoon warm water. Stir until coffee is dissolved. Stir in white frosting until blended and no dark streaks remain. Spread 1 heaping tablespoon over each cupcake. Decorate tops with coffee beans.
