Hi. I was intrigued by the muffin recipe and decided to take the time and look at the rest of your site. I usually just check the current post and then scoot on over and check out some others. I am glad I spent a little more time tonight. I want to try your chicken pot pie recipe. Except I am going to use turkey. btw I sent your blog to my daughter in law who is homeschooling in Missouri. My poor family... I wish they were in Texas but oh well. I will let you know how the potpie turns out and think I'll make the muffins too. Blessings.Sherry

Hi Kelli,

These muffins look sooooo good. I love to have a muffin for breakfast with my coffee. Thanks for the recipe.

Also, thank you for visiting my site today and remarking about my "Show and Tell" post. I am so proud of my Mom's ring. It makes it all the more special since she took it right off her finger that day and gave it to me.

I hope you are having a good day.

Judy said...

Hi Kelli,
Today I tried the cappuccino chocolate muffins. They are excellent. If I didn't know any better I would think they came from a good bakery. I made them in the extra big size muffin pan (it made six) and I added five more minutes onto the baking time. I shared one with my neighbor. She is my walking partner and I figured after I ate half of one that I would wear off the calories by walking, so it all came out even in the end. Thanks for a perfect muffin recipe that I will use again. We are going away for the weekend and I am taking them along to share with our host and hostess. I will be sure and tell them where I got the recipe.

Kelli said...

I'm so glad you liked the muffins, Judy! Good thinking to walk them off..hehee. Have a wonderful weekend away!

hello!

i'm completely in love with these muffins, though i find it necessary to add that i would add a splash more of milk (a little more than a cup) and a LARGE egg (at least 60-65g before cracking), which will ensure a very moist muffin that is soft. Also, i found that if i let the batter sit for a while as i make the topping the instant coffee would FINALLY melt (it took a while) and i could stir it in beautifully. Also, my chocolate chips sunk to the bottom (which i didn't like) so i didn't mix them into the batter, i just pressed them into the filled muffin cups and then sprinkled on the topping. also added a dash of cocoa powder to the top before baking and it added some oomph which was nice. :]

other than that, these were fabulous and perfect! :D i really enjoy making them! :) thanks!
