Now this is a cupcake with a difference. A doughnut placed in the bottom of a cupcake liner with coffee cupcake batter completely covering it, and, when the coffee and doughnut cupcake comes out of the oven – hey presto! Things have taken a turnabout; the doughnut has floated to the top of the batter. With a frosting of swirled whipped cream, this becomes a decadent coffee doughnut cupcake, which is so delicious, you can’t settle for gobbling only one of them, you just have to have another, or even more.

Rich, dark and creamy are three great words to describe these Thin Mint cupcakes. Yes, you read that right: Thin Mint, like the Girl Scout Cookies.

Once they are topped with dark chocolate mint ganache and mint cream cheese frosting, they become completely irresistable.

Normally when you think of coffee cake, simple cinnamon layered cakes come to mind. These cupcakes will blow those expectations out of the water, as they contain both coffee and chocolate — both in the batter and in the frosting (well, the coffee part anyway.) The coffee’d batter starts with the addition of espresso powder and brewed hot coffee, plus dark cocoa and a little sour cream, among other ingredients. Adding a little “zing” is the vanilla bean latte swiss meringue buttercream frosting.
