  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners.
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate in the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. Blend the eggs and sugar with a mixer in a large bowl. Stir the cooled melted chocolate into the egg mixture. Add the vanilla extract and instant coffee. Sift in self-rising flour and stir until well combined. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 15 to 18 minutes.

Followed the directions, and the cupcakes came out very very dry. I would agree the flavor is quite bland and the texture was quite disappointing. I wouldn't call them cupcakes, they remind me m...

good texture but the flavour is a bit bland

I think these turn out great, but makes better brownies than cupcakes; as cupcakes, they are just too heavy.

I loved these cupcakes so much! I made them for a friend picnic and they were a hit! No leftovers!
