Chocolate Cold Brew Cupcakes

Is it just me or is cold brew coffee all the rage right now? This week, I worked on developing a recipe for Kohana coffee for a contest they have going on. You can vote for my recipe here! Now you can drink your coffee and eat it too! There is cold brew in the cupcake AND the buttercream frosting. Kick up your caffeine intake and satisfy that sweet tooth with this treat.

Chocolate Cold Brew Cupcakes with Cold Brew Buttercream Frosting

Cupcake Ingredients: 

1/2 cup butter, softened (do not microwave to soften/melt)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs 
1/2 cup Kohana Cold Brew Concentrate 
1/2 cup milk
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 tbsp baking powder

Frosting Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened (do not microwave to soften/melt)
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar 
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
3 tbsp Kohana Cold Brew Concentrate

Cupcake Directions:

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350F
  • Line your cupcake pans 
  • Mix the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy 
  • Beat in each egg, one at a time
  • In a separate bowl, combine and mix the flour, cocoa, and baking powder
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture
  • Mix in the Kohana cold brew and milk
  • When combined, scoop the batter into your prepared cupcake pans 
  • Bake the cupcakes for 18 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and comes out clean

Now, you have to be patient. Ugh. 

Let the cupcakes completely cool before adding the frosting! 

Frosting Directions: 
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, vanilla, and cold brew until smooth and creamy 
  • Once combined, slowly mix in the powdered sugar until the frosting thickens
  • Apply to the cupcake however you choose! 

These cupcakes are dense and moist. You can definitely taste the coffee flavor! Comment below if you try the recipe. I would love to know if you enjoyed the recipe or have suggestions for improvements!
