TWD- Coffee Break Muffins and Party Cake!

Well, after a few birthdays, a week in Italy, a week recovering and getting kids in pre-school, I’m back to TWD! This week’s recipe was for Coffee Break Muffins. We don’t drink coffee, so I substituted cocoa powder for the espresso powder, and whole milk for the coffee. I also omitted the nutmeg. These muffins are SO good. They don’t require a stand mixer- just a large bowl and a glass measuring cup. They come together in about 5 minutes and take about 18 to bake. I halved the recipe and wished I made the whole thing!

My kids loved them, too. I’m a big fan of chocolate and cinnamon together. They’re moist and not too sweet- perfect for a fall breakfast!

Chocoholic Anonymous has the recipe (and a great blog)!

And I made a party cake for a 13th birthday!
