Cappuccino Muffins

My district has an all-day inservice tomorrow, and they have always provided us with a lunch for these types of things. However, our darling governor has recently set in motion some legislature which prohibits any educational state funding to be used to feed the faculty. Thanks, Johnny boy. You're swell.

So, our department has decided to pull together for a little pot-luck action. I signed up to bring Giada's Creamy Orzo (YUM!) and a couple of different kinds of muffins.

When going through my GR for ideas, I came across this one from The Food Duo. And... it's a recipe from William Shatner! Go figure!

(I haven't eaten them yet, so I can't give a verdict... but they sure as hell look and smell yummy!)


  • 2 cups flour

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400° and grease muffin tins or line with paper baking cups.

Sift all dry ingredients together into a bowl and make a well in the center of the mixture.

Beat the egg together with the milk and the melted butter. Add the vanilla.

Add to the dry ingredients along with the chocolate chips and mix until just moistened.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full.

Bake until just done, approximately 20 minutes.
