Coffee muffins

Anyone have a simple but really nice recipe? I tried to make them but they didn't taste much of 'coffee' would it be better to use a coffee essence than instant coffee? or both? any suggestions would be great.

yep either a really strong short black or coffee essence. I used to make a coffee cake and used the black coffee in the cake and then the essence in the icing.

A question ess , is it something you buy already made up by the coffee area, or is it an essence found by the vanilla ess..or is it something you make up using 1 tsp instant coffee to 1 tablespoon of boiling water?

winnie15, coffee essence is a bought product, although no doubt it could be made at home but where a recipe states coffee essence it usually means the bought product.
If you are looking for coffee essence at the supermarket, look for Bushells Coffee & Chicory Essence which can be found with the other coffees and/or in the baking aisle.

If you have a Rawleigh dealer nearby he/she could also get their brand of coffee essence for you - have a look at:-

Hope that helps. :-))
