Mocha-Caramel Cappuccino Cupcakes
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
teaspoons baking soda
teaspoon baking powder
cup hot water
cup unsweetened baking cocoa
teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder or granules
cups granulated sugar
cup whipping cream
tablespoons powdered sugar
teaspoon instant espresso coffee powder or granules
tablespoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips
tablespoons caramel topping
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Place jumbo paper baking cup in each of 6 jumbo muffin cups, grease bottoms and sides of muffin cups with shortening and lightly flour, or spray with baking spray with flour.
In medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder; set aside. In small bowl, mix hot water, cocoa and 4 teaspoons coffee powder until dissolved; set aside.
In large bowl, beat shortening with electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds. Gradually add granulated sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping bowl occasionally. Beat 2 minutes longer. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture, about one-third at a time, and cocoa mixture, about half at a time, beating just until blended.
Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each with about 1/2 cup batter or until two-thirds full.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan; place on cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
In small deep bowl, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar and 3/4 teaspoon coffee powder with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
To serve, place each cupcake in a coffee cup, if desired. Top each with about 3 tablespoons whipped cream; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon chocolate chips and drizzle with 1 teaspoon caramel topping.
For a quick and easy topping, use whipped topping from an aerosol can.
