  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/420F/Gas mark 7 Mix Together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the butter, coffee and sugar to get a creamy paste, then add the egg yolks and mix well.

  3. Pour the mixture into 12 greased muffin moulds. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the muffins are well risen but still soft to the touch. These muffins must be really moist so dont overcook them, and dont forget that they will solidify somewhat when cooling.
