Coffee Muffin Recipe

Coffee Muffins For Father's Day

The two most important and amazing men in my life (excluding my two precious sons!!) are my Dad and my husband/baby daddy Ian.  Father's Day is the time to honour their role in my life and the best way of doing so is through the medium of cake!

Both of them love coffee is after all a manly flavour!  So in honour of them both I have made my totally delicious Coffee Muffins.  They are the lightest muffins ever and the fudgy  icing is just a little taste of coffee heaven.  Here's the recipe in case you want to make some for the man in your life too!

  1. these look lovely Wendy...I love coffee cake but never make it as no-one else would eat it!

  2. Those coffee muffins were out of this world and I can assure you
    that your Dad thoroughly enjoyed the Fathers Day Muffins you
    presented him with - he was on cloud nine.

  3. whenever I see your coffee muffins I want some, I think I just need to make some & get over it....& maybe freeze some so I don't eat them all in one go! x

  4. Ohh those look delicious! Will most definitely give them a try!
