  • Preheat the oven to 350˚ F.
  • Put paper liners in your cupcake pans or you can use silicone, which ever ones you prefer.
  • In a bowl whisk together the hot brewed coffee and cocoa, until dissolved and set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In the bowl place the butter and sugars. Beat on medium-high speed of your mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in the eggs one at a time. Mix in the vanilla.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients in three additions alternating with the coffee-cocoa mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.
  • Mix each addition just until incorporated, being careful not to over mix.
  • Divide the batter between the prepared liners, filling each about two-thirds of the way full.
  • Bake about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool in the pans briefly, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
