    Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Line two cupcake trays with cupcake cases.

    Using either an electric mixer or mixing bowl and whisk, beat the butter and sugars together until pale and fluffy, then whisk in the coffee extract and coffee.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 200g Butter (unsalted) softened
    • 100g Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 100g Unrefined light muscovado sugar
    • 1tsp Coffee extract
    • 2 tbsp Coffee strong

    • 4 Egg(s) (free range) medium, lightly beaten

    Add the remaining flour and then using either a piping bag or ice-cream scoop, divide the batter between the cupcake cases and place in the oven for 20 minutes, or until lightly golden and firm to the touch. Leave the cakes to cool a little on a wire rack.

    • 200g Self-raising white flour

    To make the syrup, place the golden caster sugar in a pan with the strong coffee. Simmer for a few minutes until dissolved, then take off the heat and set aside to cool. Once cool stir in 1tsp of coffee extract.

    • 50g Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 4 tbsp Coffee strong
