Mocha Cupcake

Yes...found the recipe.
Hhehehe..should have a better 'filing' system :)
I followed the recipe, but after step 8, the mixture seems very runny, so I added another 1/2 cup of flour. Wished I followed the recipe as it is, so that I would know how it will turn out.

Just want to share a story:
My daughter saw me pouring the coffee mixture into the batter. And she started asking questions like 'why you put coffee in there', 'you shouldn't put coffee, coffee is bitter'. Then she went to the fridge, took out the rose cordial(air sirap), and brought one whole glass to the mixer. And thank god I was th ere to stop her. When I asked 'what are you doing?', she replied 'you should put in this in(air sirap), it's more tasty than coffe'.I told her that today i am making coffee cake, she said 'yucks, not tasty'.
