TWD - Coffee Break Muffins

I love coffee.....can't start my day without it.  I had to give up my 3:00pm Starbucks addiction a couple of years ago because I could no longer get to sleep at 9:00pm!!  Coffee ice cream is my absolute favorite.  So why didn't I like these muffins??  I wanted to and I was really excited about making them, but I just thought they had a bitter taste.

I'm going to give them a second chance after I read all of the other baker's posts and see what creative things they did that would make them taste better.  

Thanks to Rhiani of Chocoholic Anonymous for hosting this week.  Check out her website for the recipe and check the blogroll to see what the other bakers did this week.


  1. aww, too bad you didn't like them better - I made mine into coffee cake topped with chopped coffee crisp chocolate bars. Tia @ Buttercreambarbie

  2. hmm, maybe try a less bitter coffee? i used a hazelnut vanilla coffee instead of a super strong coffee. you may love coffee, but bitter flavoring in desserts just ruins it. i hope that helps! they certainly look sweet ;)

  3. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy these as much as you hoped. I think Jeannette is probably on to something with the flavored coffee approach.

  4. Darn..bummer they didn't turn out like you hoped. I tried mine with chai tea and really liked them! I hope you'll try them again..maybe add some chocolate chips to them..that seems to make everything taste good!!
    Happy Baking!
