    Beat butter and sugar, but the amount of butter is not listed in the recipe :) . Could you please tell us how much to use? Thanks =)

      Sorry seemed to have missed it out. For the cupcakes you will need 4 tablespoons of butter. The recipe has been altered now.
      Thanks for letting me know, Becky

    Hi Becky,

    Can you please specify/elaborate what is coffee milk? If it it to combine coffee n milk than what are the proportions?

      Hi Manisha,
      It’s just coffee flavoured milk. I used one I bought in the supermarket. But you could make your own by dissolving some sugar and instant coffee in some milk. As for the ratios I am not entirely certain, sorry.
      I hope that helps.
