How to Make Cappuccino Muffins

These muffins are great for breakfast or as a dessert.


  • 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups each of granulated and packed sugar
  • 3/4 cups sifted cocoa
  • 2 tsp. each of baking powder and baking soda
  • 1 tsp each of cinnamon and salt
  • 3/4 cups of butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of strong black coffee
  • 2 eggs


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon


Heat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together flour, the granulated sugar, the packed sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. With a pastry blender or 2 knives cut the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.

In a separate container, mix together coffee and eggs. Add this into the first mixture. Stir until the combined mixture is moist (batter will be lumpy).

Divide this into 20 equal muffin cups (paper lined cups are best)

For topping, mix sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle this over the muffins before baking.

Bake for 15-20 minutes. To test, insert a toothpick, if it comes out clean it’s done.

Let them cool for 10 minutes in a pan or wire rack

How to make Sweet Rice – Siernee

This is an old rice recipe. I have never seen anyone make Siernee besides my close family. It is very exotic and I do not know of the origin, but it appears to be Arabic. Just make it and you will love it.


  • 1 lb rice flour
  • 1/2 lb raisins
  • 1/4lb cherry (not the fresh kind, you will find this in supermarkets bottled).
  • 1/4lb nuts chopped
  • 2/3 tin condensed milk
  • 1 tin evaporated milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 lb butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence


In a large bowl combine both milk, water, vanilla, raisins and chopped cherries. Mix well until condensed milk dissolves.

Add rice flour to a hot pan and reduce heat to low medium. Turn rice constantly until it begins to brown.

When flour is light brown, add liquid mixture and continue to turn until all liquid is absorbed.

Remove from heat and let cool. Add nuts and serve.

This can also be done with flour but the taste is not the same. The rice version is far better.
