  2. To make the cake, cream together the butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, adding a little flour with each, followed by the vanilla extract and the coffee powder.

  3. Gently fold in the rest of the flour, followed by the chocolate chips. Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases and bake for 18–22 minutes or until springy to the touch. Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.

  4. While the cakes are cooling make the cappuccino topping. Mix the mascarpone cheese, caster sugar, vanilla extract and coffee powder until well blended.

  5. Spread or pipe on to cupcakes, using a piping bag with a 1cm plain nozzle. Sprinkle over the chocolate chips.
