Catso, Svegliati Muffins


Made with espresso, chocolate, and marscapone, these muffins will wake you the f*ck up….but in Italian so it sounds nicer.


  • 1 (8 oz.) package mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup finely ground espresso beans
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I like a lot of chocolate chips)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Beat mascarpone cheese and butter together until fluffy. Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla.
  • Combine the flour, espresso, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into wet mixture until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Spoon batter into 12 prepared lined muffin cups.  Filling them until they are almost full. I filled mine up all the way and had no problems with overflowing. They made a nice full muffin top.

Bake for about 20 min or until the top is golden brown.
