·     1 teaspoon baking powder

·     ½ teaspoon (0.5 teaspoons) baking soda

·     ¼ teaspoon (0.25 teaspoon) salt

·     ½ cup (113.5 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature

·     ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar

·     ½ cup (110 g) light brown sugar

·     1 egg, at room temperature

For the Espresso Buttercream Frosting:

·     1 cup (227 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature

·      cups (300 g) powdered sugar

·      teaspoons (1.5 teaspoons) vanilla extract

·      teaspoons (1.5 teaspoons) espresso powder

• Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a standard-size muffin tin with paper liners.

Make the Cupcakes: In a measuring cup, whisk the espresso powder into the brewed coffee until completely dissolved. Add the milk and vanilla extract; set aside.
• In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
• With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with two additions of the coffee mixture, mixing each until just combined. Using a rubber spatula, give the batter a final stir to ensure everything is incorporated.

Make the Frosting: In a small bowl, whisk the espresso powder into the vanilla until dissolved; set aside.
