Nescafe Chocolate Moist Cupcakes

this recipe is posted by a member of NCC mailing list (Love Liana) which is a courtesy of puan Rodziah, her friend in Kuala Lumpur. a lot of member already give it a compliment that make me want to try it also. so, here it is. i subtitute Nescafe with our (me & hubby) instant coffee but i still think it's not too subtle, maybe the coffee was covered by the chocolate taste. but it's a good cake and easy to make. next time i will add more coffee and pass the chocolate emulco.
