These cute little cappuccino brownies are not only pretty, but are just the perfect afternoon pick-me up that you can serve as occasion demands. The frosting alone is so delicious—I may have eaten some of it with a spoon. But you’ll never know.

Preheat oven to 160°C. Butter 10 to 12 mini coffee cups or tea cups. Alternatively, butter a 20 × 30cm baking tin and set aside.
Place sugar, coffee, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla and butter into the Thermomix bowl and chop 10 sec/speed 8.
Scrape down sides of bowl and melt 5 min/90°C/speed 2. (The mixture will be grainy.)
Add flour and eggs, blend 20 sec/speed 6.
Divide between buttered cups, not filling past the ¾-full point.
Place all cups onto a tray and bake 10–15 minutes until just set in centre; still wobbly is preferable.Allow to cool completely before frosting.
To make ganache, place white chocolate and cream into the clean and dry Thermomix bowl and melt 6 min/50°C/speed 1. Pour into a glass bowl and refrigerate until completely set.
Scrape out into the Thermomix bowl and whip 20-40 sec/speed 4 until aerated. Pipe or spread onto the top of brownies and dust generously with either ground coffee or cinnamon. Decorate with either a roasted coffee bean or better still a chocolate coated coffee bean!
