Mini Espresso Cakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

This is a coffee cake that actually tases like coffee thanks to espresso powder. Sour cream helps to liquify the espresso powder and pull out the intense coffee flavor. Sunny Anderson bakes the cakes until light and moist then top them off with creamy frosting.
