This Coffee Cake Recipe Is In My Top 3 Ultimate Favourites - And For Good Reason
It’s fair to say I’m a coffee lover. Some might even say an addict. It might even be true that I couldn’t taste if the cake had enough coffee flavour when making it earlier because I was drinking a coffee at the same time… But all those years of drinking coffee comes in handy as I do make a damn good coffee cake. One of the hardest parts about making this cake is balancing the coffee flavour. Coffee drinkers definitely have this down to a T! But needless to say, anyone can make and enjoy this cake. I’ve even had people who don’t like coffee tell me that they enjoyed this cake. Plus, a slice of this cake goes lovely with a good cup of tea too. This easy recipe makes a light, fluffy cake with a moist airy texture and a smooth silky buttercream. All with a bold taste of coffee. Of course, you can always add less coffee to the mixture if you’d like a more subtle flavour.
Which Coffee Should You Use?
Add Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans For That Finishing Touch
When decorating this cake, I kept it simple on fairly simple and flat on top. Then I used a piping bag to create a swirl effect with the buttercream in the middle of the cake. Whenever making this cake I just have to add chocolate covered coffee beans on top. It’s like a compulsion! But these are divine and are a perfect pair with this cake – get them at Waitrose in the baking aisle. You can also add a sprinkling of cocoa powder on top if you like a hint of chocolate in your coffee cake. Or turn it into a mocha cake by replacing 30g of flour with cocoa powder. Chocolate and coffee, they are a match made in heaven! Want to know how to get ultra silky-smooth buttercream? Check out this page!
