I have a friend who wants a coffee flavoured cake and I was wondering what were some good recipes some people have used (and would like to share). TIA!
Do you want a "coffee cake" like with a brown sugar crumble on top, or a "cake" cake, flavored with coffee? If it is the latter, I would just add coffee extract to a vanilla cake recipe. Flavor your buttercream with it as well.
AHere's a good coffee cake with the crumble on top: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/cinnamon-streusel-buttermilk-coffee-cake-10000000523692/
Yes, a cake with coffee flavour cause I will be using fondant over. Thank yoU!
Try fromscratchsf's "A Better White Cake" recipe, and add in the coffee extract. I'm sure it will be delish! And some IMBC with coffee extract. :)
Instant espresso powder dissolved in a tiny bit of hot water works great as well. I usually do 2-3 tablespoons powder in a bout 1 teaspoon of boiling water.
Just made a brownie espresso delight for a dinner party with the girls and it was a HUGE success. Absolutely delicious. I found the recipe here on Daily Cuppa Coffee, where you'll also find a whole range of cake, cookie and pastry recipes to choose from. I've also tried their coffee brownie cake that I also loved very much so you could try that as well. :)
