Some of my blogging friends have been sharing their thoughts recently on “teatoxes” using the hasthtag – tea is for biccies. As much as I agree, I’m really more of a coffee girl and am definitely a cake girl (which I’m sure is why I like cycling these days as Sunday rides have obligatory cake stops to refuel).
So then it will come as no surprise to you that I have a recipe for you which combines both those things – coffee in cake, and I mean, why not?!
Earlier this month, I shared with you my thoughts on the Califia Farms Cold Brew and their Barista Blend Almondmilk and now I’ve created my own hashtag – #IfWeCanBakeIt – a spin off of the Borrow my Blender hashtag, #IfWeCanBlendIt to create this recipe which by all means I am not labelling as “healthy” or “guilt free” as I don’t associate those words with my food and especially not cake.
So without further ado, here is the recipe…
Coconut Coffee Cake with Califia Farms
Dairy Free || Vegan || Easy
3 1/2 cups spelt flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp group nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees celsius
Mix together the first 6 dry ingredients in a bowl and the 5 wet ingredients in a larger bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet while stirring gently until well mixed with no dry spots.
Pour the cake batter into the bundt mould (I used this silicon bundt mould from Amazon) and bake in the oven for 45 minutes.
Remove from the oven then gently upside down the mould onto a wire rack to allow the cake to cool.
While the cake cools, mix up the Cold Brew Drizzle (below) by whisking everything together in a bowl and then drizzle / pour / slather it on the cooled cake before slicing and serving with a side of… oh, Cold Brew mixed with Almondmilk and a dash of vanilla?!
Cold Brew Drizzle (optional)
1 scant cup of powdered sugar
1/4 cup (scant / 45-50ml) Califia Farms Cold Brew
1.5 tsp lemon / lime juice
3 drops of vanilla flavdrops
…not much else to say, eh?! Other than, give it a go and enjoy!
…what have you been baking recently?!
