Coffee Cake!

I have been on a baking craze lately. I got this recipe from this amazing blog.
So I made a slight mistake while make it but it still turned out good! I didnt have instant coffee so I used ground coffee. Just make sure if you do use ground to make one extra strong cup minus the grounds. :-)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup extra strong coffee or 3 tbsp. instant coffee
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsps. vanilla
For the icing I just used the cream cheese frosting I used for the red velvet cake here.

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
  2. Grease the pans you want to use.
  3. In large bowl mix sugar, flour, and salt.
  4. In a pot melt butter on medium-low heat.
  5. In the meantime prepare cup of coffee. Add the 3 tbsp. instant coffee to 1 cup boiling water.
  6. Once butter has melted add the cup of coffee.
  7. In small bowl mix buttermilk, eggs, baking soda, and vanilla.
  8. Pour the butter/coffee mixture into the flour mixture.
  9. Mix in egg mixture.
  10. Pour into pans.
  11. Bake for 20-25 minutes of until toothpick comes out clean from the center.
  12. Allow to cool then add the icing.

This cake has a strong coffee flavor so if you dont like coffee it might not be your thing, but if you do it definitely will be.
