Today I decided to take a pretty literal take on My Grandma's coffee cakes, creating the coffee-ist coffee cake you ever did see. How? Well how about a Cappuccino Coffee Cake with coffee glaze? Yes, you heard that right!
This coffee glaze was just the easiest recipe I can remember, and I wanted to share it with you!
Seriously, all you need is some strong coffee and some powdered sugar.
I used about 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tbsp of strong coffee.
I made the coffee myself, some Nantucket Blend, pressed through my AeroPress, which is one of the simplest and coolest coffee makers I've ever seen. And you know I love simplicity in the kitchen!
To make the glaze I just put 2 TBSP of strong coffee (the equivalent of an espresso) in a small spouted bowl with the 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
Just whisk the two together, and voila!
Just pour on the glaze right before you serve the cake and get the biggest wake-me-up caffeine kick from this sweet breakfast!
Add a cup of coffee and your breakfast becomes a tongue-twister!
"This morning I had a cup of coffee with cappuccino coffee cake and coffee glaze!"
