Cof·fee cake noun \ˈkȯ-fē kāk\1. A class of cakes eaten alongside coffee for breakfast, during a coffee break or offered to guests as a gesture of hospitality on or around a coffee table. A coffee cake does not necessarily contain coffee. 2. Coffee cakes are typically single layer cakes that may be square, rectangular or ring shaped; flavoured with spices, nuts, fruits and seeds. 3. Coffee cakes sometimes have a crumbly or crumb topping called streusel and/or a light glaze made of icing sugar.
Coffee cakes are fashionably back!
Pass around a streusel-topped coffee cake and delight in your guests bewilderment – what, no coffee in coffee cake? – and bring it home.
The Midnight Baker’s coffee cakes are made from fresh/dried fruits and nuts, with no artificial flavourings. My homemade unsweetened applesauce is made fresh on the day of cake baking, and I replace portions of the unsalted continental butter content with this (if you prefer, you can also request for a heart-healthier margarine that I use in my baking). Kindly note that healthier bakes like the ones I do with wheat germ, and zucchinis or carrots tend to have a heavier crumb than the cakes you may be used to, but are still as tasty!
It’s all good.
Choose delectable delights from:
Orange + Almond
Made from whole oranges and almond meal, this naturally fragrant cake makes you feel that you have an entire orange orchard in one bite.
Fresh Lime + Coconut Milk
Apple + Walnut
Rustic in its appeal, nutmeg enhances the sweet-tart flavours of grated Granny Smith apples and walnuts add a lovely crunch. Think Waldorf salad in a wholesome slice!
Now how do you top that (pun intended)?
Do try my streusel topping (cinnamon streusel, nut streusel, or cinnamon oatmeal streusel) or if simplicity is your middle name, then a glacé drizzle will do just fine.
