Coffee Coffee Cake

We’ve all likely had coffee cake, but none that actually contains any coffee. This simple cake is bursting with so much coffee flavor, you won’t even need to dunk it. This cake is infused with rich coffee flavor in three forms — freshly brewed coffee, instant espresso powder, and pure coffee extract. Just the wake up you need for brunch — but don't hesitate to serve this for dessert, too.

Preheat oven to 350°. Thoroughly coat a 10–15 cup Bundt pan with softened butter, then with flour.

For the cake, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a bowl.

Beat butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a bowl with a hand mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until combined.

Stir together coffee, espresso powder, and coffee extract, then stir into buttermilk. Alternately mix flour mixture and buttermilk mixture into creamed mixture (starting and ending with flour) just until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth top.

Bake cake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 4555 minutes. Let cake cool in pan on a rack 30 minutes before turning out to cool completely.

For the glaze, whisk together, powdered sugar, half-and-half, and vanilla; drizzle over cake, then sprinkle espresso beans on top.

  • Average: 5.00
  • Standardized Average: 5.00
    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 63.67. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 63.67) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
    2.5 is the most polarizing.
    Recipes with lower standard deviations in the ratings are better for people who don't want surprises. Higher standard deviations are good for adventurous cooks. There is no standard deviation for this recipe because it has fewer than 2 ratings so far.
This cake is flavorful, moist and easy to make. Will make again
