Gourmet Coffee

So, you like coffee and you think to yourself, “What else can I do with the black gold?” The best alternative option for coffee is alcoholic coffee drinks, the “special coffee” drinks like café au lait or even coffee cake. Coffee cake is good when real coffee is added as it blends the sweetness of cake with the dynamic roast of coffee. Chocolate covered coffee beans are also addictive and my, my, my are they fantastic!

I have assembled a quick list of coffee recipes for you to try at home. If there are any coffee delights you have tried please contact me at editor@coffeebeanqueen.com. Id be happy to add them and even happier to try them, plus well give you your own byline and if you invent something maybe even name it after you. Oh, imagine the caffeine-coated fame and glory.

Mays Coffee Cake Recipe

It doesnt have to have coffee in it, but it is more of an accompaniment to the real deal. Mays Coffee Cake is to die for and you can replace the walnuts for cherries, blueberries, almonds or chocolate and top with brown sugar blended with cinnamon and butter.

Beat the butter, sugar and egg. Blend in the flour, salt, baking powder, milk and pudding mix. Ensure the soon to be coffee cake has an even consistency. Stir in walnuts and bake in a loaf tin at 375° F for 20-25 minutes. Cool, pick-off cat hair and eat. Drink with your favorite coffee roast, like Seattles Best!

Makes one loaf or 12 muffins.
