There is more than one way to make coffee. For example, baking coffee cakes can be a great way to use those coffee beans for good. Let’s see how to do it.
Coffee beans can be used not only for making beverages. In fact, there can be many various options for infusing coffee into various recipes. Desserts, for one, are the most common food that can have your favorite coffee taste. Cakes made with coffee beans can steal the show if they are made right. Fortunately for you, we have found the best recipes for cakes with coffee beans available to men. They are delicious, they smell like your favorite cup of coffee, and they are easy to make. Let’s go right to it.
It’s a delicious, highly caffeinated, espresso-tasting-like, sugary cake, and we can’t wait for you to try it. It may not be the healthiest cake, though. But we can guarantee it is worth baking it at least once in a long while. We use coffee beans for the cake itself and the frosting to double the coffee taste for this cake. Here’s what you need for it.
- 1,5 cups of sugar ( you may add a bit more if you want, however, a lesser amount of sugar leaves more room for coffee flavors)
- 4 warm eggs
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- Vanilla extract
- 3-4 tsp baking powder
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup of cocoa powder
- A good pinch of salt
- a cup of vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups warm milk
- 1 1/2 black coffee ( you may also add some coffee liqueur if you want)
- 2 cups of soft, warm butter
- vanilla extract (to your liking)
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp of high-fat content warm milk ( you can add cream instead)
- And, last but not least, 3 coffee shots
You can also use sprinkles of coffee beans for decoration.
Combine all your dry ingredients. Mix them well. Let them just sit there while we move on to the wet ingredients. Start with the eggs. Whip them with sugar, but don’t crack all of them at once. Start adding eggs one after another. Next, once your eggs are white and fluffy, add the coffee. Remember, everything at this point has to be warm. Hot coffee will cook your eggs.

Overall, you need to have high-quality coffee for cooking a delicious coffee-infused cake. So don’t neglect the role of espresso in this receipt. Once the coffee is well incorporated, mix your eggs with dry ingredients. Pour the batter into a cake tin and put it in the oven for about 40 minutes. You should have at least three equal layers with this amount of batter.
Once your cake is baked and cooled, we move to the frosting. For the frosting, you just need to whisk all your ingredients together. Then cut the cake into layers and generously add your frosting to all three layers. Better use a small spatula and start your way from the center. Don’t forget the sides of your cake! Once you are done, put it in the freezer for at least a few hours or overnight. You can use chocolate glaze, coffee beans, or sprinkles as the decoration. Your super caffeine espresso infused cake is done! Enjoy!
Espresso mug cake
We have a simpler receipt for those who don’t like spending their entire morning in the kitchen. It will literally take you up to 20 minutes to make this very delicious and very caffeinated cake. Yes, we are talking about the old-time classic, a mug cake. This time it is going to be with a strong coffee flavor. Such a cake can be a great addition to your morning coffee, or it can even replace your regular morning americano for this one time. What’s great about it, you can make it vegan if you’d like. No eggs or dairy required. Let’s see what we need here.
- 1/4 cup flour
- baking powder (on the tip of your spoon)
- a pinch of salt
- 1-3 tsp cocoa powder
- 1-2 tsp sugar (depends on how sweet you want it)
- 2 tsp oil (vegetable or coconut oil)
- 1 tsp espresso powder or very finely ground coffee beans
- 5 tsp milk (regular or any plant-based milk. You can also replace it with coffee to enhance the flavor)
- chocolate chips
As usual, mix your dry ingredients first and add all the liquids into the same bowl. Mix until everything is smooth and silky, with no clumps. Oil your mug before pouring over your batter. You may sprinkle some sugar on top to create caramelization. Put it in the microwave for at least a minute and a half (it depends on your microwave and its power). Take it out carefully. Enjoy!
