Is anyone else preparing to host family or friends for the upcoming holidays? Well I have a little recipe that my grandmother shared with me years ago and now I want to share it with you. It is super yummy and just as easy to make. This little coffee cake is the perfect combination of cinnamon flavor and moist cake. Both young and old will enjoy this delightful little cake any time of day. If you are not a traditional coffee lover and like something with a little bit of flavor to your caffeine kick, you may want to check out some private label cbd coffee products or have a browse in your local food stores, so you can find something that is a little bit different to add to the recipe. You can change it up each time for different people to cater to their tastes. It all depends on what you want to do and how you make it. Sometimes food needs a little twist to make it stand out.
Being a cafephile myself, I’m always looking for new ways to experiment with coffee. Because it turned out so well, this is one of my favorite recipes to date. I also buy coffee beans from Iron & Fire occasionally, since they have premium hand-roasted coffee beans, when I am lazy enough to roast them myself. I have a monthly subscription with them, so I don’t have to worry about having a packet of coffee on hand when I want to try something new. If interested, you could consider a coffee wholesaler nearby if you are into similar creativity or rather experiments with coffee beans at home.
We are all big coffee drinkers in our family and a generous slice of this cake is the perfect accompaniment to the coffee of your choice. At home, we like to brew our own coffee but we also use products like mushroom coffee all the time too. We roast our own beans and even like to use coffee scales to make sure that we get the best flavored coffee every single time.
Coffee scales definitely make a difference to the taste of our coffee, but knowing which scales to buy was quite overwhelming as there are so many different makes and models. Fortunately, we managed to find an online guide that broke down everything we needed to know about coffee scales – you can click here for the full list of some of the most popular coffee scales out there.
