Coffee Cake

Postby Shadowgirlau » Sun Jun 26, 2011 7:06 pm

Okay Ladies,

I am on the hunt for a delicious coffee cake with a to die for filling. Now my question to all you cooks and bakers out there is - does anyone have a good coffee cake recipe? nice crumb and moist?

Thank you in advance (see how confident I am that someone must have a nice recipe to share) :D

Kathleen I've previously made a nice coffee layered cake, basically coffee sponge with chocolate mousse filling. It was fiddly with the mousse, but oh so good... I'm at work at the moment but will have a hunt for the recipe when I get home in a couple of days.

Thank you Jo will look forward to seeing it posted once your home.

I made a variation of a cake I usually make yesterday - it is a chocolate cake which I have turned into a mocha cake by pricking all over the cake when I took it out of the oven then poured over the coffee syrup I had made while it was cooking and left it to cool in the tins. Once cold I removed from tins and have filled between the two cakes with a mocha filling. Left this to set over night as I was not real happy with the filling. Tasted okay but wasn't smooth enough for my likes. Will ice the cake this morning then comes the taste test. I am hoping it will be a dessert style of cake. Just playing around you understand :lol:

Thank you, I think it turned out pretty good myself as do those who tried it. Didn't last the weekend so that also says something I guess. Because I had decided to add a coffee syrup to the cake while it was cooling I decreased the amount of liquid in the recipe (so it didn't turn out too soggy) and was pleasantly surprised when it worked out okay. Was nice an moist with out being soggy (more like a fudge or mud cake) and the mocha filling was great. Here again I decreased the amount of sugar in the filling because I decided that the icing that covered the whole cake would be sweet enough and luckily it was.
Don't you just love it when your experiments turn out okay? :lol:

Jo I have umpteen dozen cook books stashed away and am so looking forward to the day when we are in our house and I can unpack them. (along with all my collectibles and most importantly my Christmas decorations)
Will be like Christmas when I get to unpack them as I am sure I can't remember what everything looks like :D

Think I will make something nice like an orange cake using a whole orange for something different next?
