With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time to whip up a delightful dessert that combines the warmth of fall flavours with the comforting embrace of a good cup of joe. Get ready to tantalize your taste buds with our Coffee-Flavoured Pumpkin Spice Cake.
Why Coffee and Pumpkin Spice?
Pumpkin spice is a quintessential flavour of autumn, and coffee? Well, it's the perfect companion to any dessert. When combined, they create a harmonious blend of spicy and aromatic goodness that's simply irresistible.
Ingredients You'll Need:
- 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp pumpkin spice mix
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup strong coffee (we recommend FireBean Coffee Roasters' aromatic blend!)
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- Whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice for garnish
Steps to Perfection:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a round cake pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin spice mix. Set it aside.
In a separate bowl, cream the softened butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, beating well.
Mix in the strong coffee and pumpkin puree.
Gradually add the dry ingredients, alternating with buttermilk. Mix until just combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
Allow the cake to cool, then garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice.
This Coffee-Flavoured Pumpkin Spice Cake is a true Thanksgiving treat, and if you want to take it to the next level, pair it with a steaming cup of Firebean Coffee Roasters' freshly brewed coffee. Your taste buds will thank you for this delightful combination of flavours.
