Kocina De Coffee Cake

Kocina De Coffee Cake

When I started not to care about how pretty the way my cake looks, it gave me courage and enjoyment to continue baking. This is one coffee cake that seriously knocked me down.. because it was so good. I even don’t have coffee essence at home although I always include it on my list but I seem to forget it all the time. Then came one perfect boring day and I wanted something sweet, something different, something that will satisfy my craving. Guess what, why not make a coffee cake? I was hesitant at first because I only have the normal coffee granules in my cupboard but the experimental side of me invaded my imagination. 

Good thing I have a small jar of coffee granules in my cupboard. Years before, I used to be a coffee lover but for some reasons I suffered from fibrosystic disease so the doctor advised me not take coffee anymore. But the coffee addict inside me would sneak from time to time and when I am all alone I would enjoy a cup of hot coffee. Oh good gracious coffee, it makes me alive and wonderful. Perhaps coffee flavor in a cake would bring a different twist and I was right after all.

I don’t have chocolate coffee beans or nuts..I am supposed to have walnuts but you see sometimes a twist of palate would turn me nuts so I would eat almonds, pecan, walnuts when I am busy cooking in the kitchen. When I need them the most..theyre all gone. Good thing the ever dependable chocolate chips in a box is always there.


Oh, look at that, she is not pretty…I know ..I know..with such imperfect curves but I tell you this is such a magnificent cake. Its coffee, its sweet, its strong, the aroma is extra ordinary and yes.. again..its coffee.. a coffee cake. The moment I tasted it, I laughed, I giggled and I have this gigantic smile because I have made such imperfect shape of a cake but it is so natural and I would rather leave her that way..



I have had a slice,  go ahead, take yours.. I never thought coffee granules would be terrific in a cake. Every one in the family fell in love with the coffee cake. This is a serious situation..if there’s a will, theres a way…I am a coffee addict and its bad but I found a way..turn coffee into a cake and it’s just right..so right..
