Black Beauty Coffee Cake

Wow, it has been a strange month being trapped indoors... But I always try to make the best use with my opportunities, and "Bakers are Gunna BAKE" ;)

There are a few exciting things I cannot wait to share with you about my new Bakerlita recipe!!! AHHH... I actually can hardly even wait! 

Well, here it is! Last year, my husband and I went to Guatemala to see my father-in-law's beautiful orphanage called The James Project. 

 

I could spend this whole blog post on the COFFEE (read more info on Bakerlita's Black Beauty Organic Coffee), but we need to talk CAKE, and have a slice too! 

To start this Black Beauty Coffee Cake recipe out I needed to infuse that bold punch of rich coffee flavor right inside of a recipe I have not yet created with my Bakerlita Beauty Baking Mix... Oh and it just turned out much more magical than I can even explain to you, you will have to try it for your self! 

My Black Beauty Coffee Cake nocks Tiramisu out of the ratings for me... This cake is so rich, moist, chocolaty, decadent, bold, yet, it is so smooth, light, and airy making this combination of flavors and textures a slice of heaven you will never forget!

To top this cake off, a cake is not quite in it's dressed majestic state unless it has that perfectly shipped, fluffy buttercream frosting! I added one shot of my Bakerlita Black Beauty Organic Coffee and dissolved some Lakanto powdered sweetener to make a sweet coffee syrup, slowly poured this black sweet magic into my buttercream as it was whipping away... And WALLAH, we have a masterpiece!

Coffee and Cake anyone? Have it separately or infused in one, like my Black Beauty Coffee Cake... I warn you, I could not just have one slice ;)
