Cappuccinos pretty much make up a large part of my diet – I can go for days surviving on just coffee (I say so proudly!). And of course there’s the coffee cake – but the term is fairly loosely used to any “dry” cake that hasn’t been fancied up and is eaten during the afternoon tea or coffee time. I thought, why not specifically make a cake that implies there is in fact coffee in it and it is fancy enough to serve after a fancy dinner and well, it can also be had with another cup of coffee.
So I bring to you a cappuccino cake – which perhaps has similarities to a tiramisu, but it is in fact, proper cake in side. This cake has an entire cup of strong black espresso and thereafter, the layers are soaked in even more strong coffee. The sugars are low, but then there is an espresso frosting that more than makes up for it. This is a cappuccino on a plate. May you get a good night’s sleep post a slice of this!
