After sharing my Latte Buttercream Frosting recipe on Monday, I couldn’t leave you hanging.  So today you can try the amazing Latte Cake that I originally made the frosting for.

This Latte Cake is made with cold brew coffee.  I’ve tried making this with several different kinds of cold brew coffee, and I’ve found that it needs to be made with a cold brew concentrate. This is the brand I’ve used with good results.  I tried making it with Stok, and it didn’t taste like coffee, so make sure that you use a concentrate cold brew.

Alternately, you can make this cake with espresso, or use some strongly brewed coffee.  The difference being that often cold brew coffee is less acidic and its smooth, almost sweet flavor lends itself well to this dessert.  Cold brew coffee also has a stronger coffee flavor.

I’m not a huge cake eater (not that I’ll pass it up, but it’s not something I crave), but this latte cake was amazing.  I couldn’t walk past it without sneaking a bite, it was that good.  Serve with or without ice cream and a cup of hot coffee.
