GARDEN GOODIES: Homemade Coffee Cake

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

As the Wisconsin Valley Fair kicked off, Justin Loew took Garden Goodies to Marathon Park before bringing some goodies back to the desk on Wednesday! He served up some delicious homemade coffee cake with beans from his garden!

Justin’s Recipe: 

Dry ingredients
3 and 1/3 cups flour
1 and 3/4 cups sugar
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
Wet ingredients
1 stick melted butter
1/4 melted coconut oil
3/4 cup strong coffee (cool or cold!)
3/4 heavy whipping cream
3 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
Streusel ingredients
1/4 melted butter
2 oz crushed walnuts
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp very finely ground coffee
1/3 cup flour
2 tsp cinnamon
Glaze ingredients
Leftover strong coffee mixed with powdered sugar until smooth
If possible use a coffee grinder to grind the coffee used in the streusel until it is a fine powder. Crush the walnuts. Mixed melted butter, cinnamon, flour, coffee, brown sugar, and crushed walnuts until you get a semi crumbly mixture
As with any cake, mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another bowl. Slowly mix the wet and dry ingredients until smooth. I used a hand wisk. But a mixer works fine as well.
Spoon half of the batter into the bottom of a 9X9 baking pan. Sprinkle the streusel on top of the first layer, trying to keep it just a little bit away from the 4 edges of the pan. Spoon the second half of the batter on top of the streusel. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Be careful on the cooking time because different pans or ovens could shift the baking time by about 10 minutes either way. Also, you could use a wooden skewer to poke the cake. If it comes out clean, then it is done. Drizzle on the coffee-flavored glaze after the cake has cooled. This can be made as a bundt cake as well.
