Coffee Cake With Coffee Caramel Sauce

Thank you Encouraging Hearts and Home for the feature of my Simply Cocoa Brownies. I love your kind words as always. Kathi of Simple Homestead, thank you for the warm welcome on your blog by featuring my brownies. Thank you also Andrea of A Morning Cup of Joe for the inclusion of my brownies on your list of features. Your thoughts are lovely.

I love coffee and I wont survived a day without my brewed black coffee. I normally  drink my coffee when I wake up in the morning, a mug of it as I sat on the sofa while staring out of the window for like 15 minutes.. yes, this is how I start my day. No, I am not depressed..nothing serious is going on in my brain..its just me in the morning..😍  

I have made cupcakes with coffee, muffins with coffee, cookies with coffee and cakes with coffee. Today I am sharing with you the coffee cake of my life, it smells so much of coffee and when you bite, theres a subtle taste of bitterness.. and for a change..this cake is in a bundt pan .The  glorious thing is that I decided to pour some caramel sauce..with coffee of course. Then I saw some leftover baked pecans...and into it right away. Wow! I have mentioned coffee so many times..sorry, I have deep love for coffee 😘

For the cake:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 ¼  cup fine brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
3 tbsp Instant coffee powder or crystal
1/2 cup sour cream
3  large eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup hot water
1 cup chopped nuts of your choice, divided ( optional)
Note: you can add ½ cup in the cake batter and the other half for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour a bundt pan or any moulder of your preference.
In a large bowl, mix sugar, flour, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, add buttermilk, eggs, baking soda, and vanilla. Mix well. Set aside
Add 3 tablespoons instant coffee to 1 cup hot water. Set aside
In a sauce pan, melt butter over medium-low heat, add coffee mixture to the butter in the pot.
Let it boil for about ten seconds, then turn off the heat.
Pour the butter coffee mixture into the flour mixture. Stir the mixture together gently.
Add in the egg mixture and stir gently until well combined. Then pour into the pan.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until set. Allow to cool completely.

For the caramel sauce:
3/4 cup salted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp coffee, powdered or crystal
In a saucepan, melt butter over low heat. 
Whisk in brown sugar and milk
Bring to a boil and gently reduce to a simmer. 
Whisk constantly for about 5 minutes.
Then remove from heat. Add coffee. Stir in vanilla. 
Allow the caramel to cool for 5 minutes.
Then pour over cake. Slice and serve. Enjoy!

Here is one cake that is so close to my heart. You know why? because its coffee.. Oh I love coffee! I seldom bake these days but I still go out of my way to bake for people that I care. Together lets pray for the virus to end. Lets eat, lets giggle and lets be merry.
