Thank you so much to Catherine from the cooking blog “MIAM – La Cuisine De Cath” for this marble cake made using our Italian Lover beans. It’s full-bodied- what it takes to be marbled into the cake; it’s slightly fruity and chocolatey… what more can we ask for? It is as good in a cake as it is to drink, hot with a small square of chocolate! Read her post HERE !
Start by grinding the beans using a Skerton Manual Coffee Grinder. Pour the milk into a small saucepan and put it on the stove. When the milk is hot, pour in the freshly ground coffee, let simmer for 2 minutes while stirring. Turn off the heat and let the coffee steep.
Slightly melt your butter, and whisk in the brown sugar.
Add in the eggs, mix well, and then add the flour and yeast. Then separate your dough in half.
Melt the chocolate, and pass the coffee through a seive (if some powder or grains are left it’s ok!) and stir.
Pour the chocolate into one half of the batter and the coffee mix into the other. Add 2 tablespoons of milk to the chocolate cake, which will be much thicker.
Grease the cake tin, and cover in flour. Start by adding 2 tablespoons of the chocolate mix, followed by 2 tablespoons of the coffee mix. Do not stir them in together, and keep alternating the mixtures.
Let cool before taking the cake out of the mould …. You just can’t help but have a taste!
