Cherry Coffee Cake Recipe

Delicious Cherry Coffee Cake made from Dark beer, White chocolate and Espresso

Cherries, Coffee and Cake – a combination impossible to resist.

When cherry and chocolate decide to tag along, the chocolate does not melt, but we melt. The black forest cherrie pie originated in the 20s as a layer dessert, among the most popular cakes in all of Germany.

Would you rather dispense the extra shot of cherry water spirits, but still want to have a small aroma kick to it? Then this espresso cherry cake may be just right for you. Coffee, cakes and cherries. What more do you need?

Fun-Fact: Botanically, the cherry is related to the queen of all flowers – the rose. Isn’t that romantic?

Directions

 Drain the cherries in a strainer. In the meantime melt the dark chocolate together with the butter in a pot and mix the freshly brewed Gourmesso espresso with the milk.

  Now beat the eggs and the chocolate mixture with a whisk. Then mix the flour and baking powder and stir the mixture. Once that is done carefully place the cherries.

Now fill the dough into a greased box shape and bake for approximately 1 hour in a preheated oven at 175 °C. Allow the cake to cool for 30 minutes, then pour it out of the mold.

Now only the white chocolate melt together with the oil in the water bath and then spread this chocolate with a spoon in strips over the cake. Garnish with coffee beans or chocolate chips.

Done. Enjoy!
