‘Espresso Pound Cake’

'Espresso Pound Cake'

Recipe Courtesy of Epicurious.com

A caffeinated pound cake….woo hoo!  Craving a coffee-flavored dessert, I searched online for something unique that would satisfy my sweet tooth. I found this recipe from an older issue of Bon Appetit magazine for a heavenly espresso-flavored pound cake.  With all of the traditional pound cake ingredients (flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla, baking powder) you add in a touch of ground cinnamon and pecans, as well as instant espresso powder for that rich coffee-taste.  Not only is there espresso powder in the cake batter itself, but also in the simple confectioner’s sugar and milk glaze that tops the cooled cake.  For decoration, I like to serve this pound cake with a few chocolate-covered espresso beans.

      It really was…even better with a scoop of chocolate chip ice cream!
