Mocha Cappuccino Coffee Cake - THB



I am late making this Mocha Cappuccino Coffee Cake for The Home Bakers, a group baking coffee cakes from "Coffee Cakes" by Lou Seibert Pappas. I love this book since my husband is the happiest with coffee cake. This cake was chosen by Lena of Frozen Wings who bakes the most marvelous cakes. Just take a look.

Out group, THB, was started by Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you would like to join us, contact her and have some fun, with us.

Why am I late? I have agonized over this cake since I saw it on the list. I would love it but hubby would not like the chocolate that marbleizes that cake. First, I decided to cut the recipe way now and make it with the chocolate. When I asked my husband, if he would eat it, he said, "no".

Then, I decided to skip the cake completely. I did not want to eat it up myself. The date of posting came and I was not linked up. It didn't feel right not to be linked. I still could not decide what to do.

Then, I talked to myself and said, "it is only a cake." Right. Only a cake so go and make it. I did but I completely left out the chocolate and I ended up with some lovely Cappuccino Roses.

I did cut this recipe in thirds and ended up with 7 roses. For the recipe for the full delicious cake, go to Lena of Frozen Wings and to see the other cakes, please visit The Home Bakers (THB).

By the way, hubby liked these so cappuccino passes even though chocolate doesn't.

  1. Hi Chaya, Your Cappuccino Roses look lovely! I really should get myself some baking moulds like this, mine are pretty boring! I'm glad that you have decided to give this cake a try and you did well making it all with Cappuccino! This cake is a winner in my house too! Hope you have a great week ahead!

  2. I love the cute little roses. I have a small tea cake pan, but the recipe that came with it makes horrible tea cakes - these looks like a great solution, even without the chocolate :).
