Blueberry coffee cake latte recipe

Sweet sugary crumble over a moist, crumbly cake riddled with scrumptious ripe blueberries… hot, cold, or in a drink blueberry coffee cake is always welcome in our kitchen! Our Blueberry coffee cake latte captures the gentle richness of this delicate cake and can be made using either espresso or your regular coffee. Enjoy!

HOT VARIATION

Step 1: Add to your mug (note: we use a 12-ounce mug):

  • 2 crushed tea biscuits*
  • ¼ teaspoon of brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon of white sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon of blueberry jam
  • A few drops of coffee (just enough to saturate the biscuits)

Step 2: Whisk the ingredients until they are fully blended.

Step 3: Add 1 shot of espresso or 8-ounces of freshly brewed coffee. We recommend using a dark roast coffee or blueberry coffee cake coffee but any coffee, aside from those with peppery notes (e.g., a Sumatran), will work.

Step 4: Whisk or blend the ingredients together until well-blended.

Step 5: Add milk to taste (this can be warm or cool milk). If you are heating the milk, heat it until it is warm to the touch. You can also froth the milk before adding it to the coffee to create additional texture.

Step 6: Top with foamed milk and / or whipped cream, crushed tea biscuits, and a pinch of cinnamon or brown sugar (or both!).

Step 7: Enjoy!

ICED VARIATION

Step 1: Add to your glass:

  • 2 crushed tea biscuits*
  • ¼ teaspoon of brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon of white sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon of blueberry jam
  • A few drops of coffee (just enough to saturate the biscuits)

Step 2: Whisk the ingredients until they are fully blended.

Step 3: Add either a mix of coffee ice cubes and freshly brewed coffee or heavy freshly brewed coffee.

  • Swap out half of the coffee for coffee ice cups. In a standard ice cube tray, each cube is roughly equivalent to one ounce. Using 4 coffee ice cubes and 4-ounces of freshly brewed coffee will keep the proper water-to-coffee ratio.

OR

  • Add 1/8th – 1/5th extra coffee grinds to your regular brew to avoid dilution when pouring your coffee over ice. If you are using espresso, use 2 shots of espresso.

Step 4: Whisk or blend the ingredients together until well-blended.

Step 5: Add milk to taste (this can be warm or cool milk). If you are heating the milk, heat it until it is warm to the touch. You can also froth the milk before adding it to the coffee to create additional texture.

Step 6: Top with foamed milk and / or whipped cream, crushed tea biscuits, and a pinch of cinnamon or brown sugar (or both!).

Step 7: Enjoy!

*If you don’t have tea biscuits, any neutrally flavored or vanilla flavored biscuit will work. If using vanilla flavored biscuits, you may need to cut back on the sugars.
