Coffee Recipe's you'll Never Find in Starbucks!

{Collaboration} Coffee is one of the world’s favourite flavours, and yet most of the time we drink it in the same old-fashioned way. There’s not a tremendous amount of experimentation going on, especially by leading coffee chains.

Fortunately, there are lots of people out there working away feverishly on coffee recipes, trying to come up with new ideas to excite the taste buds.

Here are some coffee recipes you’ll never find in your favourite coffee shop.

Hazelnut Latte Cake

Lattes are moreish, decadent coffee drinks made of milk and a shot of espresso or two.
Hazelnut latte cakes are cakes that take the spirit of a latte and make them so much better.

A typical hazelnut latte cake is the ultimate coffee cake. Not only does it pair nicely with coffee, but it contains a fair amount of the stuff too.

The cake is made of layers of alternating chocolate and hazelnut sponge topped off with a beautiful hazelnut frosting. Some pros like to add chopped, roasted hazelnuts to the top for a little extra flavour. There is a recipe for this cake online at

Turkish Sour Coffee

If you’ve never tried Turkish sour coffee, you need to give it a go, especially in the run-up to the festive season.

Turkish sour coffees are simple to make and include coffee, cloves, cinnamon, rum, cardamom, egg whites, lemon juice and lemon peel.

As you might guess from that ingredient list, these drinks tend to be a little on the sour side, but that shouldn’t put you off. It’s refreshing and provides a welcome change from the usual sickly sweet drinks you tend to encounter around Christmas time.

Mocha Milkshake

Do you sometimes wish you could have a good old-fashioned milkshake with a coffee twist? Well, with a mocha milkshake, you can.

First, source some coffee granules. Sites like provide more details on how to find beans that taste great.

Next, grab your favourite milk or plant-based alternative and some ice cream. Finally, get your favourite chocolate and then mix it all up in a high-powered blender. The result is a creamy, chocolate-infused, coffee-based milkshake that tastes divine.

Chocolate Coffee Bomb Cake

The cakes that you can get in most coffee shops tend to lack theatre. There’s a good reason for this: keeping things fresh on a shelf all day is challenging to do. Coffee shops play it safe. It’s unlikely that you’ll ever find a chocolate-coffee bomb in the store.

That doesn’t mean that you can’t make one though.

Chocolate coffee bomb cake is unique and delicious. The outside is made of regular chocolate-coffee sponge, but the inside is a warm, thick goo of chocolatey goodness.

Making these cakes requires an expert touch as well as the right ingredients, but if you pull it off, you can bring your love of coffee to your desserts. There’s no need to fall back on tiramisu.

So there you have it: coffee recipes that you won’t find in Starbucks any time soon.
