Coffee cake is thought to have originated in Germany but has evolved throughout the years across different continents to bring us the huge variety of coffee cakes we have today. Traditionally, coffee cake is flavored with - you guessed it - coffee. Here at Brooklyn Brew Shop, we know and love that liquid sunshine all too well, and so wanted to pay homage with our own recipe.
We decided to put a twist on this classic breakfast treat by mixing Spent Grain Flour into the cake itself and its deliciously crumbly Streusel topping. The addition of the Spent Grain adds a comforting nutty flavor perfect for decadent pastries like coffee cake. With an extra beery boost from some rich coffee stout (in the glaze), this one's gonna have your brunch guests fighting for seconds and savoring every bite.
