Austrian Coffee Cake

Recipe by Market Lane Coffee

This recipe comes from our friends Trotski & Ash and is a delicious sponge made with coffee. They use espresso in their recipe but we use a strong brew of pour over or plunger coffee and have had spectacular results. When cut, this cake has a lovely marbled effect from the coffee that has been drizzled over it.
