4 Recipes Using Coffee as a Secret Ingredient
Just a hint of coffee can bring out a burst of flavor.
Broiled Spicy Steaks
Most spice producers make at least one commercial spice rub for beef. But you won’t find our flavor combination anywhere on grocery store shelves. Mixing a bit of coffee into the rub creates a rich, aromatic flavor.
Seattle Chiffon Cake
Chiffon cakes tend to feature delicate aromas such as lemon. This cake takes a different route to flavor with rich-tasting cocoa powder, cinnamon, and brewed espresso. Walnut oil gives the cake a delightfully nutty quality, but you could also use extra-light olive oil or canola oil. Get the Seattle Chiffon Cake recipe.
