Thirsty/Tasty Thursday

This week’s Thirty/Tasty Thursday is all about coffee. Or coffee things. I have a yummy latte martini and an awesome little cake made in coffee mug 🙂

You just never know ;-P

You just never know ;-P

I love this in a minute cake. I have several baggies with the dry ingredients measured out at work so when the ‘need’ for a doughnut is strong, I omit the vanilla at work and ‘borrow’ a tablespoon from the kiddo’s snack applesauce (I buy their snack stuff so it isn’t stealing). I’ve used flavored applesauce (cherry and strawberry and they work fine). If I’m making it at home, I add the vanilla and will add a little coca to the flour.

Delight in a Mug ~

What you need:

1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons white sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon applesauce, or as needed
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
2 drops vanilla extract, or to taste

1 pinch salt
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

What you do:

1. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a microwave-safe mug until softened, about 10 seconds. Stir white sugar into butter until dissolved. Mix 1/4 cup flour, applesauce, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt into butter-sugar mixture until batter is smooth.
2. Mix 2 teaspoons flour, 1 teaspoon butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl using your hands until the texture of lumpy sand is reached; sprinkle over batter.
3. Cook in the microwave until coffeecake appears to be barely set, 50 to 80 seconds. Cool before eating.

I use flavored coffee for this martini but regular coffee is fine. DSCN1632DSCN1633DSCN1634

After Hours Latte ~

What you need:

4 oz coffee
2 oz Bailey Cream (or similar liqueur)
2 oz vanilla vodka
Whip cream vodka
Chocolate syrup.
What you do:
Mix coffee, vanilla vodka, and Bailey Cream together. Stir in a splash of whip cream vodka and chocolate syrup because no latte is complete without those 😛
