Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

The Almond-Coffee Delight recipe is best enjoyed fresh and warm, straight out of the oven. However, you can make this delightful coffee cake ahead of time and store it for later use.

To make this recipe ahead of time, allow the baked coffee cake to cool down completely before storing in an airtight container. You may place it in the refrigerator for up to three days or freeze it for up to two weeks. If freezing, wrap it in plastic wrap followed by foil to avoid freezer burn.

When reheating, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C), remove the coffee cake from the fridge or freezer, and let it thaw at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Once thawed, you may reheat in the oven for about 10-15 minutes until heated through.

For a quick reheating if you’re short on time and have a microwave on hand, you may slice a piece of the cake and heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds on high power. However, this method might make your baked treat a little rubbery when compared to the oven method.

Whether you’re looking for something easy and tasty to serve for dessert during holiday gatherings or simply craving some almond-flavored dessert after dinner, this make-ahead Almond-Coffee Delight recipe is the perfect solution. So what are you waiting for? Get baking!

To ensure the perfect almond coffee delight every time, here are my top tips and tricks:

1. Use fresh ingredients: When making any recipe, fresher is always better. Use fresh ingredients to ensure maximum flavor.

2. Add depth with cocoa: For an even richer flavor, add a teaspoon of cocoa powder to your almond coffee mixture.

5. Add ice cream for a decadent treat: If you’re feeling extra indulgent, top the almond coffee delight with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a dessert-like treat.

6. Make it ahead of time: This recipe can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

7. Keep it warm: If you want to keep your almond coffee delight warm during service, transfer it to a thermos or insulated carafe to maintain its temperature.
