Step 1: Preheat and Prepare

Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C). Grease and flour a 10-12 cup bundt pan. In a small bowl, dissolve 2 teaspoons of instant coffee in 1/4 cup of hot water. Stir in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, then set it aside.

Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients

In a medium bowl, combine 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Use a whisk to blend them together until they are fully combined.

Step 3: Cream Filling

In a separate bowl or stand mixer, beat together 8 oz cream cheese softened, 1/3 cup sugar, and 2 large eggs until smooth. Add in the coffee mixture and blend well.

Step 4: Create Batter

In a mixing bowl or stand mixer, beat together 1 1/2 cups of unsalted butter softened with 2 cups of sugar until light and fluffy. Add in 4 large eggs, one at a time, blending well after each addition. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients mixture until everything is nicely mixed together. Then add in the additional wet mixtures with coffee and sour cream until a smooth cake batter is formed.

Step 5: Fill Bundt Pan

Pour half of the batter into prepared bundt pan. Then spoon cream cheese filling over batter mixture carefully spreading it around without touching sides or bottom of pan. Top it up again with remaining cake batter on the top.

Step 6: Bake and Cool

Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. When done, let it cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 7: Add Glaze

Once the cake has cooled completely, prepare the cream cheese glaze by stirring together 4 oz of softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, and 3 cups of powdered sugar. Mix until smooth and creamy then drizzle over cooled cake.

Follow each step closely and you’ll be able to create an amazing Coffee Cream Cheese Bundt Cake that will impress your family and friends. Enjoy!

Substitutions and Variations

As a barista, I know how important customization is when it comes to coffee. Similarly, in cooking, substitutions and variations help break the monotony of regular recipes. Here are some substitutions and variations for this Coffee Cream Cheese Bundt Cake Recipe:

– Flour: for this recipe, I recommend using all-purpose flour. However, you can use cake flour if you desire a more tender crumb. You can also use whole wheat or gluten-free flour if you prefer.

– Sugar: granulated white sugar works well in this recipe. Alternatively, you can use brown sugar for a deeper flavor.

– Cream Cheese: The coffee cream cheese filling gives this cake its unique flavor. If you’re not a fan of cream cheese or want to change things up, try using Nutella or peanut butter swirled into the batter.

– Butter: I recommend using unsalted butter but if all you have is salted butter, reduce the amount of salt used in the recipe to adjust the taste. You can also use coconut oil or margarine as a substitute.

– Coffee: instant coffee dissolves easily in hot water and is perfect for this recipe. You can experiment with different flavors like hazelnut or caramel or substitute with brewed coffee instead.

– Add-ins and Toppings: Dried fruits such as raisins, cranberries or apricots chunks make great additions to this cake. You can also add nuts like walnuts or almonds for texture. Top the cake with cinnamon sugar or cream cheese icing for added sweetness.

By making these simple substitutions and variations, you can customize this Coffee Cream Cheese Bundt Cake Recipe to suit your taste preferences and create something uniquely yours!

Serving and Pairing

Once your coffee cream cheese bundt cake is out of the oven and cooled, it’s time to think about how you’ll serve and pair it.

First things first – you may be tempted to dig right in, but resist the urge to slice into your cake before allowing it to cool completely. The cream cheese filling needs time to set, so refrigerate your cake for at least 30 minutes before slicing.

When it comes to serving, I like to dust my bundt cakes with a bit of powdered sugar or cinnamon for an extra touch of sweetness. You can also add a dollop of whipped cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce if you’re feeling indulgent.

As for pairing, this cake pairs perfectly with a steaming cup of coffee. You can use the same instant coffee that you used in the recipe for a cohesive flavor profile. If you prefer tea, try a black tea with a hint of caramel or vanilla to complement the flavor of the cake.

If you’re serving this cake for brunch or dessert, consider pairing it with fresh fruit like berries or sliced apples. Their tartness will provide a nice contrast to the richness of the cake.

Overall, this coffee cream cheese bundt cake is versatile enough to be served on its own or paired with other treats. It’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser no matter how you choose to enjoy it!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

One of the best things about Coffee Cream Cheese Bundt Cake is that it can be made ahead of time. You can bake this cake a day or two in advance and store it properly in the refrigerator or freezer.

Once you have baked the Coffee Cream Cheese Bundt Cake, let it cool to room temperature before storing it. It’s important to either wrap the cake tightly in plastic wrap, so that it stays moist and doesn’t dry out, or place it in an airtight container. Then, store it in the fridge for up to four days, or in the freezer for up to three months.

When reheating the cake from frozen, let it thaw overnight in the fridge before reheating. To reheat the cake, preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and remove any plastic wrap or container. Either cover the cake with aluminum foil or transfer it to a baking dish with a cover. Reheat the cake for about 20-25 minutes.

If you plan on serving the Coffee Cream Cheese Bundt Cake at room temperature, take it out of the fridge about 30 minutes before serving so that it can come to room temperature. This will help bring out all of those delicious flavors.

Remember when reheating this bundt cake that one of its main ingredients is cream cheese. So be cautious and make sure that you’re not overheating it – otherwise, you might end up with a melted mess!

Tips for Perfect Results

Baking a perfect coffee cream cheese bundt cake can be a challenge, especially for novice bakers. Here are some tips to help you make the best possible coffee cream cheese bundt cake recipe.

Firstly, make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature before you begin. You need your cream cheese, butter, and eggs to be soft, so they mix well in the cake batter. If they’re not at room temperature, microwave them for 15 seconds or so to soften them up.

Secondly, don’t overmix the batter. Mix the ingredients on medium speed until everything is just combined, and then stop. Overmixing will make the cake tough and dense.

Thirdly, use good quality instant coffee to enhance the flavor of your coffee cream cheese bundt cake. Brew a cup of hot water and dissolve the instant coffee into it before adding it to the batter.

Fourthly, prepare your bundt pan properly by greasing it with shortening or butter thoroughly. This will ensure that the cake doesn’t stick to the pan when you try to remove it.

Fifthly, do not open the oven door too often while baking the cake as it can cause the cake to sink in the center. Check doneness with a skewer after 70-75 minutes of baking.

Sixthly, allow your cake to cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes before turning it out onto a wire rack to cool completely. The cake will shrink slightly as it cools, making it easier to remove from the pan.

Finally, if you want to give your coffee cream cheese bundt cake an extra boost of flavor and elegance, drizzle a little bit of glaze over it after it’s cooled down.

By keeping these tips in mind and following them carefully, you will be able to bake a perfect coffee cream cheese bundt cake every time!
