Why Does Coffee Go So Well With Desserts?
Coffee is definitely something that graces most peoples' kitchens and workplaces in the morning, but you see coffee associated with dessert nearly as often! The bitterness of coffee is a natural balance to sweet desserts, so it's no wonder they're enjoyed together!
Most of my recipes use espresso powder to give the desserts their coffee flavor. This is because it is easy to incorporate, tastes strongly of coffee (so a little goes a long way!), and it can be added without much, or sometimes without any, additional liquid. Check the individual recipes for more detail on this ingredient!
Flavors That Go With Coffee
Some folks are very serious about their coffee, and would never dream of adding any flavors to it. Others, it seems, prefer a cup of flavored creamer with a few drops of coffee in it.
For the purposes of creating dessert recipes, however, I want a nice balance of coffee and complementing flavor(s).
Here are some flavors that pair beautifully with coffee:
- Chocolate - whether milk, dark, or white chocolate, it pairs well with coffee!
- Nuts, especially hazelnut and almond
- Pumpkin Spice
- Fruit - Especially berries and stone fruits, but I also like to pair with apples as well (like in my Caramel Apple Macchiato Bars).
While I don't have all of these flavors covered in my recipes below, you will see a good many of them!
