5 Next-Level Recipes to Add Coffee To!
This just in folks…coffee. goes. with. everything. We love it at every meal rain or shine, hot or cold, bitter or sweet. Coffee in its most recognizable form is nothing to scoff at. Its fragrant aromas, complex flavors are wonderful on their own, but these attributes also make for an insanely delicious recipe addition. Coffee can and often does elevate many of our favorite foods. Below are 5 things you can make exceptionally more delicious with…coffee.
- Mocha Brownies
Okay…this one is a no brainer. It’s common knowledge that chocolate and coffee are the mecca of flavor combinations. Quite often we wonder if skipping dinner and eating two desserts is acceptable. Add ground coffee to your favorite brownie recipe to elevate the chocolaty goodness of these treats. Brownie points if you add a scoop of coffee ice cream on top! (You see what we did there)
- Baked Beans
This sounds a little suspect at first but coffee is truly an elevator of flavors. Adding coffee liquid to your baked beans will perfectly compliment the smoky and spicy flavors of your go-to baked beans recipe.
YAS burgers! Summertime especially calls for a delicious, juicy cheeseburger. Amp your burgers up this year with an out of this world coffee rub. Try combining black pepper, oregano, coriander and brown sugar with a HiLine Coffee Espresso for a new twist on the classic summertime dish. (Side Note: Works on many meats. Sky’s the limit)
- Coffee and Orange Zest Bread
While homemade bread isn’t the easiest undertaking, the reward is worth the effort. This flavor combination is perfect for french toast, sandwiches (especially of the peanut butter variety) or quite honestly on its own.
