I’m a total coffee person. I rely on the stuff to get me through each day, and I love it greatly in return. But sometimes, drinking coffee out of your favorite mug just isn’t enough. Sometimes, you wanna bake coffee flavor into something absolutely delicious and indulge in it in a whole different way. And thus, these recipes! Which, by the way, I am 100% sure taste great with a cuppa.

  1. omg they all look so good but i’m too lazy to cook them…
    I just did galette des rois for 14 people this weekend and MAN it took me the afternoon to make the custard, almond cream, assemble everything, etc. I’m done baking for like a month now.

  2. ALL OF THESE. I haven’t clicked into them yet but as someone who loves coffee and coffee flavoured things I’d like to recommend using instant-espresso-powder to flavour baked goods. It works SO WELL.

  3. I was planning on knitting with a friend before work tomorrow, & now we’re going to add a baking experiment to the mix! I love love love this series! Thank you x a million, ya’ll @ Autostraddle truly do the lord’s work
