Where would we be without coffee? It’s something most of us take very much for granted but would be loathe to do without. Not only is it a great way to ease into the day, we connect over it, rev ourselves up with it and sometimes even wind down with it. Coffee is also a wonderful ingredient to use in cakes and other desserts. It’s UK Coffee Week this week and to highlight this charitable inititative I’m sharing five recipes for cakes that go well with coffee .
Many of the world’s coffee growers live in conditions very unlike our own. UK Coffee Week was founded to bring the UK’s coffee lovers together to improve access to safe water for people in coffee growing countries. The money raised goes to Project Waterfall, working in partnership with Water Aid to provide safe water, good hygiene and improved sanitation to some of the poorest communities in the coffee growing regions of Africa. I find it sad to think that many of the people who grow coffee beans live in such challenging conditions. It’s good to know there are organisations working hard to help make their lives better and that there are ways we can help.
Any one of these delicious cakes that go well with coffee would be perfect for sharing at your next coffee morning or when you just need a treat. Enjoy! And don’t forget to check out the UK Coffee Week website.
