cake batter mocha

I have a problem: cake batter.

Add those two simple words, “cake batter,” in front of anything remotely dessert-like and I won’t be able to stop thinking about it.

The wonderful thing about the internet is that Google is quite helpful for ideas, but one thing I haven’t seen is a recipe for cake batter coffee.

I owed myself a special coffee one afternoon, but it wasn’t worth going out in a blizzard. So I improvised with ingredients we had on hand. This isn’t truly a mocha, but it works in a pinch and tastes enough like treat coffee to hit the spot. And let’s just say I find myself “in a pinch” every couple of days. ;D

Cake Batter Mocha

1 cup milk
1 tbsp espresso powder
1 tbsp sugar
3/4 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp yellow cake mix
3-4 drops butter flavor

Heat milk, add ingredients. Mix really, really well. If you drink it slowly, you may have to stir once in a while to keep some of the powder and mix from settling.

I made this cold the other day by heating up 1 tbsp milk and whisking dry ingredients into a syrup, then pouring that into the cold milk.

Can be made without cocoa powder–result is tad less rich, but the butter flavor is more prevalent.
