My family members are huge coffee lovers (tea for me, please!), and I love baking Bundt cakes, so it was only natural I would eventually make a Coffee Bundt Cake!

The last (and first) coffee recipe I made were these Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies. They were a huge hit with my family, and are still my brother, Murray’s favourite cookie recipe. He requests them A LOT.

So, it’s about time I gave them a new coffee recipe to enjoy. Make way for my Coffee Bundt Cake!

This cake was a big success with my coffee-loving family, and I can see it being requested just as much as these cookies. This cake is so moist and fluffy, and is infused with coffee.

It is definitely not lacking in flavour – if you love coffee, this cake is for you!

Leftovers can be stored, covered, in the fridge for up to 3 days. I’m thinking mornings with a freshly brewed coffee, and a nice, big slice of this Coffee Bundt Cake. Sound good to you? 😉

Unfortunately, I have to agree with some of the other comments on here. I found the cake to be a bit dry. However, if you drink a good cup of coffee with it... it helps.

Can you use brewed coffee in place of the instant coffee?


Saturday 15th of January 2022

Yes, strong brewed coffee should work fine.

Looks delicious! Can I make this in a 9 by 13 inch cake pan instead of a Bundt pan?


Thursday 6th of May 2021

Yes, that should be fine :)

Hi Marsha, I tried baking your cake today as I love bundt cakes and coffee. While the cake feels moist, at the same time, it feels dry in your mouth and does not make me go for an extra slice. I followed the exact recipe. Just wondering what went wrong.

My cake didn’t come out moist. In fact, it kinda dried out and isn’t as dark. I followed the recipe exactly. It also didn’t take 45-50 mins in my oven. Was completely cooked inside within 38 mins. It cracked on the sides too. Could it be my oven?

Sounds to me like your oven temperature could be too hot. I recommend using an oven thermometer as not all oven temps are correct.
