Coffee is so much more than something we sip when we’re sleepy. Many of us enjoy a mug of the caffeinated beverage while socializing with friends, catching up with loved ones, and as a comforting pick-me-up on a cool fall day. National Coffee Day celebrates java’s significance and the many years it has been around, which the National Coffee Association says dates back to the 15th century when it first became popular on the Arabian Peninsula.

To commemorate National Coffee Day, prepare a dish that has a coffee glaze or filling that will pair perfectly with your favorite cup of joe. You’ll find that cinnamon rolls, cake, brownies, and pie all taste better when they’re coated or filled with a sweet java flavor. Here are 6 must-try recipes that will add a touch of tasty coffee to your breakfasts and desserts.

1. Mocha Bundt Cake With Coffee Glaze

This moist bundt cake tastes even better when paired with a coffee-flavored glaze. If you don’t have espresso powder on hand, you can also use instant coffee in this Baking Bites recipe. To create the perfect National Coffee Day dish, polish it off with touch of whipped cream and a few chocolate-covered coffee beans.


  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup instant espresso powder (or instant coffee)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup hot coffee


  • 1 ½ tablespoons coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1 ¼ cups confectioners’ sugar

Directions: To make the glaze, whisk together coffee, vanilla, and 1 cup confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Gradually whisk in additional confectioners’ sugar until glaze reaches a smooth, but thick, consistency. To make the bundt cake, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease and flour a bundt pan. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, whisk together vegetable oil, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, instant espresso powder, and vanilla until well-combined. Stir in half of the flour mixture, followed by the buttermilk.

Mix in the remaining flour mixture, stirring just until all the ingredients come together and no streaks of flour remain visible. Pour hot coffee into batter and whisk until completely incorporated. Batter will be fairly thin. Pour batter into bundt pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the pan comes out clean and the cake springs back when lightly pressed. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely before glazing.
