Coffee Cake

Vanilla and coffee go hand in hand, so why not transform this simple vanilla cake mix into a coffee cake? Here is how you can do this:


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pack Trader Joe's cake mix
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 2 espresso shots (you can use coffee concentrate instead if you like)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Melt the unsalted butter and beat two eggs.
  • Pour in the milk and espresso or coffee extract, and mix together.
  • Slowly incorporate the Trader Joe’s cake mix and mid until smooth and creamy.
  • Line a baking tray with butter or oil, and pour in the cake mix.
  • Bake until golden brown and serve once the cake has cooled.
