I like cake. I also like Ben & Jerry’s Coffee Heath Bar Crunch Ice Cream. I like it and my boyfriend loves it. Those b&j tubs are so small that who doesn’t go through a tub in one sitting?!

Things are not as hectic and crazy for me right now so I have had time to day dream about baking.  Last week I made this cake and naturally cake was still on my mind. I just happened to be finishing off a tub of Coffee Heath Bar Crunch when I found myself thinking of cake.

I used my nan’s coffee cake recipe and made a coffee buttercream and coffee whipped cream to fill the cake with. I also used an obnoxious amount of Heath Bar’s cut up. Looking back on this cake my mother and I decided next time I make it (because there will be!!) chocolate covered coffee beans would be a fabulous addition

This cake is rich, decedent and you don’t need a huge slice. But I don’t need to go to Target everyday either. Oops!  Coffee Heath Bar Crunch Cake www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com

Coffee Heath Bar Crunch Cake

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temp.
  • Instant coffee ( as strong as you like)
  • Hot water ( more or less depending on how strong you want coffee flavor)
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • 20 mini Heath Bars, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease two 8 or 9 inch pans.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add sugar, eggs and butter mix until fully combined
  3. In a cup pour some hot water over some instant coffee granules. Add as much or as little as you want to the cake batter. Set the rest aside for frosting.
  4. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. I always start check my cakes at about 25 minutes and check with a toothpick.
  5. Once cooked let cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. In a mixing bowl beat heavy cream, powdered sugar and around 2 tbsp of coffee mixture. Beat until stiff peaks form.
  7. On serving plate place one layer of cake then spread with coffee whipped cream. Sprinkle 1/2 of the chopped Heath bars on top and place second cake on top. Place in fridge while making frosting.
  8. In a mixing bowl combine the heavy cream, butter, coffee mixture, and powdered sugar mix for 3-5 minutes.
  9. Spread the frosting on top of cake and sprinkle remaining chopped Heath bars. Store in fridge.

Hahaa… when I read the title of this blog I thought it said ‘coffee HEALTH bar crunch cake’. I was thinking… “Uh, what? Those things are HEALTHY?! I want!”. And then I realised that I misread the word. Sad face. I’ve never heard of a Heath bar (which I guess is partly why I got the word wrong) as they’re not sold here in Australia. What do they taste like? Is there another bar that would be a good substitute? Thanks lovely!

Thats why I don’t buy B & J ice cream, I’d eat in all in a few short minutes! The buttercream alone is amazing!

This looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it.
I’m confused on steps 6-8. Is there a filling and a frosting? What are the measurements on each?
Thanks!

Thanks Rebecca it was amazing! There is a coffee infused whipped cream (step 6) that is placed in between the cake layers and then there is a coffee buttercream (step 8) that is on top of the second cake layer- with heath bars on top of both the whipped cream and butter cream. Hope that makes sense and LMK if you make it :)

WOW this looks amazing!!!!

Thanks Julie :)

You are on a roll this week! I am drooling every time I stop by! I just love it all! How do you stay so cute and thin?

LOL thanks!! And thin isn’t exactly a word I would use to describe myself but I try to eat healthier for every meal other than dessert but some times pizza and beer or pulled pork and mac and cheese, I just can’t say no to! Haha

[…] um?  This Coffee Heath Bar Crunch Cake from Confessions of a Baking Queen pretty much combines everything I love in one […]

How can 1 1/3 cups flour make a 2 layer cake? Seems like it should only be one layer. Is this correct?

Hi Ellen, yes sorry that was a typo- I have fixed it now. Thank you for letting me know! LMK if I can help with anything else :)

To keep your coffee at the perfect temperature use a double wall foam insulated coffee mug.

[…] I also, love my version with tons of heath bars.  […]
