A moist coffee cake is filled with a coffee whipped cream and chopped heath bits then frosted with coffee buttercream and more heat bits. A true coffee lovers dream cake. You will love this Coffee Heath Bar Crunch Cake recipe. Just like the Ben & Jerry's Heath Bar Coffee Crunch Ice Cream!
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 daydream 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 every day either. Oops!
