Coffee-Flavored Cake Syrup Recipe

This is just standard cake syrup but with a little zing. Remember that cake syrup is made by combining water and sugar 2-1 by volume and then heating it until the sugar dissolves. To make coffee cake syrup combine 1 cup of water with half a cup of sugar and add about three tablespoons of instant coffee or instant espresso powder. Bring the mixture to a simmer and…done! Cool and store in the refrigerator until needed. It’ll keep well for a week or more.

  2. Hi, these are beautiful web sites and beautiful pastry pieces. I tried Opera and it doesn’t much look like yours, but the taste – everyone love it :-). Thanks and Im looking forward to another master pieces! Michaela

  3. WOW!! I just came across your website today, and I am really blown away by the amazing variety and wonderfully detailed explanations!! I am super-tempted to try the Opera Cake!! Do you have the recipe for the joconde sheets? I can’t seem to find it. Thanks in advance!! <3

    1. Hi Nadia!

      Instead of joconde you can use another sponge cake like génoise or neo-classic génoise. I have recipe for both on the site in the Pastry Components menu. Good luck with the project!

  4. Hi Joe

    This looks great for an idea I had, which is to make coffee ice cream with swirls of coffee-flavoured syrup in it – a bit like raspberry ripple. Do you think this would work for that purpose?
