Ingredients

For the coffee cakes:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for pans
  • 1/2 heaping teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup instant espresso powder
  • 2 sticks butter, softened, plus extra for pans
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, plus 2 yolks

For the frosting:

Butter and flour mini loaf pans. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix together the sour cream and espresso until dissolved.

In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
