Blum's Coffee Crunch Cake
Crushed bits of homemade coffee candy adorn the outside of this delicious cake.
Why This Recipe Works
This retro San Francisco cake marries light lemon chiffon cake with coffee-kissed whipped cream. The unforgettable part of the dessert is the homemade coffee candy that coats the exterior. We made the candy by adding baking soda to a simple cooked syrup of sugar, coffee, and corn syrup. Once cooled and smashed, the candy pieces are crunchy, crisp, and airy like honeycomb.
