Cold Brew Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  • ½ cup Madesco cold brew coffee


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat an 8×2 inch round cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. Line the bottom with parchment paper and spray the paper.
  3. In a food processor, combine flour, cinnamon, and brown sugar using the pulse setting to mix.
  4. Add the butter or margarine and pulse until the mixture looks like coarse bread crumbs. Transfer ½ cup of this mixture to a small bowl, mix with nuts, and set aside.
  5. Add the egg and coffee to the food processor and pulse until just combined.
  6. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan.
  7. Sprinkle the nut mixture over the top and bake until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes.
  8. Place on a cooling rack for 10 minutes before serving.

Cold Brew Coffee Ice Cream

Serves: Makes approx 1 liter



  1. Create the cold-brew coffee concentrate by taking 3/4 cup of coarsely ground coffee and putting it into the Madesco Cold Brew Coffee Filter. Add 3/4 cup of cool water and let it steep for 12 hours.
  2. Mix the condensed milk, cream, and quarter cup of cold-brew coffee concentrate in a bowl, and keep it in the fridge to chill for a couple of hours to allow it sufficient time to get really cold.
  3. During the last two minutes of churn, add chocolate chips.
  4. Place it in a freezer container and give it a good stir to make sure the chocolate chips are all incorporated.
  5. Before serving, you can drizzle some Caramel Coffee Sauce on top!
