Vegan Avocado Brownies (Healthy & Gluten-Free)

Fudgy and rich vegan avocado brownies are better than regular brownies. These are flavorful, spongy, and packed with chocolate and nutrients.

These vegan avocado brownies are healthy, vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free. They are great for breakfast, dessert, or a special treat. Since we should not feel guilty after eating a treat, I added healthy ingredients to this brownie recipe. No one will tell that the star ingredient in this recipe is avocados.

Coquito Tres Leches Cake – Puerto Rican Dessert

Coquito Tres Leches Cake – Puerto Rican Dessert

Coquito Tres Leches Cake is a delicious sponge cake soaked in my traditional Coquito and topped with Italian Meringue.

This is my version of Coquito Tres Leches. I’ve been making this recipe for a very long time. It was my clients’ favorite recipe when I had my home-based bakery in Kentucky. Although sharing my delicious Coquito Tres Leches recipe wasn’t on my list, because it is my classic cake recipe. Some of my clients in Kentucky are missing having this cake during their holiday feast, so I decided to share it. Plus, sharing is caring! You can make this cake vegan very easily. Read the recipe notes for vegan replacements. As I always mention, feel free to replace any ingredient. If you want to use this cake as a basic cake just replace the coquito with your choice of milk.

Coffee Coffee Cake with Pumpkin Streusel – Healthy and Vegan

Coffee Coffee Cake with Pumpkin Streusel – Healthy and Vegan

This Coffee Coffee Cake with Pumpkin Streusel is a delicious twist of the regular Coffee Cake recipe. This decadent cake is infused with delicious dark roasted coffee from Honduras. It’s rich, moist, fluffy, and so delicious! Trust me, you would love this cake.

It’s not a secret that I’m addicted to coffee. Dark roasted from Latin American is my favorite kind. I’ve been wanting to try a coffee cake recipe for a while now. Although the word coffee is in the name of the recipe, the classic coffee cake recipe doesn’t have coffee. Clearly, I needed to try a coffee cake recipe with actual coffee. Definitely this coffee, coffee cake is a game-changer.

Paradiso Farm Honduras Coffee

For this cake, I use dark roast coffee from Honduras roasted in Vermont by Paradiso Farm (not sponsored, just a recommendation). This coffee is so rich and delicious. Also, I added a twist of pumpkin spice to the recipe and it turned out heavenly. As a result, it will give you fall vibes and everything nice.

Let’s talk about the coffee:

Some coffee coffee cake recipes call for instant coffee or coffee granules. Undoubtedly, I had to use strong brew high-quality coffee for my recipe. Without any doubt, the fresh brew coffee works like a charm. If you are susceptible to caffeine you can totally use decaf coffee.

Streusel Topping:

Firstly, let me tell you that I love streusel topping so much. It wouldn’t be the same without it. This streusel calls for espresso coffee granules, but you can totally leave it out. Although the flavors would not be the same. I saved part of the streusel and baked it for 8 minutes. Then I used it as a topping for my cake.

Coffee Glaze:

This coffee glaze will melt in your mouth. If you want to make it sugar-free you can use a sugar-free sweetener like Swerve. Also, you can add peanut butter, cookie butter, or hazelnut spread.

This Coffee Coffee Cake with Pumpkin Streusel is:

  • Easy to make
  • Healthy
  • You can make it sugar-free
  • Rich and flavorful
  • Moist and spongy
  • The perfect dessert, breakfast, or snack

To conclude, this cake is the perfect dessert for breakfast, snack, or dessert. When baking always use quality ingredients. Also, make sure your ingredients are room temperature before making the recipe.

Equipment

  • Cake pan
  • Hand or electric mixer

Ingredients
  

Pumpkin Streusel

  • 1/2 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar I used Splenda blend
  • 1/2 tsp Pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 tsp Instant coffee powder 
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 tbsp Unsalted butter, melted  I used dairy free

Cake

  • 1 3/4 cups All-purpose flour 
  • 3/4 tsp Baking powder 
  • 3/4 tsp Baking soda 
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon 
  • 1/2 tsp Salt 
  • 1/4 tsp Pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 cup Strong brewed coffee (room temperature)
  • 1/3 cup Sour cream  (I used Vegan – Follow your Heart)
  • 2 Sticks Unsalted butter, room temperature I used vegan
  • 1 cup Granulated sugar  I used Lakanto Monk Fruit
  • 2 Eggs (I replaced it using Aquafaba)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract 

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-Inch Springform Pan, round cake 8-Inch pan or a Bundt cake pan.
  • For the streusel topping: In a medium bowl, mix the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, instant coffee powder and salt. Add the softened butter and using a fork mix until crumbs form. Use your hands to form clumps. Set aside.
  • For the cake: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and pumpkin spice. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the coffee and sour cream until smooth.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs or aquafaba, one at a time, mixing until well combined. Add the vanilla extract and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Starting and ending with the dry ingredients, alternate adding the flour mixture and the coffee mixture to the stand mixer; mix each addition well, scraping the bowl each addition.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and top with crumb topping, spreading it evenly. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  
  • Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 20 to 30 minutes before cutting and serving.

Notes

  • For better results use room temperature ingredients.
  • Replace regular sour cream for a plain vegan sour cream brand.
  • To replace the eggs the best option in baking in my opinion is aquafaba.
    Aquafaba: Make sure to give your aquafaba a light whisk before using. Three tablespoons of aquafaba is equivalent to about one whole egg, while two tablespoons of aquafaba is equivalent to about one egg white. Keep in mind that a can of chickpeas yields about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of this liquid, so about eight to 12 tablespoons.

Berries are my favorite fruits, and this is the perfect season to buy them. The whipped cream icing will melt in your mouth.

I find that aquafaba is the best egg replacer in baking. I

This recipe is a customization of my Puerto Rican Pound Cake recipe or like we call it in Spanish “Ponque”. Use fresh berries for better results but if you can’t find fresh use frozen.

For the whipped cream topping any coconut cream, vegan whipping cream or regular whipping cream will work. I used the brand Silk which is vegan, and I loved the results better than the regular whipping cream. For more cake recipes check out my Vegan Chocolate Banana Bread
