For the cake:
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 3 rounded cups of sifted cake flour
- 3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 cup eggnog
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 8 egg whites, beaten until stiff peaks form
For the frosting:
- 1 cup room temperature butter
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 2-3 tbsp. Kauai Coffee beans (dark roast recommended. Try Typica Dark, Mundo Novo, or a Holiday Blend with 50% dark roasted beans)
- 1/2 cup milk
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a bundt pan by greasing the sides and center well with butter or nonstick spray.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Be careful not to over mix. Egg whites should retain some moisture and not be dry.
- Set the egg whites aside and wipe out the mixing bowl.
- Add 1 cup of butter to the stand mixer and beat on medium-high until the butter is light and airy.
- Gradually add the sugar and vanilla extract to the butter and continue to beat on medium until fluffy, pale in color, and well combined.
- Once the butter and sugar are combined, alternate adding the dry ingredients and eggnog to create a thick batter.
- When all dry ingredients and eggnog have been incorporated, use a spatula to fold the egg whites into the batter gently.
- Pour the batter into your prepared bundt pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until set.
- While the cake is baking, make the Kauai Coffee buttercream frosting. Start by lightly crushing 2-3 tablespoons of Kauai Coffee beans with a mortar and pestle or with a rolling pin and plastic bag.
- Add the crushed beans and milk to a saucepan and bring it to a simmer.
- Once the milk reaches a simmer, remove it from the heat and set it aside to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes.
- Using a mesh colander, strain the coffee beans out of the milk.
- In a mixer, beat the butter until pale and fluffy. Gradually alternate powdered sugar and coffee milk into the butter mixture until the frosting is desired consistency.
- Pipe or lavishly frost the cooled bundt cake with coffee buttercream and decorate with festive sprinkles or candy.
- Serve with a hot cup of Kauai Coffee and enjoy.
