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


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a bundt pan by greasing the sides and center well with butter or nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  3. 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.
  4. Set the egg whites aside and wipe out the mixing bowl.
  5. Add 1 cup of butter to the stand mixer and beat on medium-high until the butter is light and airy.
  6. Gradually add the sugar and vanilla extract to the butter and continue to beat on medium until fluffy, pale in color, and well combined.
  7. Once the butter and sugar are combined, alternate adding the dry ingredients and eggnog to create a thick batter.
  8. When all dry ingredients and eggnog have been incorporated, use a spatula to fold the egg whites into the batter gently.
  9. Pour the batter into your prepared bundt pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until set.
  10. 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.
  11. Add the crushed beans and milk to a saucepan and bring it to a simmer.
  12. Once the milk reaches a simmer, remove it from the heat and set it aside to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  13. Using a mesh colander, strain the coffee beans out of the milk.
  14. 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.
  15. Pipe or lavishly frost the cooled bundt cake with coffee buttercream and decorate with festive sprinkles or candy.
  16. Serve with a hot cup of Kauai Coffee and enjoy.
