I think I needed coffee intravenously today ….
Help me, I’ve got blood in my coffee stream! We had a rather busy weekend with sick kids, which meant not a huge amount of sleep when we needed it. None the less as parents we plod on.
Today I NEEDED coffee and I felt I wasn’t getting enough, I could only imagine that Hubby was feeling the same at work. I figured one way to perk up and get rid of the “Heck I need a nana-nap and it’s only Monday” blues was to make a coffee cake.
Yes, I know it’s really retro, they were HUGE in the 80’s, but short of popping down to the hospital with a bag of coffee and asking to be hooked up to an IV, I was out of ideas.
So a coffee cake I made. It had around 2 quadruple shots in the cake itself and about the same and a shot of Kahlu in the butter cream. Once iced, I promptly cut a slice for myself and then took the rest into town for hubby and the boys at work.
I must admit I felt a small hit eating it with my flat white in hand, I’m sure that will last a few more hours, until I need another one ….. coffee that is …….
Yum! Coffee anyone?
