Coffee in the Kitchen - Let's Get Baking!

We all love a little loaf with our coffee! Especially, if it is fresh from the oven or straight from the toaster - yes that is a thing.

In the summer, baking plantbased takes all the worry about leaving your deliciousness on the hot counter too long or keeping it in a backpack while you hike in North Vancouver.

Here is our favourite go-to recipe incorporates our amazing fresh-roasted and fresh brewed INVITO coffee.

Coffee Banana Loaf

There is a trick to creating a banana cake that is dense and moist, and that is to make sure to not overmix the batter. The result will be a tough cake or more like a bread. Mix the ingredients only until they are moist and well incorporated.


For the Loaf
4 overripe bananas mashed
1.5 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup coconut oil or vegan butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 INVITO Cold Brew
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

For the Streusel Topping
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
4 tbsp coconut oil or vegan butter
2 tsp cinnamon

How to Make It:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F, and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients for the cake.
  • Create a well in the middle of the bowl, and add in your wet ingredients.
  • Mix only until all of the ingredients are combined. Pour the mixture in to your loaf pan.
  • In a smaller bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the streusel topping. Sprinkle over the cake ingredients in the loaf pan.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes, until a tester comes out clean. Let the cake sit in the pan on a wire rack for ten minutes.
  • Gently pull the cake up and out of the pan using the parchment paper, and allow it to cool on the wire rack. The cake will keep for a few days on the counter if it's covered tightly.

The coffee cake will keep on the counter at room temperature for a few days if it’s tightly covered. And if you really want to make it over the top, serve it warm topped with a couple scoops of dairy-free ice cream.
