Café Santa Rita - A New Package

Café Santa Rita, Roasted and Ground Coffee. (100% Arábica Coffee) Contains no Gluten

Santa Rita do Quartel has a new package for their coffee. The old one had the photo of the church on the label. The new one, the red package, has an interesting recipe on the back for Coffee Cake with Chocolate and they also have a recipe or your next cup of coffee.

This particular coffee is grown in Águas da Prata and has become my favourite and usual coffee to prepare at home.

On the back of the package it says:

The basic recipe

Use a standard measure of coffee. It is recommended 80g a 100g of coffee for one liter of coffee (5 to 6 tablespoons). The correct measure must be tested until you have found the one that suits your palate.

RECIPE - Coffee Cake with Chocolate

Beat the whites of 2 eggs until white as snow. Mix the egg yolks with 1 teacup of sugar and 1/2 teacup of butter and beat well until the mass is creamy. Add 1 cup of skimmed milk and 2 teacups of wheat flour. Continue beating per 10 minutes. Add 100g of semi-bitter chocolate (the recipe said melt the chocolate - we used powdered chocolate). Aadd 1 coffeecup of coffee and mix well. Later add 1 soup spoon of yeast in the mix and I beat quickly. Remove and add clear in snow, mixing delicately. Pour the mix in a cake mould that has been coated lightly with wheat flour. Bake in an average, prewarmed oven, for 1 hour, or until a stick in the cake comes out.

We baked this cake according to the recipe on the package. It was delicious.
