  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 100g of thinly ground almonds or walnuts
  • 150g white sugar

For the glazing

  • 1 teaspoon of grated coffee
  • 120g of sifted sugar powder
  • 3-5 tablespoons of milk


  1. Heat your oven to 175 degrees. Melt the grated coffee in a tablespoon of boiling water and then cool it down.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda into a big bowl. Add the ground almonds or walnuts, white sugar, brown sugar and salt. Mix everything together.
  3. Make a hole in the center of the bowl and add in the oil, milk, whiskey or rum, eggs, vanilla extract and melted coffee. Scramble until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture to a kugellhof baking pan and bake for 45-50 minutes, until you can stick a toothpick in the middle and it comes out dry. Cool down the cake in its baking pan for 5-10 minutes, then turn it over into a serving plate.
  5. For the glazing: place the powdered sugar in a bowl. Melt the coffee in a tablespoon of boiling water and add it gradually to the bowl together with the milk, while stirring until you get a thick glaze. Drizzle it on the cake using a teaspoon and serve.
