Enjoy the goodness of a Bavarian dessert with all the flavor and experience of a Lavazza coffee

By the Lavazza Team 2–3 minutes 

Bavarian coffee cake is one of the most famous variants of the popular Bavarian cream cake.

Creamy and with an overindulging taste, Bavarian coffee cake is a tasty and easy-to-make dessert.

As you can imagine, the dessert is named after the German region of Bavaria. The original Bavarian, however, was not a dessert but a drink of German origin, consisting of tea, milk, and a liqueur, imported into Italy in the early 1700s. Inspired by the drink, the Bavarian dessert was created in France in the 1800s.

To prepare this recipe, we suggest using blends such as Intenso. A bold and full-bodied blend with spicy notes and a long-lasting aftertaste from Central and South American Arabica, and Asian and African Robusta.
