Genoise 01 Tres Cafe (page 182) – my coffee concentrate and my turbinado sugar

for ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Genoise Tres Cafe (page 182), i am using my local turbinado sugar. i love the flavor of turbinado on coffee!

don’t worry about the size of the sugar crystals been big; it will dissolve nicely when heating the eggs.

nicely, i am making my own coffee extract.

soak at room temperature, 70 grams of fine grind coffee with 140 grams of water. cover loosely. after 24 hours, strain thru a fine mesh strainer, then thru coffee filter. it may take up to 1 hour to strain. use the amount as indicated on the recipe for coffee extract. any extra can be used to make coffee drinks by adding hot or cold water to taste.

for small amounts like the above, i enjoy using my french press. however, do not press it, keep the press above and tip the coffee over, so the press works like a fine mesh strainer. the amount of coffee grounds is too much for the press to press thru it!

coffee cake doesn’t get more real than this!
